Summer Cruise Day 5

Today we had wonderful winds! It seemed like if mother nature was saying "Sorry for the lack of wind yesterday, here have some more!"

 

We met up with Tim (Marialo) on the North side of Sharps Island (which is underwater). We met up for a while and then set off again while the winds were still excellent. We sailed until sunset and then dropped the anchor out in the middle of the bay in very unprotected waters. 

It was calm when we dropped the hook, but then the weather picked up. The current and winds were opposite each other, causing our full keel sailboat to point to the current while the winds caused the boat to ride over the anchor rode and take all the seas on the stern. This led to a very annoying slapping sound as the 1 foot waves smacked the stern overhang all night long.
