Sorry for the drift, but neat little town. Big decoy country

I think you mentioned that before???

Tidewater is good, but overpriced. There is a newer place in town called Laurrapin Grille (sp?). It's less expensive and the food is better.

Sapperwhite Coming back up to Havre de Grace on wed. morning 6am was pretty "gnarly". Winds 10 to 15 from the NNE. That means I tacked about 40 times shore to shore between still pond and hdg. I think I covered 50nm to get 15 to 20 as the bird flies. That saying about gentlemen not beating makes more and more sense as my season continues. I'm pretty sure that you can gauge where the weather will come from based off of my destination. If I'm going "there", the wind will surely come from "there". I don't think I've had a good long run all season.

I know John, it can get overwhelming. You really should watch Giu's videos. They'll make a sailor outta ya!

JohnRPollard There was some BFS wind further down the Bay to the south of you guys. I nearly soiled my pants just reading about it:

Winds at Rappahannock Light

Winds at Thomas Point Light

speciald What winds? Slept thru the night without any noise here in the Inner Harbor.

jaschrumpf Alas, true gnarliness was never reached. The winds stayed in the low 20's, and I was warned to expect stuff up in the 50's. I don't usually double up the docklines for a mere topsail breeze.

And now the weather service is only calling for winds in the teens. Ah well, a BFS will have to wait for another day.
