Day 1: Rough start leaving Newport as we got spin fouled badly on headsail while hoisting. Sunny and clear, decided to take inshore route and headed up Long Island doing about 9 kts SOG. Stopped for the night right before hell's gate so we could wait for the current to switch. Got spin fouled again because we tried to do a bareheaded takedown

Day 2: Lots of fun motor sailing through hell's gate and Statue of Liberty, got lots of great photos. Offshore was rough. Big rolling swell hitting us from the side meant bad seasickness. Cold, intermittent rain, miserable

Day 3: Better sea state and less rain and we made it through the offshore leg to Delaware doing ~8 kts SOG. Made it to the c&d around 4 and stopped for fuel, food, and showers. High spirits with a lovely all-female crew and Steve. Makes yesterday worth it

Day 4: GORGEOUS upwind sailing weather into Annappolis, 10 kts, no chop, smooth sailing

Day 1: Start of Annapolis to Newport race! Upwind up the bay meant a thousand tacks, J2 up most of the way with me and Zach on consistent headsail trim

Day 2: Out of the mouth of the bay early morning and around Chesapeake lighthouse mid morning put up FR0 to pass boat in front of us and gaining of ranger (navy Farr 40). Set the A2 for a long sleigh ride up the coast

Day 3: A2 up all day, great conditions, passed ranger and continued making crazy leads all day. Nonstop active trimming. Pushing ourselves hard

Day 4: Final push to finish, everyone exhausted. Crossed the line with a beautiful A2 gybe around 5:00 am in 1st place - corrected to 2nd after ORC penalties

Day 1: 50 def, cold, raining, we launched from OB and sailed through Long Island Sound uneventfully, through Hell's Gate which was an exciting first! But it was still low vis, raining, and very cold. Greeted by the Atlantic Ocean with huge swells and high winds. Began watch. 4/7 crew completely debilitated due to seasickness including me. Worst night of my life. 100NM

Day 2: Cold, rain, high swells, and high winds continued throughout the night with continued seasickness until sun came up and wind and swells lessened. Reached the mouth of the Delaware Bay to completely flat water and high spirits returned. Reached the C&D canal by nightfall. 120NM

Day 3: Warm, sunny, low wind, high spirits, we motored most of the way through the Chesapeake Bay to Annapolis. 60 NM

Around Block Island Race cancelled due to heavy winds, so we went out sailing for fun/practice. Upwind J3 peel to J4 then to storm jib (straight to single reef in main). We were cruising and was finding the groove well @ helm. Downwind we flew A4 spin and broke the boats speed record at 10.7 kts! Lost the backstay and then the spin and put storm trysail up before it started to rain and we dropped sails and motored in
