OK, so NOAA published a "small craft advisory" that was supposed to be ending at 8AM.....
Highest True Wind Speed - 38 knots
Lightest winds - 21 knots
Sailing time from Oriental to River Dunes - 4+ hours
Direction we wanted to go - North
Direction winds were from - North
Ahh, but a good sailing day with 2 reefs in the main! (Mainsail not fully extended due to high winds)
Finally made it to River Dunes - wonderful sandwich and enjoying their high speed wifi!!!
We'll be off to a close-by anchorage for the night....more when time allows!
