    We sailed out to Matinicus Rock a few days ago in a much larger vessel in darkness and lumpy seas. It is impressive to see smaller, open boats do the same passage.

    Yup,…mine too! Just finished my morning coffee as the video came to a close. Made me turn to look out over Lake Bomoseen and my Baybird,…”Starling”,…waiting for me. Should get up to about 7 knots today and can’t wait to get out on her!

    Everybody needs to do a little adventure once-in-awhile. That was a good one!

    Great videos both. This had to be the begging, although perhaps a little more adventurous, of all the small craft gatherings that have become so popular.

    Thanks and please keep up the great work!
