We left Pilots Point Westbrook CT on Friday Afternoon we Anchored Friday Night in Orient bay saw a great Sunset and Moonrise. There was a seal hanging by the boat until Sunset. Saturday morning we went and picked up a mooring at Dering habor for the next 2 days did some day sailing around Shelter Island on Sunday spent some time in West Neck Harbor on Sunday Afternoon then headed back to Westbrook on Monday. Not much wind going home had to motor. What a traffic jam coming back through the gut on Monday..... Had some good friends with us who came along in there boat.

flyingwelshman will become famous soon enough
Spent Saturday diving the wrecks off Hope Island (Marquette & Lottie Wolf)and the Mapledawn off Christian Island. Used a pontoon boat to get around as it was dead calm.
Sunday we motored our boat to Wasaga Beach (about 35 nM). Took 8 hours! When we arrived my gashole buddy had already been there for 5 hours. We rafted up with him; had dinner; watched the fireworks; then went to bed.
We left first thing the next morning and spent 7 hours getting home. We tried to sail a couple of times but the wind was just teasing us. Great days on the water - but no sailing.

I did a very similar trip last month. (minus the seal)

tweitz,
read your previous post and had the same thought. I am sure we passed each other, seems like alot of sailnetters were out and about this area over the weekend. Yes, sunday was pretty rough sailing over to 3 mile Harbor but Monday sure made up for it. What kind of boat do you sail? Perhaps I will recall seeing her or see you about there in the future. I sail a Freedom 33 Cat Ketch.
JoeAbb, I too enjoyed that wonderful sunset and moonrise from where I was Fri at Greenport and a repeat of it on Sunday night at Three mile Harbor. I must have passed out early Saturday night because I don't recall it .It is nice that such a simple thing can bring so much satisfaction. Rick

midnight sailor --
We sail a Beneteau 323 named Gossamer Wings -- big letters on the side, easy to spot. We will keep an eye out for you the rest of the season. Can't believe I am already thinking winter storage dates.
