Memorial Day Cruise to Useppa

Turned out to be a real challenge for the brave sailors who weathered not one but two storms on Saturday night, and numerous unexpected boat emergencies. Kudos to Colleen Wagner who singlehanded had to pull up her anchor in 40+ knot winds. What a gal! As usual everyone helped each other with the untoward incidents that arose and while it did not turn out to be the long peaceful weekend we hoped for all of our sailors made it back to home port with lots of stories to tell.
