Memorial Day Weekend

We had a great weekend with our Severn River Yacht Club friends in Cambridge, Maryland.  We sailed over there on Saturday morning about 11, from our mooring ball, and got in five hours later to Cambridge Yacht Club.

We motor sailed the entire way, with our main up in the Bay as almost head-to-wind for 12 miles.  Then we turned into Knapps Narrows and went under the draw bridge.  From there we had our jib up, but left the leeward engine running to keep up speed.  We averaged 6.5 knots down the Bay and 8.5 across the Choptank.

The SRYC gang was of course, a blast.  Lots of food and drink.  The committee chair for the event had some activities planned to keep us on our toes as well.

We toured Cambridge and took advantage of the incredible weather.  None of us can remember such perfect weather on a Memorial day weekend.

I played with the GOPRO HD camera I bought for BVI and tried to replicate some of the videos and photos on our boat.

We sailed back about 9am Monday morning.  There was almost no wind so we motored all the way home.  We still made it in five and a half hours.

Can't wait for the next sailing trip...
