chef2sail We did catch a glimpse of her. Quite a sight. Loved sailing in Gardiniers Bay and the way over to Newport. Hit the "Gut" on an awful afternoon with the tide, but opposed by 25+ knott winds on the beat to Sag Harbor. Needless to say we were worn out when we arrived at the Sag harbor Yacht Club.

tweitz Great story. I am glad you enjoyed our home waters. Did you by any chance catch a look at Hyperion, which was floating not far from Sag Harbor while you were there. It made most of the other megayachts look small.

chef2sail OK time to finish the saga,

When last seen Haleakula was in Hihgh Bar Yacht Club behind Barnagat Light house. While there we found that our ss pip going into the muffler had brokem and needed to get it repaired. In addition I replaced the raw water pump as it had begun to leak.

We ran out of time to bring her home as I had to get back to work so we had a friend take her from Barnegat back to the Maryland Yacht Club on Tuesday.

This was certainly a great trip for Donna and I. We got to spend three days in Newport, 2 in Sag Harbor, with days in Port Jefferson, Northport, Copnneticut River, Atlantic Highklands, New York (Jersey City), Cape May and Barnegat Light. Even though we fell short of the original dstination (Marthas Vineyard) by 40 miles in retrospect that was a long stretch and we wouldnt have had as much time to relax and see the areas we stopped in. Sorry I didnt get to meet up with Saildog or BarryL.

We have many new stories (especially the Plum Gut experience and fighting a thunderstorm with 40 knot ustained in Barnegat Inlet), and saw many great new places by sea. Best of all my wife has gained a tremendous amount of experience on the boat which can really only be obtained by sustained days on her.

We have lots of pictures I would like to post, but not sure how to do it in bulk. Chef, maybe you could PM me to let me know how you did your itinerary so well from your trip south in the Chesapeake.

It will be nice to anchor next weekend without considering tide or current considerations.

Glad to be back safe and sound with a new perspective on my boat and the places we have traveled to.

Dave

She and we arrived home

chef2sail Spending the night in the High Point Yacht Club behind Barnegat Lighthouse after a day in the ocean from Sandy Hook through Barnegat inlet at its worst. Steady 20 knott winds on our bow again for the whole trip. Seas 5-8 feet, but Haleakula handled it well averaging 65 knots on a motor sail down to here. The inlet was nuts with a 35 knott wind out of the southwest washing rollers acoss it. Redeeming fact was that wind and tide were together. Severe T storms predicted caused us to forgo our usual anchorage as it was exposed to the west winds. Tomorrow its Cape May.

chef2sail Can feel the heat again. We are on a mooring at Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club after anchoring behind Sandy Hook in30. Knott winds. This has been a vacation of high winds and mooring balls. Tomorrow is either Barneget or Atlantic City if really lucky.

wwilson …This place [Newport] truly is the sailing capital of the east.

Yeah; our assessment as well. Annapolis is no slouch, but whatever publicist they hired to craft that particular slogan had not yet toddled off to Newport in his big BMW.

...Moored in Conneticut River with a 4 knot current ripping by.

Essex after all? Hope you made it to the Griswald Inn.

Donna took five tries to get the pennant.

She's not going to want to see that published in SailNet Chef! And, Oh by the way, how come she couldn't reach the painter, huh Dave?

...Made only 50 miles as we had 20 on the bow all day...

Long trips always make for more diesel hours than you can stand. Unless, of course, you sailed all day in 20 on the nose!? Hope you are getting the best of the Wx and having a great time. The heat is back on down here after 4-5 days with the pilot light blown out!

Tonight we are anchored in Northport a familar stop and favorite one for us. Last lobster roll of the trip. Tomorrow is a ride with the tide at over11 knots (no exageration as we did a photogrshed 13.4 last. Year ) down the East River and out NY bay past Sandy Hook . Back to Joisey for the Jersey boy.

CalebD Glad to hear you had good gastronomic experiences in Sagg. The New Yawkuhs who frequent the 'Hamptons' tend to pretend that they have sophisticated palates. Some do and some don't. I have enjoyed the American Hotel before which is why I recommended it. Perhaps I am not so sophisticated after all.
Glad to hear that you enjoyed Sag Harbor in you 'little' boat though. I know how crowded with mega-yachts that place can get.
