Long Island (of Boston)

Madrigal had her first sail of 2010 today, and all went very well!

We decided to just sail out to Boston's Long Island, where we used the rocna for the first time. What a scary feeling to throw such an expensive, heavy chunk of metal over the side of the boat!

We made up a lunch of fish cakes and corn bread and played a game of cards. While we took the dinghy along, we decided to just keep it a short trip so we never did use it.

The sail itself went really well too - we got up over 7 knots a few times and averaged 5 knots or so. Not bad, considering the condition of our bottom!
