Sail #3: 27/05/12, Bay Head Cruise - 17.9 nm, 5 kph, 3:18:19 elapsed time
Sunny, warm, nice steady wind...a real classic sailing day. Cruised up into Bay Head at a steady 6+ knots. We were joined by Prospector, Gaila, Ever After, Fly-Bye-Wire, Abigale, and From Away.
Full main with the reefed headsail.
Daniel took the helm for most of the trip while I puttered and fetched refreshments. Allison and Robert's first trip of the year and both did a great job of running the main and jib sheets.
From Away thought their engine was on fire, but it turned out to be a false alarm. It did provide a bit of excitement for awhile, altho we were in Bay Head while all that was going on so we weren't much help.
