Here are a few pics of SLY at the start of the Down the Bay Race held Memorial Day Weekend. The weather was great! We saw 15-25 knots out of the NNW for most of the ride and the wind went very light and started shifting to the S when we got to the lower portion of the Bay. We crossed the finish line at 0340, behind two trimarans. We corrected to 2nd in the ORC Division - (there were only 2 boats).

Welcome to SLY Sailing, this is the website with the information for those racing and sailing on sly and our family and friends. SLY is an Xp44 Sailboat in Annapolis. The boat was new in 2014 and formerly named Rival and had won the Annapolis to Bermuda Race in 2015. I purchased the in May of 2018, 28 days before the start of the 2018 Annapolis to Bermuda Race in early June. We took line honors and corrected to 4th place on the PHRF handicap. Here is a video of SLY doing the 2018 A2B Race . Here are a few articles from Capital Gazzette: Fox hopes to sail SLY to line honors in the 21st Annapolis to Bermuda Race SLY is first to finish the Annapolis to Bermuda Race
SLY is back in the water. We put the Offshore main on and it looked pretty good, shows some use, but appears to be worthy. Friday it was cold with a great breeze. We attempted to calibrate the instruments but found the Analog Expansion Module was shot and we were not getting any wind or boat speed data.
