The tough part is over!

We’ve past the worst portion of this gulf and are now sailing with the wind just aft of the beam in 20 knots.
We saw 31 knots for a bit, but all and all a pretty easy evening.
Only 4 miles off the beach, sailing in 30 knots on a beam reach is something like ice skating laps at full speed in a rink that’s just been zambonni’d (nice word) with the lights off.
Smooth, fast sailing, its just tough to know where the edges are.
Pretty cool!
