Our delivery was successful and completed nearly five hours ahead of schedule. The weather was a bit challenging but the crew never complained and there were plenty of smiling faces. The southerly finally kicked in around 1900 and we were able to cross Cape Cod Bay under spinnaker doing between 8 and 9 knots. We sailed the rest of the night on a beam reach and as the breeze eventually shifted to NE we performed our first tack just off Cape Elizabeth, Maine at 0730 on Sunday morning (less than 10 miles from home).
Please pass my sincere thanks along to your entire crew who made our commissioning such a wonderful experience. I can not say enough about how well we were treated and how satisfied we felt when we left the dock on Saturday morning. To say we are extremely happy would be an understatement.
