I finally totaled the mileage from the spring trip, 266.81 nautical miles / 307.04 statute miles. That includes four evenings of thunderstorms and four days and nights of gusts to 35 mph. So I'll call the sail the stormy 307. When I get a chance I'll copy links to the daily logs and post them in the column at the right of this page.
The bad news it was a stormy trip. The good news is equipment and SPARTINA dealt with it all quite well. And I think I made a few good decisions along the way. When I got back to the marina all the gear was clean and dry, there was food and water to spare. and I was well-rested. It is very important to me to know that I can deal with bad weather.
So it is day sailing - lots of morning and evening sailing - for the next couple months. All the while I'll be looking forward to the fall sail on Chesapeake Bay.

This is Windy.com's heat map for right now. Interesting and a little bit frightening. Forecasts say temperatures should drop by tomorrow. I hope so.
