On the plus side I'm going to have a great view of the fireworks and I can't see how it could get rough here.
Safe Travels Don....maybe we can catch up on the return trip . I should be back sailing by then hopefully.

Delaware River Trip Sucks......hit the end of the Canal 2 hours before the CURRENT changes and you zip on down. Unless you have big wind motor sail to achieve the best speed. Delaware Bay in the afternoon gets pretty rough, one of the worst places Iíve sailed. Shallow, long fetch, short interval on waves. We call them Delaware square waves
