Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?

I saw some horrific pictures taken by someone at RYC post-Sandy on the web. Condolences offered.
I also knew a couple who sailed a J-30 there named Terry & Michael L.
Hope your season comes together there at RYC.

My boat is 25 miles up the Hudson but conditions were also pretty horrific there too.

Thanks!

At lunch today, I heard that vikings was sold; It was literally flattened.

All the ground level buildings and docks at RYC were swept away with the exception of the cupola. Most of the boat and building remains have been removed. The new docks and pilings should start going in shortly. All hope that they will be functional by the official opening day.

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?

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?

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.

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.
