FL to CT Day 31
Chesapeake City, MD to Atlantic City, NJ
We left Chesapeake City. MD this morning at 0630... had to back out as it was not deep enough for us to turn around at the dock... moved bow about 6 feet off dock and it was on the bottom... so we plowed through stern first through the mud back out to the C&D Canal.
Initially we had current against us till we reached the Delaware River and then we picked up to over 9 knots for a couple of hours... hjad current switch against us off the Cohansey River and picked it up again just before Cape May... then we had current with us all the way to Atlantic City.
Seas were about 4 feet initially when we turned north from the Cape May Inlet into the Atlantic Ocean. We had a 10-15 knot WSW wind and the 4 foot seas were not from the wind but a SE swell with a 10-12 second period... not a bad ride and we had current pushing us at 8 knots so we opted to continue onto Atlantic City... 4 hour ETA.
About an hour or so in the winds switched to SE at 15-20 knots and soon the swell increased to 6 feet with some real whoppers every now and then... was nothing dangerous but changed the quality of the ride to a bit uncomfortable.
We arrived to the Atlantic City, NJ and docked at our typical location... Gardener Basin. We were secure at the dock at 2030. N39°22.579', W074°25.272'
. We traveled for 14 hours covering 99.7 nautical miles averaging 7.1 knots.
