The temperature dropped 30°, the winds were reported as high as 80 knots and the camper was being blown around a bit along with the trailer.

Skippers and crews were discussing whether they would venture out in these conditions, including us. While several decided not to go, Greg and I decided to go out and come back in if it was too much for us. We have still not used our band new sails because we don't want to blow them out the first time we use them. When we got in the water... Read More
