FurledSails  


 Barnegat Bay

"Trailered Shorebird down to Trixie's at Berkeley Island. I was joined by Mike Walters with his Dovekie Egret.   Wind was predicted to be 5-10 mph from the west and we were anticipating a perfect weekend sail over to Island Beach State Park (IBSP).  We even brought fishing poles and clam rakes.  As is often the case, the weather was quite different from the forecast.  Actual wind speeds were 18-24 W with higher gusts. I sailed across the bay with a single reef while Mike decided to play it safe and motored over.  Mike said I did better than 6 kts across the bay."
