Jersey City to Stonington CT - day 1

















We set sail at 6am from Liberty Landing into the Hudson with the sun rising over Manhattan. It was early, very early, but absolutely amazing. Around the tip of Manhattan, up the East River, Hells Gate then off into the Long Island Sound. The city was quiet, the waters still, blue skies above and a big smile on my face. It was pretty slow going until the evening when the wind finally picked up and the sails were raised. We made it to Duck Island Roads in CT the first day, an 18 hour sail. I was worried I would get seasick or want off the boat, lucky me neither happened. It was a beautiful day with a gorgeous full moon rising to help us navigate the dark waters. A quick rest to get ready for day 2.
