    I sailed out of Bokeeliadownwind to Pelican Bay in Charlotte Harbor about an hour after J.F. andMeade crossed the Bay. We were sailing “Aunt Louise”, my Wm Garden Eel, a muchheavier vessel than the EC boats, and we were running almost straight down windunder jib alone and averaged 4-1/2 kts. The seas were running 2-1/2 to 3 feetand steep, and wind reports were 18 to 20 Kts, hard to catch the strength ofthe wind and ways on video.

    Some information about Randy Smyth's unique rig on Jim Brown's podcast here (he was serendipitously present just as Smyth came in to Key Largo). http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/7/a/8/7a85...5118af03e0c30f -- Wade
