|inthesprings||Yeah, its great there in the "off season". Mahogany shoals is closing next weekend I'm advised so be sure to get your fill. The weather does sound awesome starting sunday, alas we have public hearings and such (work) tuesday and thursday, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for friday. Too bad. Woulda been fun to meet anyway.|

That sucks about your genoa Ted! Repair I guess?
Well I guess Summer Boost will be riding out this blow just fine then, eh Brad. Sounds like you guys had a big boat party.
So we were supposed to be sailing to Block Island today, but I guess not. Supposed to be the company trip. The boss will take his boat and I mine. Anyway, we have rescheduled to next week. Weather providing we will be leaving friday, returning probably monday. Staying at Paynes I believe. If anyone is around, or feels like going, give a holler. Just a lot of eating, imbibing and relaxing. It usually proves fun.

|tweitz||Those winds on Sunday were pretty strong in Gardiner's Bay. I went out with my son and son-in-law, both of whom turned a bit green, and we came back when some of the UV screen on the genoa started to shred. A lot of boats out, but a lot of wind and some pretty good waves for the bay.|

Glap the trip went well.
DavidPM came and rafted up with us, along with a Hanse 47 that happened by with a big family. It was quite a party. And my 44 pound CQR held us in spite of 25+ knot winds. (Stayed up a bit doing anchor watch, and Colin from the Hanse 47 popped up on deck every 90 minutes to take a look too.)
I dove on the CQR the next day and it was filly 3 inches under the sand. The only thing I could see was the little piece of (floating) poly rope that is attached to head of the CQR. Otherwise it would have been difficult to find. The anchor was really dug in.

|tweitz||Glad you enjoyed it. I will have to try there some time, though its so close to the Mystic Seaport, I will probably go the rest of the way. I did do Mystic Seaport earlier this year and it was great.|

So we went to Dodsons. A very nice operation I must say. And what a bunch of very expensive sailboats floating in the harbor there. Very few powerboats around relatively.
Anyway, we had a very nice sail both ways. Came through the race on the way back which was interesting. It was supposed to be slack tide, but there was still a lot of water moving around. 3' waves sprang up too when it was otherwise less than a 1'. Good times.
Thanks for the help guys.
