Thanks SD. Cam sent me a PM also.. looked up the incident on the CG site.
coastal sailing must be way faster then river sailing! LOL

My friends made it from Marion, Mass to Norfolk, VA in about three-and-a-half days, with a night stop in Port Jefferson, NY. So getting down to the Gulf Stream from NY in six isn't that tough.

OMG! I read and i'm stunned! Glad they survived!
I can't help but wonder about the dates.. they made it from NY on the 2nd to the Gulf Stream on the 8th? in that short a time? Sure would like to hear the speculation on this one! Did the weather go freakish or was the trip planned badly?
I don't know where to look for the CG reports on such a rescue either.

Did you guys read Ashleys post on her blog from November 8th? They were in a bad storm and had to be rescued by the coast guard.
Glad you guys are ok!

|SPONGE||I read Motion of the Ocean also and it was a fantastic read. I alughed out loud on several occasions and she is young too which makes it a little more accessible and easy to see yourself in her shoes.|

Re: lady cruisers
I saw your post here on SailNet and your user name sounded familar and I said it to my husband and he reminded me that we met you at the 79th Street Boat Basin in NYC about 3 weeeks ago! We were the couple with the two black and white dogs and we talked for a bit while we were doing laundry.
How are you? When are you headed on your circumnavigation? We are currently in Deltaville, VA, 1 day away from the AICW, thank god!
Anyway good luck on your trip! We are headed to FL for a bit so maybe we will see you somewhere along the way.
Take Care, Nicole

I am not a Lady but getting closer to becoming one.
(Wo)man - just do it.
If the social (ma, pa, friends, dog, church) issues bother you more than the sea matters then perhaps try for some way of visiting them often and discuss the matter in advance with the captain.
Sailing-wise the circumnavigation is easy, but beware of emotional pitfalls.

I'd agree that Tania's book is a good tale and inspiring; I don't have any issues about it being poorly written.
In fact, I just reread it last week. I met Tania years ago at Strictly Sail Chicago and was moved to buy the book way back then.
As a writer myself, I resist any temptation to analyze anything I'm reading for knowledge and enjoyment. If there are flaws in her presentation, the story itself more than compensates for them.
