Back to Cape May, and on to the Chesapeake Bay

02 September 2018 | Cape May, New Jersey

Leaving Oyster Bay and Sagamore Hill (the summer home of Teddy Roosevelt), we timed our departure to coincide with the favorable flood tide down the East River through New York City. Retracing our steps gave us pleasure in the memories of our activities in 'the Big Apple'. But in no time at all, we were passing the Stature of Liberty, and heading under the Verazano Narrows Bridge to the New Jersey coastline. Once past the sea chop caused by the Hudson River outflow and the opposing wind, we settled in for a comfortable sail towards Cape May. But soon the wind lessened and we were rescinded to motor-sailing through the night, arriving in Cape May at 1 pm, on Sunday the 2nd. During our trip down the coast, we planned how to use the flood tide the next morning to help us in our approach to the Chesapeake-Delaware Canal, and its favorable transit through to Chesapeake Bay before sunset on Monday the 3rd. In the mean time we are anchored next to the US Coast Guard station in Cape May in 14' of water (at high tide, and a 5' tidal change, leaving us room for our 6.5' draft). Oh, and we set an 'anchor alarm' using our chartplotter and GPS.
