We left Oxford in a very cold (-3 C) morning and start to sail south out of the Chesapeake Bay.
Soon the wind decreased and we had to start the engine that we were able to finally turned off only after exiting the Chesapeake
early this morning.
Now sailing with the code-zero in variable winds 6-8 kts
Last minute - on the way - quick service to the winch.
Sunset in the Chesapeake
Sailing wing on wing with new Doyle mainsail and code-zero.
