Re: 2019 Sailing Season on the Chesapeake

Had a beautiful sail yesterday . Winds 12-14 steady out of the SE made for long 7 mile tacks back and forth across the Bay on near haul and beam reaches. Haleakula clipped along at 6.5 with a nice 12% lean. Light jackets as the Bay is still a chilly 53 degrees but sunny and behind the dodger some kept us reaching for cool water vs hot chocolate.
New wind instrument worked flawlessly.

Lunch underway was fresh chicken salad with red grapes, mango , roasted corn , red onion , green pepper with cumin and lime mayo.

Night before we spent anchored in Burley Creek hiding from the 35 mph gusts . Dinner was a couple of grilled fillets , grilled balsamic marinated portobellos, broccoli salad, and roasted Yukon potatoes. My wife made a flourless chocolate torte for dessert.

Sunday AM meant lox and Kona with matzoh as I honor not eating levening for the 8 days of Passover.

Haleakula has been properly shaken down for our upcoming 3+ weeks heading to Newport/ Block Island/ Sag Harbor and points in the LI Sound.

If the yard can accommodate she will come out of the water April 29 for 4 days and have her hull waxed and buffed and have a new boot stripe painted on.
