Hi Judy!

Nice Post! Welcome!

Glad you enjoyed your time on the water... and that the T-Storm didn't damper your enthusiasm!

We are back from our trip to NYC.Trip to Cape May was uneventfull. Up the coast of NJ first to Atlantic City (my old stomping ground), Manesquan Inlet ( will never do again as there is absolutely no place to comfortably anchor) to seeing the majestic Statue of Liberty as we rounded the corned of Coney Island coming in from Sandy Hook at 9+ knots (15 knott wind + 2 knot current) Seeing the Lady come into view as the immigrints must have sans the Verrizanno Narrows Bridge was inspiring. Liberty Landing Marina was perfect just next to Ellis Island. At night there was a band with the lit Manhattan Skyline behind it.

We stayed an extra day as the winds were on the bow at 30 knots and took the $7 water taxi ride to the financial district in Manhattan and spent the day. You have to ask Donna how we looked lugging a watermelon through NYC for 5 hours in new luggage we bought on Canal Street. (We ate 4 whole watermelons on our trip)

Our trip back south we had a broad reach fromt he Statue to the Atlantic at 20 knotss then another one down the coast. HIt Manesquan at 11:30 AM after leaving NYC at 7 AM and kept going. Went in Barnegat (very calm for the trecherous inlet it is) and had an amazing anchorage behind the lighthouse with 15 other sailboats. Pictureesque. Short 25 miles to Atlantic City the next day. The day after 20 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean then screaming in at 8+ knotts to Cape May with many many dolfins crisscrossing in front and swimming with us.

Dinner at the Ebbit Room (Virginia Hotel) and the next night at 410 Bank St in Cape May fattened us up for un unforgettable 40 mph+ squall line in the middle of Delaware Bay with square waves of 6-8 ft blown up in 20 minutes. Under iron genny we could only manage 1 knott headway for almost 2 hours.

Made it through the canal and anchored at sunset in outer part the Bohemia River entrance on the south side in front of a beautiful farm and a picture perfect evening and ending night to our trip. 5 Hours to the Maryland Yacht Club on Tuesday. This was a great trip for Donna for her first ocean cruising experience and would recommend the itinerary for anyone with 10-12 days and even kids.

Chef...I have a geat system for rigging the dinghy so it never swings and never makes a noise. Come over and check it out at your leisure. Davits work great.
