20 knots speed over ground- Blast Reaching in the Gulf Stream

Well the sloppy no wind period is over, and although we did take a big hit in that corner I mentioned, we are cruising now.  18-20 knots of wind on the beam, a wet and wild ride.  We were close reaching with the A3 in 12 knots of breeze, and changed to a JT just as the breeze built.  Charleston here we come.  The boat is a bit of a rodeo ride.....but everyone is holding up well.
