Wednesday was a windy day on the water. NOAA posted small craft warnings. Cheryl Caleca, Mora Thompson and I reviewed our Basic Class skills information, then Mora and I went sailing.
Departing the dock at noon with full main and genoa, we sailed out to the Mo “A” marker and back (about 12 nm) in a record time of 3 hours. The apparent wind was 20+ knots and our boat speed topped out at 7.8 knots. Everything ran smoothly and effortlessly.
Mora performed and successfully executed all the activities on the boat related to our Basic Class. Great job Mora!
