Classic Day

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.
