Let’s Go Surfing

The trip yesterday was more than a little exciting. We were surfing waves at up to 14 or 15 nm after we rounded Cape May and made extremely good time. Good thing, since we got in 20 minutes before the frontal line and thunderstorms passed over us.

The final passage into Atlantic City was harrowing. With the tide running out and large waves coming in, there were breaking seas, even in the channel and we surfed the entire way in. I did not see the breaking waves until we were committed. The bow was almost submerged at times, as the spray completely covered the boat. I estimate we were doing well over 20 knots. I had the kids below, but still a bit more exciting than desired! The 37 did great.
