Alice and I just got home after a two-part 377NM cruise.
Two weekends ago, we sailed 30 hours straight, double-handed from Perth Amboy, NJ to Greenport, NY where we left Cadence at Brewer Sterling Marina.
Last weekend we sailed to Newport, where we stayed on a mooring for 4 days. We saw the ACWS, worked from the boat, did the 4th of July thing at NYYC and sailed round Connicut (sp?) Island.
On Thursday, we passaged back West, picked up a mooring in Niantic and then onto Port Jefferson, a noisy, busy but friendly harbor.
Last night we rendezvoued with our friends Stuart and Shanna in beautiful Oyster Bay.
Home today down the East River, across NY Harbor finishing our cruise with a superb close reach home.
Amazingly Alice and I are still talking to each other.
Apologies for a dull but factual post. More interesting one to come.
