We brought Wandering Star home, arriving yesterday. I found crew and information on this forum. The weather (two tropical depressions) threw us a few curves. We spent two days at sea, making 186 miles our first 24 hours (with the current) then went ICW to avoid a forecast 40 knot NE. Five days of heavy rain and high winds saw us at Charleston, where we went out to sea again. Another forecast of adverse conditions brought by the second low brought us closer in, but we stayed at sea. This time the challenge was thick fog and light wind. Our best day was passing Hatteras (far off) with flying fish, dolphins and petrels. The next day we had to divert to avoid naval gunfire, but saw a big shark. After four days at sea we made Cape May to refuel. The next day we continued alongshore through NY Harbor to Mount Sinai (34 hours). We sailed in strong and light breezes, the boat performing well. We navigated the Ditch in rain, fog and wind. Fourteen days underway brought only three sunny ones. The crew was fun, hardworking, and dedicated.
