Shanghaied in Westbrook

[This thread continues a previous thread found here: Your chance to tell me where to go - departing Montauk]


This is davidpm, I'm here in Westbrook, CT my home port. I'm on Bene505's boat, using his account. Brad is working through his list of on-board firsts.
First time is Westbrook, CT
First solo in long island sound
First time with harnes and jacklines.
First time a Bill's seafood, with 20 piece band.
And of course first time baking cookies on board.

Oh yes I'm playing hookie from work tomorrow to go to port jeff.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

If you've done Bill's, next best is Boom, at Brewer's Pilot's Point marina. Not the same atmosphere, however.

Guys, it was blowing like stink yesterday. I was down at the water in the morning, pleasant breeze. I went back about 3pm, the Sound was all ripped up, there was a dust storm in the parking lot, I went home to cook chicken soup. The soup was good.
Bene is a wild man.

hi John,

You missed them. Believe it or not, they made it to Port Jeff on Tuesday around noon (I think). Brad and I left this morning (Wednesday) around 9:00 am and sailed, then motorsailed to Sea Cliff.

I survived the trip from wesbrook to Port Jeff.

I wasn't going to go but the hatch was guarded so I couldn't leave.
