Well when the weather turns favourable, you put the hammer down and giverrrrrr… and we did! Hello New York City!!!
It was 230 miles from Sasafras River in Maryland (I couldn’t make up that name.. too cool eh)
Up to the C&D channel.. There is so much on the internet about this passage.. people are working out when to leave to at least 1 decimal point..??? Engineer sailors??
This was the information I found…… leave 1 hr and 16 minutes after slack tide.. then break up the passage in 2 segments through two tide changes ….
Either way it was a none issue..
At 2am we passed Atlantic City.. You could see it miles and miles away.. Been to Las Vegas so with good weather, we continue on…
6am brought heavy seas and considerable wind on the nose.. Snowman assured us the wind would die quickly, so plans to stop were set aside…
Just after lunch the towers of NY City rose out of the horizon.. very cool!!! We left BVI’s 2 months ago today… hummm that sounds like a long time… guess it is..
Were sitting in a small bay on Staten Island called Great KILL…??.. seeeeeems like a Nice place???
Rough plan tomorrow is to take the train (subway) from our anchorage which is supposed to be walking distance…to the ferry and do some exploring downtown NYC…Hope your having a Great Weekend!!!! Lets warm this place up… Its Freakin COLD!!!
