Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

A couple folks asked for details, so, I'll post for all.

On Monday, we launched our Hunter 40.5 in the snow. ;-(
Spent the overnight at Annapolis Landing. Had dinner with a friend at
the Annapolis smokehouse.

Tuesday, departed around 07:30 and arrived 16:30 at Summit North
Marina. Motored the entire way. It was uneventful in a good way. 56 nm.

Wednesday, departed at 07:00 and had the current with us in the last couple miles of the canal. Gave it back in the Delaware River where the current was against us, however, with the sails up we were showing 7-9 knots for most of the trip. The wind was on our back. We stayed east of the channel for most of the trip. Our jib sheet was not properly attached and it blew out so we were on the main for most of the trip. Our course took us close to the ferry terminal and then around the bottom, a few hundred yards off the peers and jetties; plenty of depth there. Arrived in Cape May at Utsch's at about 1600. Cut the corner from the canal entrance a little tight and touched bottom at the entrance. Dinner at Lucky Bones; I'd go back. 66 nm.

The forecast looks good for tomorrow. My daughter is threatening mutiny.
