tweitz midnight sailor --
We sail a Beneteau 323 named Gossamer Wings -- big letters on the side, easy to spot. We will keep an eye out for you the rest of the season. Can't believe I am already thinking winter storage dates.

midnightsailor tweitz,
read your previous post and had the same thought. I am sure we passed each other, seems like alot of sailnetters were out and about this area over the weekend. Yes, sunday was pretty rough sailing over to 3 mile Harbor but Monday sure made up for it. What kind of boat do you sail? Perhaps I will recall seeing her or see you about there in the future. I sail a Freedom 33 Cat Ketch.
JoeAbb, I too enjoyed that wonderful sunset and moonrise from where I was Fri at Greenport and a repeat of it on Sunday night at Three mile Harbor. I must have passed out early Saturday night because I don't recall it .It is nice that such a simple thing can bring so much satisfaction. Rick

I did a very similar trip last month. (minus the seal)

flyingwelshman Spent Saturday diving the wrecks off Hope Island (Marquette & Lottie Wolf)and the Mapledawn off Christian Island. Used a pontoon boat to get around as it was dead calm.
Sunday we motored our boat to Wasaga Beach (about 35 nM). Took 8 hours! When we arrived my gashole buddy had already been there for 5 hours. We rafted up with him; had dinner; watched the fireworks; then went to bed.
We left first thing the next morning and spent 7 hours getting home. We tried to sail a couple of times but the wind was just teasing us. Great days on the water - but no sailing.

sahara We went the opposite direction to PaulK. Left upper Narragansett Bay thursday and motored out of the bay in no wind, then the breeze came up enough to sail to Cuttyhunk. Steaks on the grill.

Friday was a lovely beat up Buzzards Bay, spent the night anchored in Pocasset.

Saturday we ran thru the CC canal in the morning, and arrived Provincetown early afternoon. I had downloaded a GRIB indicating strong headwinds for 24 hours, beginning that night, so we picked up a mooring in P-town and I shopped for my daughter's birthday. Saturday night the expected NE winds arrived - Paulk was going the right direction - and we spent Sunday on the mooring, walking ashore and reading.

Monday we left at first light, saw lots of whales the first 3-4 hours, sailed overnight and made landfall Tuesday at Frenchboro and went ashore for a lobster roll for lunch. We then ran up to Northeast Harbor, rented bikes and had time for a beautiful ride on the carriage roads of Acadia National Park.

Sadly, that's the end of my season. Wednesday morning I left the boat at the yard for hauling and winter storage.

Ponce de Leon Inlet from Canaveral Locks.

My fiancee and I sailed up to Ponce Inlet From Canaveral Locks and back over the weekend, enjoying the FL afternoon storms appear and dissapate from a distance, 4 nm offshore. The next day we visited the lighthouse and learned that it used to be called Mosquito Inlet, though from anchoring the previous night I believe that it should have been called No-See-Um or Midge Inlet. We docked that night, enjoyed the nightlife and slept in midge-free AC. The sail/motor back was on the ICW, which was relaxing. It was a very therapeutic vacation.

billsull I got a late start (1600) on Sunday and motored down the Connecticut River with grand plans for an overnight in Coecles Harbor, but the wind was right on the nose for sailing across Long Island Sound to Plum Gut, so I hung a right and had a quick and lumpy sail downwind under jib and jigger to Duck Island. By 1930 I was anchored behind Duck Island and enjoyed a nice night listening to the wind in the rigging.

On Labor Day morning, after several unsuccessful attempts to extract myself from a warm berth, I called my wife and arranged to pick her up at Brewer's Pilots Point marina, which is a half mile north of Duck Island and only three miles from our house. After a nice lunch at Brewer's restaurant overlooking the docks, we left for home. It was a great sail back to the mouth of the river, making lazy tacks to keep the sun in the cockpit and letting the current do most of the work. After an hour of motoring up the river, we were back on the mooring. I knew my wife had a good time because I didn't have to debate the merits of traveling for 5 hours in a sailboat to reach the same place we could have driven the car to in about 15 minutes!

We're looking forward to a nice fall on the Sound.

tweitz Midnight Sailor --
We must have passed each other at some point, since I started in Three Mile Harbor and then went to Coecles. You were right about Sunday, unusually rough for Gardiner's Bay.
