Sam, Stewie, Bonni and I sailed from mamaroneck to Stamford this a.m. Encountered our first squalls and blustery conditions. No problems aside from getting a bit wet and discovering a couple of leaks on deck. Eric and Lal departed yesterday evening and we are looking forward to hosting our frequent cruising companions from Canada, Carol and Dave, starting tonight. Sam Alpert and I plan to sample the SYC bar.
