Against the tide, up to the Bristol bridge and back with. Sailed up s l o w l y, sometimes standing still over the bottom, but sailing 2 kts through the water. Stood still next to Red 40 buoy for a while with both of us leaving wakes. Had some great puffs, but had to eventually row home to Red Dragon (with the still outgoing tide, made up to 5 kts over ground.). It is amazing that the massive Delaware River reverses direction every six and a half hours or so between Trenton and the Bay.
