February Everglades Challenge Practice Run

Yesterday I did 28 nm in the Chesapeake Bay. There were very lite winds and I spent a lot of time fighting the current. A lot of close haul sailing accross the bay. From the above zig-zag on the picture you can get a good idea how well the Hobie TI points. The wind died as I finally reached the second crossing of the Chaesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The run along the tunnel road was long. In the afternoon the wind veered to NE and the temperature dropped 10 degrees.

As usual I shot some video. It takes time to produce these videos. I will update as soon as it is on You-Tube...
