FL to CT Day 4
Layover Chesapeake City, MD
We had a layover day in Chesapeake City to allow us time to visit with our friends Jim and Cathy Fisher... they drove from the Baltimore area. We had a very nice lunch and visit with them aboard SAILS. It was great to see them!

CT to FL Day 3
Atlantic City, NJ to Chesapeake City, MD
Departed Atlantic City at 0600 approximately 45 minutes before sunrise. The Atlantic was almost flat calm with only a small easterly swell.

We passed our first boat heading south in Cape May, NJ... prior to this we have only seen local fishermen. They looked so cold bundled in what looked like 20 layers of clothes... can't imagine doing this... the pilothouse has sure spoiled us.... :)

We had current against us most of the day averaging around 6 knots until we reached the Cohansey River area on Delaware Bay where we started to see a boost in speed.... reaching 8.5 knots by the time we reached the C&D Canal. But of course the minute we turned into the Canal the brakes came on... barely making 5 knots the rest of the way to our destination for the day... Chesapeake City, MD.

We arrived at approximately 2115. There was a catamaran sailboat at the town docks docks... boat 2 heading south. We docked behind them and were secure at the docks at 2130. The new town docks are very nice!

Our location for the night is N39?31.626', W075?48.670'. We traveled today for 15 hours covering 99.6 nautical miles averaging 6.6 knots.

CT to FL Day 2
Layover in Atlantic City, NJ
We stayed at the dock today waiting on weather... The winds howled all night from 20 to 30 knots out of the west and were forecast to continue all day today... and they did.

This would not of affected us for the trip from Atlantic City, NJ to Cape May, NJ... however, Delaware Bay would of been nasty... forecast for 3-5 foot seas... Wednesday the winds look good for both offshore and Delaware Bay and we will leave Atlantic City in the morning.
