CT to NC Day 4
Atlantic City, NJ to Greenwich, NJ
We departed Atlantic City this morning at 0730... weather forecast WNW winds less than 5 knots with seas 2 ft or less in a SE swell 9 second period.
Once out of the inlet and into the Atlantic the conditions were nto exactly as forecast but improved as we headed toward Cape May, NJ. Best part was that we were seeing a 1 knot boost in speed from current... running at 7.5 knots.
We had planned to stop in Cape May but with the boost in speed we arraived too early in the day to stop... we decided to continue on toward Chesapeake City and stop for the night in the Cohansey River.
We had the boost in speed was almost the entire day... lost it when we turned into the Cohansey River and had a strong outbound current against us that slowed us to 6 knots for the next 3 miles to our destination for the night.
We arrived to Hancock's Harbor Marina at approximately 1800 and were securely docked at 1815. Our position tonight is N39°22.755', W075°21.307'
. We traveled today for 10 hours and 45 minutes covering 74 nautical mile averaging 6.9 knots.
