Spinning in the Storm

The last couple of days have been rough, one storm after the other. Last night was the worse. It really kicked our butts. We got stuck with the main up full when the wind shifted and we needed to run down wind. But don't know how (or are too chicken) to let the main out far enough to run down wind. We were spinning at first then settled into a North direction. Not the way we wanted to go but it was too dangerous to get up on deck and bring the sail down. 15 foot seas and 30+ wind. So we just waited it out until dawn, about 5 hours.

Glad to hear fall's nice weather has come. Have fun with the girls (Melissa and Jane, significant others of Steve and Lynn) on Friday, tell everyone I said hi.

Luv, T
