2015.

We still managed some sailing in the morning and early afternoon of June 27 (the original date), good wind until the big blow. Almost all of us made it in before the squall hit. The last Cat has a good story to tell going trough the inlet in a squall 30+ mph, but they came back safe as well. Safety will always be our first priority.

It turned out to be a perfect day, NE wind 10-15 on the way out and approaching 20 for the return and flat seas to top it all.
