We're takiing a break
02 August 2012 | Poughkeepsie, NY
We made it to the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club today. We're so far ahead of schedule that we decided to spend a 4 or 5 days here. Its a nice place with friendly people. We're on a mooring here, but it's only $20/night with access to showers and of course a bar....lol. Water and laundry are also available.We got a late start this morning so about 10 miles out, the tide changed so we were motoring against a 4 kt current. When you are only going a little over 6kts, it slows you waaaaaaaay down. But, learning has occured....I'll pay more attention to the tide tables in the future. The yacht club is having a party Friday night and we were invited so that should be fun. Also one of the members has made the same trip we are planning many times, so tomorrow he said he would share any information he had. I'll be sure to grap a pen and paper......TTFN.
