I have not done the trip yet. Planning on leaving this early June. I will run the reefing lines back to the cockpit this spring. Currently at the mast
and hope it will be easier from the cockpit. Talked to my sail maker (loose footed main) and he said I could forgo tying the reef points just use the tack & clew. Going on deck
in rough sea conditions solo can be a little scary been there done that hope the cockpit thing works .
Other things REEF early .Have jib furler
so it can be winched in . Got caught in water
spout in Georgian Bay last year. 90kt winds
I hope to make it to the Chesapeake area by late August.leave the boat
there till December,then south
Do you have any recommendation for short term dockage mooring
in the Chesapeake area.
