GREYHAWK's wicked good adventure

Six men sailed a leaky little boat to Maine....

Sailing up the Chesapeake through heavy showers, beating down Delaware Bay, reaching though an offshore gale, sailing in the fog at night, a spinnaker run across Cape Cod Bay ... read all the details here:

Congratulations Tim.

I noticed that Greyhawk was gone from the Creek and had hoped that she had sailed safely home. I'm glad that we had a chance to meet face to face.

Jeff

Jeff,

earlier in June we had sailed up the creek and saw SYNERGY docked in Martin's Cove -- does this mean you got your house back?

Regards,

Tim,

Yes, as things worked out I ended with my house back. I really love being home again and having my workshop again. This spring I reworked Synergy's forward cabin a bit and replaced the uphostery. I have been also working on her sail handling gear a bit. I also took delivery of a new #2 genoa that was cut a little full like the leading edge of a # 1. This sail has proven to be wonderful, with a very wide range down to a knot or two of wind on up to approximately 20 knots of apparent wind. The old girl is really coming along. I just took her over to get hauled.
You can still see her old hailing Port of Boothbay Harbor when the transom needs waxing.

I hope that your summer cruising goes well and I look forward to hearing about your progress with Greyhawk now that she is in her new home waters.

Regards,
Jeff

That sounded like a fun trip, despite the rain. Great job!
