The Harvest Moon is a great event, but not always downwind. I did it twice when I lived in Houston
. Once was a drifter the first afternoon and then we motored all night. The wind
never picked up above 8 kts the next day.
The following year was a blowout. Several boats were dismasted and half the fleet DNFd.
So you never know. But the rum
is good once you get there!!!
