Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

I should add that my wife does not see well at night, and assumes no one else
does either, so it is best for my sanity not to arrive after dark.

Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

Thursday 7:15 departed at Utsch's in Cape May. Wind gauge read 20 +/- knots, so, Reefed head sail for most of day. The afternoon was calmer. We arrived at Absecon inlet at 13:00, decided to continue to Barnegat. Arrive at inlet at 17:00. No trouble with inlet; it is clearly marked. Little is open in the area and our heat doesn't work on the battery, so we are camping. Total trip length was 65nm.

Great run....Good to hear you are safe and sound. Thats one of my favorite anchorages.

Easy run up the rest of the coast tomroow.

Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

Finished up last evening. Started inside Barnegat Inlet at 0700 with a few fishing boats. As we were exiting the inlet, my wife heard a strange noise from the engine. A minute later when the overheat alarm went off, it became apparent that the water pump/alternator belt had broken. We opened up the jib about 1/2 way and I got out the tools. About 20 minutes later, all was fixed. ( Thank you Baden Powell.)

Wind was reading about 15 from the north west for the northbound part of the trip and the seas were calm. It was a bit warmer as well. We had the sails up for the northbound portion of the trip.

Our First sight of the freedom tower was at 1200 from Shark River. Turned the hook at 1500 against an estimated 2 kts current and headwind. Dropped the sails and motored in as we readied for landing. Arrived at our mooring at 1700. This leg was about 58nm.

My craigslist dinghy did not perform well. The seam which I glued on the bow came undone and there were a couple inches of water in the stern. (It was ok when it was just me and the bow was out of the water, once loaded, it was another story. ) The craigslist outboard did just fine once coaxed with a little starting fluid. Together they did their job, but I got what I paid for, no complaints. (For my daughter, this was the final icing on the cake - she did not want to go on this trip. Her main objection was the lack of decent showers.)

Arriving on the beach was very emotional as I got to see the Sandy devastation from another viewpoint.

It's a bit strange being the only ship in a 300 ball mooring field, but, I guess it is the first sign of normalcy after the storm.

Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

welcome home.. glad you had good safe run. The Jersey Coast can be a treacherous one. It is mostly benign waters.. but the lack of safe ports has put more than one boat into big trouble

Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

Great write up Ed. Where did you actually end up mooring at the end of this last stretch?

Not too close.
We are moored at Raritan Yacht Club in Perth Amboy.

( And we used to winter at Brown's, right next to Morgan Marina. Incidentally, my old boat was found up stream on the edge of Morgan's property after Sandy, still tied to the dock.)

ha ..It was a 50/50 guess. Welcome Home. Morgan took a big hit, Viking looks like they're done. Any progress at RYC ? I've heard that the lockers and the deck were damaged
