Sub Zero First Sail

Despite the ice on the water this morning the bright sun took the chill off a bit. With lots of little tasks checked off our lists the boat was ready for a sail. The wind was very light, but I wanted to run the engines a bit so we motored out of the bay and hoisted sail. The wind was reading less than five knots, but we were sailing along at up to four and a half knots... pretty amazing.

The boat was perfectly flat and not a single item budged even after sailing across some tug boat wakes. The water temperature is forty two degrees and the air temperature around 35 at noon so not exactly sub zero, but the ice this AM was a shocker.

Kathy made a delicious Easter lunch of Grilled tuna, cannelloni bean and fontina cheese sandwiches with fresh spinach and tomato aioli sauce. She is really enjoying here new large and versatile galley and turning out some Very tasty meals.
