|paulk||... so, what was IN the cooler? We've already had our S/N friend Otter floating around in a baitbox in Vancouver (or was it Victoria?) a while back, so this had better be good!|

Brad, I noticed your post/sail...wanted to contact you
but had both business and personal obligations. Will continue in the future to work on correcting my priorities!
Happy you were able to enjoy that Great moon on the water.

The extra close full moon on the Sound must have been great.
Good for you.

I guess this sail went by with hardly a notice here on SN. Had a great solo sail back with some motoring. Got in about 3:00 AM on Saturday.
The moon was nearing a super full moon, since it's so close in it's orbit to the earth. I spotted something in the moonlight. It turned out to be a floating cooler. After fetching it, I noticed it was pretty dirty, faded but otherwise in good condition. Didn't clean it up yet, since I was getting pretty tired by the time everthing was secured.

Arrived safe in Stamford awhile ago. It was an excellent night. Light winds, sailed wing-on-wing much of the way across and up the sound. Solo. It was incredibly warm tonight. Saw a couple tugs pushing barges, but neither was near me. Kept a good watch with binoculars all the way.
The marina is empty, so I had my pick of slips. I docked on an end in the deepest water slip they have, but then move over one slip so I can tie lines off on both side of the boat. We are expecting gusts to 40 tomorrow and I don't want the boat rubbing on the fenders all day.
Plan is to work tomorrow (on my laptop) and then sail back after midnight. Looks like the front will pass by before then.
Stamford really is a good destination for me from Glen Cove. The approach is very interesting. You keep a flashing white light centered on a steady-ish red light and that takes you most of the way in, staying in the channel.
The marina's wifi is with the same provider, so my logon at the other Brewers worked here fine.
