WE made excellent progress from Cape May today, in most part due to flying the cone of shame, otherwise known as motor-sailing.
Note for non-sailors: What I call the cone of shame is the inverted cone you are required to hang from the mast when steaming and sailing at the same time.
Note for sailors: It takes about thirty seconds to raise a day shape, and you can buy one for about $30. Hint.
So yes, we motor-sailed. Offsetting the shame was the fact that we did about 8 knots the whole way and overtook everyone else. Oh,and we made it all the way up to Chesapeake City (not a city. not even a town) on the C&D Canal.
