Surfing the waves

We are on the move again.
We left Vero Beach around noon right after Fedex delivered us some packages. The weather forecast was 15-20 knots with 3-5 ft waves. We decided to go offshore to do some downwind sailing. The only problem was that the actual weather was 20-30 of wind with waves 5-9 feet. We were for a sleigh ride. We put one reef in the main sail and no jib and the boat took off. We would frequently see Galaxy doing 12 knots surfing the waves. The wind generator was not able to handle all of that wind and one blade broke. Some pictures from the trip below.
