Another Passage Complete

Liberty Landing State Park, NJ
40 41.760 N 074 03.854 W

Well, here we are behind The Statue Of Libery, 48 hours after exiting The Chesapeake at the Bridge-Tunnel.   The trip was boring.  We had to motor-sail all but 6 hours of the passage.  I guess that's what the weather is expected to be mid-June.  

Now, we have to face The Hudson.  Our timing with respect to tides is not the best.   Right here, the slack before flood tide is at 4:30 AM and 4:30 PM, neither one is a good time to leave.  I think we'll try the AM one.

Friday is supposed to bring heavy rain.  That would not be a good day to work on the mast.  Maybe Saturday, if the marina works on Saturdays.  Otherwise, Monday.

Our anchorage behind Lady Liberty.  Note the new WTC building at ground zero in the background.
