what a difference a day makes (chapter 2)

Seriously, the ocean can be a bitch! We like to think that NOAA weather, as well as all the radio chatter about sea conditions, and our planning gives us a pretty good idea of what the sailing day will be like. Left Stonington CT yesterday and sailed for all of one hour- lost the wind- flat calm seas- and saw fish schooling and 2 sharks (well, their dorsal fins ). Took a slip at a Brewer yard Westbrook CT- lovely warm weather, dinner in the cockpit, quiet night. Predictions for today were 15-20 kt winds- 2-4 ft seas. ( previous lesson- obviously not learned!) "THAT IS AN AVERAGE OF WAVE HEIGHT" . Crossed Long Island Sound in 18-27 kt north wind (ie. gusty) in 5-8 foot seas. Now on a mooring at Port Jefferson Long Island anticipating a windy, bouncing, long night. The good news is ... they have a lovely bakery here and there's a launch to pick us up- and I'm not sick (yet). The bad new is John won't sleep in this -
So I may be on FB in the middle of the night, if anyone is surfing-
Enjoy your comfortable beds tonight friends!
