OCTOBER 23RD, 2008
Winds were supposed to be NE @ 10 - 15. So it is time to start making some progress back up the Bay. However, after a nice sail down the Rappahannock River, we found the winds to be only about 8 - 10 knots and the chop that had developed yesterday was still rolling down the Bay. Our boat requires about 12 knots of wind to sail effectively into a chop so we gave up on the idea of heading north. Instead we turned south and sailed into the Piankatank River and anchored inside the hook forming Fishing Bay.
The anchorage was perfect. We were protected from the wind and waves but we still had grand views towards the west and the sunset.
Perhaps we should just keep going south like everyone else was doing.
