Sailing a 50 Knot Gale | Dinghy Falls off Davit | New Helm Enclosure
We recently sailed from Charleston area of South Carolina to our Winter home in Port of the Islands Marina just south of Marco Island Florida. Of course, we would end up with a Gale! 50 Knot wind gusts with sustained 35-40 delayed us for 3 days. Watch the fun!
