We knew we had to sail into the wind and that we would probably have to motor most of the way. We started with a decent sail but then had to motor if we going to make it to Annapolis in time to have a good rest before tomorrow's race. We ran two hour watches because the wind and the cold and the sea spray was relentless. It was about 20-25 knots on the nose and at one point 4-6 ft waves. We're here alongside other boats planning to race tomorrow. It's always great to meet new people who love to do crazy things like racing old sailboats. I'll be running the GoPro for part of the race tomorrow to try get some good downwind footage. We ran the third reefing line in case we need to use it. The winds will be messy at the south end of the Bay as we close at the race Saturday afternoon. We are going to sleep really well tonight. Keep watching our spot tracker to know where are. Thanks as always for following us and keeping us in your thoughts.
Here are a few pictures of Wednesday to Thursday.

We plan to write some notes here about our sail trip and the preparations for it
