Had some great sailing yesterday coming back from Smith Island down to Reedville. Beam reach most of the way in 10-15kts with fairly smooth waves of only about 3 feet with a pretty long period. Saw a new boat speed record of 7.1 kts which is a pretty respectable clip for a short fat 26 foot boat like East Wind. Even had the Assymetrical up for a bit in the morning before the wind piped up and made her handle like a bag of angry cats.

Did manage to get crabcakes at the one open restaurant we came across at Smith Island that was open but have otherwise been cooking aboard. Nothing too cheffy but we're not starving. Had ribeyes last night with steamed carrots and a caprese salad. The previous dinner we cooked was a good hearty from scratch chicken noodle soup which was spot on in the cold rain. Even came with a dessert crab who happened to fall for the old chicken bone on a string trick. Tonight is beef curry which I look forward to as well.
Sounds like you had a great time. Explore Ononcock on the Eastern shore on you next trip . Great little town with eclectic pubs and restaurants.

Sound like you had good eats too��������
