Cape May: A Port in a Storm

21 July 2018 | Cape May, New Jersey
George Stonecliffe
From Yorktown we made it to the southern most NJ port, Cape May, in 30 hours of motor-sailing. There was a brief window of opportunity to go north, and although a day ahead of our plan, we took it...which you have to do when it is given to you. Friday night, the 20th was clear with wispy clouds, and a comfortable 79F. But a significant gale is on its way Saturday morning. Gale 35-45 knots of wind!!! So now as we type this entry, Saturday afternoon, it's blowing and raining to beat the band! So we are catching up on chores, such as, this Sailblog, bank updates, stowing items that were accumulating, etc. One of the great things to us about Cape May is that the eastern North American bird migration comes down the coast through Cape May in October. So after heading north to NYC and Boston, we plan on returning by October to Chesapeake Bay and Cape May to enjoy the migration. But for now we are hunkered down in 'Julia Max' while the storm passes.
