Neuse River Sailing Trip

Neuse River Sailing Trip

It was another wonderful weekend for the dogs day of summer.  The temperature was in the mid-80’s with low humidity.  The sky was clear, winds out of NNW at 5-10.  I notice that when the forecast calls for 5-10 knots, it is actually more like 15 knots.  The worst part of the weekend, was that I had to go to work on Monday.

At one point, we reach 6.2 knot on beam reach.  We travel 14,8 natural miles. Our average speeds as 3.4 knots, and we were underway for 3 3/4 hours.
