Kimberlite @ sea

Kimberlite hit the high seas yesterday for the voyage to Bermuda and on to NY. Went and had a beer at AYH with them tuesday night. Tain''t much wind out there. Eric will probably read this, since that Tartan 37 is the epitomy of a seagoing toy box. Nice boat. Rigged for bear. Hopefully it won''t be snowing when he gets back into the grey waters (and skies) of the NE. KW

Don''t worry about Kimberlite. The NE has been having lovely sailing weather -- blue skies with plenty of wind. Still, I sure do miss AYH. Your mention of it gives me a craving for a Painkiller.

My recent check of winds in the vicinity of Bermuda indicates 25 to 35 knots out of the northeast. That''s what I''d call close hauled at best. I''d guess they''re a couple hundred miles out of Bermuda by now. Not sure exactly when they left.

vixile,
we beat to bermuda in 25 knots for about 3 days . when we got to the dock we noticed that a wave took about 8 feet of our rub rail off along with 12 foot section of stainless cap.
when we left bermuda we had fine conditions both herb and weather routers inc said to turn around after a day so we did.
we did not get another window to leave so i left her in bermuda for a month.
looking at the surface, and wind wave charts we made the right decision. seas were out of the north north west to north at about 35 knots average a beat at best, gusting higher.
seas in the stream were 13-16 feet.
i have gone offshore and encountered these and bigger seas and winds but i have never gone out knowing i will take a beating.
off to france next week to check out the progress of the new boat.
eric
