|The sun is rising over the Hampton River|
as we docked at BlueWater at 5:20 AM!
We had a great sail from Bermuda. The winds were good most of the way so we flew our gennaker which pulled us along at 8-10 knots. That was with a 2.0+ southwest current against us, too. Once we made our turn to the Gulf Stream, the sail came in and we flew wing and wing for awhile. We had some motoring when the wind direction was unfavorable, but it was mostly a sailing trip. Just as we like it-motor off and the sound of the sea!
|I just love sailing under this sail!|

Brizio who had sailed with us from Bermuda
|Ron and Tom F. were great helpers in all area..|
