A nice sail in Raritan Bay

I had a nice sail yestarday in Raritan Bay. Light winds made for a nice relaxing stress-free slow sail. I had to divert my course to get a closer look at the following ship entering the bay.

It was, and any day on the water is a good day for sure.

Agreed. Last couple of times I've been out the breeze has been so light that the sailing itself has been little fun. But I've seen dolphins and sunsets and just enjoyed the peace.

Red, I'm a member of the Richmond County Yacht Club and have a mooring at Great Kills Harbor. I've visited KYC many times and am also a member of the Raritan Bay Power Squadron that meets there during the year.
