Departed Port Washington at 7:10 motor sailing toward the New York City skyline. Our AIS is great, identifying huge cargo ships, barges being pushed by tugs, and other yachts of all sizes. We timed the current perfectly and we're flying at 10.5 kts. through Hell gate ( cudos to John). We were amazed at how little traffic we encountered until we got to Governor's Island & Liberty Island.
The high- speed ferry boats & helicopters transporting commuters, sightseeing boats, fishing boats, moored huge barges, and coast guard boats were everywhere. We were able to get close to the Staute of Liberty and get some great pictures! Once passed lady liberty, we opened the jib in 12-15 kt winds and sailed under the Verrazano bridge down Coney Island to Sheepshead Bay Yacht Club in Brooklyn. As we traveled down the East River, through what felt like the middle of the city with skyscrapers at water's edge, we sang.." We may never pass this way again......that's why I want it with you".... (we've been singing a lot on this trip.)
May not post for a few days depending on the seas- making a nonstop run for Norfolk - 275 miles away- (we average 5-6 kts.) leaving early AM with what sounds like a favorable weather window. Check out the photo album on this blog entitled "NYC".
Here's hoping for fair winds and following seas! ⛵️
