Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

Well we are on my old stomping grounds Atlantic City, where I worked for 18 yeas. We were delayed on leaving till 7 by the front coming through with TStorms. As we headed out Cape May inlet we were met with 15 knot winds from due north....right on the nose. Any he of achieving Barnegat Inlet went out the window. Besides its an unforgiving inlet with any northern component of wind as it is flanked by shoals extending 3/4 mile seaward on the north side jetty. These cause ocean swells (today 6 to8 ft) to ride up under oppression from the sudden depth to shallows and break into white water crossing the channel perpendicularly making progress under sailboat power dangerous as the waves are faster than the boats.

So we beat our way north for 8+ hours making 30 miles. Grrrrrrrrr.anyway. We had a good dinner at the Golden Nugget as I called an old friend who is the Exec Chef here for a comp to their northern Italian restaurant. The fresh swordfish we bought in Cape May will have to wait for the grill till tomorrow, so it s marinating in garlic,sake and marin .

Tomorrow is another day with the winds slowly subsiding so the goals are Atlantic Highlans Horseshoe Cove (long shot at 78 miles), Manesquan (44 miles but the anchorages their suck even though the inlet is quite good), and Barnegat (28 miles).

Getting ready to round Sandy Hook and anchor for the evening. We had a great sail up the Jersey coast playing Springstien all day. Too dark to see any nudity t the Hook . Tomorrow is our rocket ride up he East River though Hell Gate. Last time through there we hit13.4 kknotts SOG. Is quite the thrill,

You two are making steady progress north. Well done!
It is not so easy to tell from the NDBC buoy data how your winds were, except perhaps that you did not have too much wind and maybe windier early this morning.
Hope you have a great ride up the East River early tomorrow morning.

We are also on a mooring at AH....snuck in after 10 expecting to anchor but saw an empty ball an took it figuring no one would mind. We are pretty bet as we left Atlantic City at 6AM.
Made a nice fresh Ritz cracker crusted swordfish dinner with lemon beurre blancand fresh Jersey tomatoes buffalo mozzarella under way off of Brielle. Ate while auto-Otto steered.
My wife had th helm for 4 hours today. I was impressed.

Lots of blinking lights coming around the Sandy Hook at 9:30 Pm. Radar lit up with blips and ships moving everywhere. I have a headache. Having a glass of Pinot noir and heading to sleep. 6AM wke up call.
Ass

Waving to Tempet hahahs

AH=Atlantic Highlands

Dave,

We were on standby to meet up with you in Barnegat, but it looks like the weather didn't cooperate. We'll catch you one of these days as you're passing through Jersey.

Have fun on the rest of your trip! Fair winds, etc.

Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

Sorry Broken,

That's Atlantic Highlands. Hump of raised land right before Sandy Hook. You have to go around the hook to get to it. Has a nice breakwater and moorings. High speed ferry for lower Manhattan, yacht club transient moorings, and a place to anchor. There is also Horse Gcove to anchor in aroung the Hook, but you have to watch out for fish traps. Not a real safe place to go in after dark..

This AM we left at 6 AM and looked or Tempest to wake him up. Thought we saw him moored by the breakwater.

Dave

We are now on the LI Sound having come up the East River on a fairly beneign day. The Staten Island Ferry Terminal was abuzz and the seaplanes landing beside us by 40thtreet was neat. The UNlookedcleanedup from the last time we came this way. We hit speeds of 12.4 though Hell Gate and pretty much averages 9-10 SOG up the East River. Helm was squirrelly when it got over 10. We are off of Hempstead Bay making for Port Jefferson and the Seatsuket Yacht Club mooring. PJ is a neat eclectic town. Great stop over for staging the run to Greenport.

Love to see the report, Chef. Have to say, it sounds exhausting. I've considered a Fall trip to the Chessy, as we have friends down your way. However, if we didn't go outside (down and back), it may be too much without a few weeks to do it. I know you've done both. Had a friend make Annapolis to Newport in 48 hrs flat this summer. Perfect conditions the whole way outside.

Safe passage.
