Well I finished the first “leg” of my journey. I’m now in Gloucester Point, VA, Chesapeake Bay.I left New York on Monday morning around 10 am, cloudy at first then a nice sunny day with a light SE breeze.I motor sailed down the Jersey shore and almost pulled into Atlantic City at around 11 pm, but at dusk the wind had changed to 10 to 15 kts out of the NE, so it was a perfect wind to sail. That was until the wind built to 20 to 25 kts around 5 am and at that point the next safe inlet was Ocean City, MD where I pulled into at around 10 am after being at the helm for five hours because my auto pilot couldn’t keep up with the 7-8 ft following seas.The strong NE wind was forecasted to last until Wednesday night but later forecasts predicted lasting through the weekend.So I was stuck in OceanCity where I was one out of only three sail boats – the rest were sport fish, 250 in my marina alone.After resting for a couple days I set out on Thursday for Chesapeake Bay in 20 to 25 kt NNE winds and 6-8 ft seas.Once I motored through about a mile of 10 foot breakers to get out of the inlet area, it was actually a relatively comfortable sail all the way to the entrance to Chesapeake Bay at around 11:30 pm where I had to turn into the wind and motor against both the wind and the 2 kt tide current.I would have had to wait about three hours for the current to change direction, so I motored at around four kts up the Chesapeake. I pulled into the marina at about 6 am and then took a long needed nap… I will be leaving my boat here until beginning of October and going to Annapolis Boat Show.My next destination will be Charleston, SC if anyone is interested in crewing for about a week in mid October.I will be flying home on Sunday and planning to stay through Louie’s Last Regatta Sept. 26!
