Seafevers BFS to Greenport and Back

Well we did some great sailing this week with only one day of needing the motor which is the best week of sailing luck i have ever had

It became apparent the weather was going to be crap on 7/25 and 7/26

As the crap weather and perfect timing of the flood tide home was setting up a sail home that may never be topped we went with it as 70 miles is a long day

We left Greenport at 6 am and had a nasty ride out to plum gut and after turning west the sled ride begin and the boat would just not go slower than 8 knots with regular surges to 12 knots and a peak speed of 13.2 knots

In a fair bit of great luck we on the mooring in Northport at 4:30 PM

Nice Tom.
Travelling SSW with a NE wind blowing 15 - 35 knots, for 8 hours.
BFS indeed.

Re: Seafevers BFS to Greenport and Back

Nice!
The tidal currents in the sound have been huge lately. We had 2-3 kts against us coming back from three mile last weekend.
Xort. if your still around tomorrow, take a dink ride in up the river to starboard. I'm on the north side of the river just before the bridge.

We've been here 4 days waiting out rains and weather. Too long! Getting underway at 5am to beat the tide eastbound. Thanks for the invite, sorry. Next time...

Re: Seafevers BFS to Greenport and Back

Hey,

That's really great.

We have some really nice winds. I left last Friday for 4 day sail with some old high school buddies. We left Mt. Sinai right after the thunderstorm left and rode the wind north to Bridgeport (Captains Cove). We had 20+ kts of wind on the port quarter and sailed out of there at 7+ kts. The next day we sailed from Bridgeport to Northport - right into a 15 SW. With a reefed main we sailed S right at the stacks, then tacked north west and eventually into Hunt. Harbor and then northport. Sunday we sailed to Port Jeff and had easterly's at 12 kts. For that sail we tacked NE to Bridgeport and then S to PJ. Finally on monday we sailed home to Mt. Sinai.

We only ran the engine to get in and out of harbors.

We sailed about 100 miles and the engine was on for maybe 20 minutes.

I hope the wind continues because tomorrow my kids and I are sailing to Mattituck.

Barry

We love Mattitck. Best kept secret and not for the faint of heart, but the anchorage is perfect. Having an "out" and not being forced to go from Port Jeff around the end of the Sound in ne day is good, especially if the current gods are not in your favor.
