Sailing to a Pig Roast

What a great reason to sail to the DNR camp on the Wye River – good music, good food and good company! And, it was an outstanding sail over. We slipped the dock lines about 0900, had the main sail up before we left the creek and did not drop sail till we were within a few hundred yards of the anchorage.

What started as very light NE wind, slowly built to 8-14kts giving us SOG of 5 – 6.5Kts on a comfortable point of sail down the Bay and up Eastern Bay around the point back south to the entrance to Wye River.

After a bit of a shuffle with anchor boats, we built a 6-boat raft nose to toes and had lots of great company.

The on-shore festivities got under way with a pig roast and all the fixing along with live music. Some of the revelry extended well into the evening making for a slow morning to follow.

A great treat!

We paid for the trip down with a hard slog against adverse tide and wind.

After a long beat across the Bay and a tack back, making little progress north we fired the engine and motor-sailed north past Thomas Point until we cleared Tolly Point. Then it was an easy run to home.
