Cruisers

02 October 2011 | Atlantic Highlands, NJ
Bill: 70 clear, light wind sw
In two years we have met some of the most amazing people. We think that people who are part of the cruising community are a remarkable bunch. Of course they come from all walks of life, economic status and from every corner of the world.

There is an instant camaraderie that comes from knowing that we are all together in close proximity to the elements. Until today we have found every one of them to be kind and generous even under the worst of circumstances. We have seen remarkable cheerfulness even when two boats are cheek and jowl because one has dragged into another in a squall. We have seen people flock to help a cruiser aground, people willing to contribute parts and expertise to someone broken down far from a yard or Tow Boat US. Old salts are always willing to offer suggestions to new cruisers. This is one reason why we love it out here.

Well, today we had a very unsettling encounter with someone on a boat that was either mean spirited or (hopefully) they we having a rough go of it and let the wrong comments fly. Not the kind of first we like. And on the other hand, pretty remarkable that two years out has given us so many remarkable encounters.

We moved to be away from these folks. New position: 40 25.091'n:074 01.366'w
