Senior Moment is now 'home'.
Glad to hear that you had some wind for your delivery and that your daughter was crewing for you. Maiden voyages can be fun if a bit harrowing but you had plenty of wind even if it was right on the nose.
I thought of you when I got down to the beach on Lloyd Neck with my wife around 1300. Sailboats were scudding about and enjoying the SW breeze which later built to 20+ where I was. I was looking for your boat heading west and south but I guessed that I got down to the beach to late to watch you pass by. Since I don't know what the boat looked like and did not have binoculars I could only speculate as so many sailboats headed northwest towards Stamford.
My only regret was that I did not get to take my own Lightning 19' out in the freshening wind of the afternoon as we awaited my sister coming home to her house there. The Lightning is more of a sailing dinghy and racing boat and would have been a very exciting ride which was not in the cards for us. We had a nice swim in the Sound though. Not many jellyfish yet.
Glad to hear that you made it 'home' with "Senior Moment".
