Small fry anomg the big fish...Markus
20-Sep-2011, Newport, Rhode Island
In Newport, RI, for two days. Feeling a bit small among all those old 12m Americas Cup yachts and new mega yachts ;-). We went to The Newport Shipyard today where the average yacht's boom is bigger than Namani! Had a very surprise there with the people from Bluewater Technologies, who went out of their way to provide us with 15 feet of GTO15 cable for our SSB antenna connection. Made us feel not so small after all ;-).

Moored in Cuttyhunk, the outermost of the Elisabeth Islands. Feels very tranquil and remote with some interesting WW II lookout posts. Ironically, this is the first place where we meet another German boat, Rasmus (I guess thise lookouts are no longer manned...).

Made it through the Cape Cod Canal today and are now anchored in Onset Bay, enjoying a beautiful sunset. Feels like a bit of a milestone and we are curious to explore a few more places that we zipped past on our way north in 2008 (Cuttyhunk, Newport, Block Island, Long Island Sound and New York).
