Pretty quiet night for sleeping in Mill Creek. Morning was overcast, threatening rain but not too cold. 60F in the enclosed cockpit.
Hoisted anchor at 7:30 a.m. and motored against the tide and moderate 10-15k winds — our speed by well under 6K for four hours. With as tide change and hoisting the main, we made 7+ knots sailing around Rappahannock entrance to Wolftrap light and beyond.
Our destination was Hospital Point on the Elizabeth River near Norfolk, but with heavy northeast winds forecast for the night, we decided to keep going to a more protected anchorage.
Made it through the Great Bridge Lock and found the last spot to tie up just before the Great Bridge Bridge. Did 72 miles today.
Very warm evening. Another nice day. — dj
