Mudlark Fun
« on: August 22, 2017, 05:49:51 PM »
Took Mudlark out into Buzzards Bay today with my wife and two friends. There was a Small Craft Advisory starting at noon, so we got out at 10 am and sailed until about 1 pm. Winds were the typical SWers but blowing 18+ kts with 2-3 ft rollers with an occasional 4 ft cresting wave that splashed us pretty well once we got out of the Cove where we are moored. I had the Main reefed and about midway into the sail I furled the jib to about 75%.  We did have a bit of water coming into the cockpit thru the scuppers but we minimized it by shifting the heavier passengers forward.

All in all, Mudlark handled both the wind and seas quite well and our friends had a great time.
