Hi Minnewaska, yes, In Season 2 we explore New York City, then sail up the East River on through Hell's Gate and anchor at City Island, then sail through Long Island Sound stopping at Mount Sinai where we go a tour of Brookhaven Labs, then to the Great Salt Pond in Block Island, then to Newport, then through Buzzards Bay to Onset, MA, and through the Cape Cod canal to Boston and Gloucester. Episode 1 publishes on November 4th and then we hope to publish new Season 2 episodes every Tuesday and Thursday through the Winter. We just settled down for the Winter in Ireland we finally have time to edit. It's about time.You can say that again.
Looking forward to it. I see you were in several of my stomping grounds over the past decades, from NYC to Newport.
Hi Minnewaska, I've received a bunch of comments from people who say that they really like the longer videos, but then also a bunch of comments from people who say that they prefer the shorter "5 minute" videos (like broke sailor's comment above in this thread.)Great to have the season start. 5 min vid to show 6 miles of motoring is a slow start man. Must not have wanted to shock the system.
Yup, hard to imagine a more miserable anchorage, than right in front of the Statue of Liberty... And, even if you were outside of the security zone, I would imagine you'd still attract - repeatedly - the interest of the numerous NYC police craft patrolling the harbor...DrakeParagon: S2E01 A Decidedly Different View - YouTube
After raising anchor from the Statue of Liberty, Drake and Monique motor Paragon up the Hudson river to the 79th Street Boat Basin Marina.
It took us almost 2 years to get from North Carolina to Ireland. 3 weeks in NYC, 3 weeks in Boston, 3 weeks in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, 2 months in Greenland, 9 months in Iceland, 3 months in the Faroe Islands, a month in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and about 7000 nautical miles of offshore sailing.Now we're talking. Eldridges, considering how to get to shore, etc. Just enough cruising/sailing. However, at this clip, I can't imagine how long it's going to take to get to Ireland.
