July 1: Home Bound

Posted on: July 1, 2021

We left New York City on Sunday afternoon and headed offshore, around Nantucket Shoals, and then straight north.

We were averaging 10kts on our first day out of the city! Around 1 a.m. we were getting some heavy gusts and had to strike the main and jib sails in very wet, noisy, and dark conditions. At that point, we were still cruising 6kts under just the fore and staysail.

Later that day, we stopped for a fun day of small boat sailing and swimming and are now on the homestretch into Boothbay Harbor.
