Cape May and the Delaware.

We did the beach run around Cape May and are headed past Brandywine shoal. 


Conditions are pretty typcial for the Delaware.  6 kts over ground, 4 knots wind on the bow.

    The kids made an apple galette which is now baking in the oven.  

Another tough day out here.

Atlantic City

Anna and greg have the morning watch off Atlantic City.

We have about 6kts of wind just starboard of the bow. All in all, an easy passage so far.  We were able to sail out of New York harbor and for about 5 hours down the coast last night.  At times, we made only 3-4kts, but it was great.  

Here’s the view departing New York yesterday.

We left Boston at 0430 on Thursday the 30th and had a nice trip to Onset.  Cuttyhunk was the original goal, but the sou’wester showed up and we were seeing gusts in the upper 20s even in the canal.   On top of what would have been a rough slog down Buzzards Bay, there were storms in the forecast for the evening.  Onset was a nice break.  This morning (Friday), the current starts to ebb (westbound in the Cape Cod Canal) around 10.  We’ll use that to make our way to Cuttyhunk today.  

The adults woke to tea and waffles on the griddle this morning.  We could get used to this. 
Here’s the view from Hurrah this morning.

Here’s the view this morning from the Charlestown side of Boston harbor:

The North End is to the left of the picture.  If you look hard enough, just above the radar, you can see the steeple of the Old North Church made famous by Paul Revere and the signalling, one if by land, two if by sea.  

The passage from Buzzards Bay to Boston was pretty smooth.  We had a few hours of storms, but nothing crazy and then a pleasant sail into Boston harbor.  

We’re here for a month.

Cape Cod Canal

After a calm night at Wings Cove (we decided against going over to Onset), we were up at 0330 and are now Eastbound in the Cape Cod Canal.  The railroad bridge is ahead.

Another great day out here.  Saw two huge fin back whales really close this morning.

Aiming to make Onset at slack current around 2100 and then back out into the CCC around 0330 for the flood.

Atlantic City goes on and on

We are off Atlantic city.  It looms and looms. 

Perfect sailing weather:  reaching in 12 kts.  That’s great after a busy night in the Delaware Bay.


Happy Monday.
