Underway to Montauk
We are underway to Montauk, NY at the end of Long Island … Left at 6am (Tuesday) with an ETA of 10am tomorrow (Wednesday). We have all our safety gear on and are happily cruising past Atlantic City right now. We will be 40 miles offshore in the midst of the trip tonight … Ems first overnight sail!
Weather forecast looks pretty good, but we’re ready if we should get a pop up squall later. There appear to be a couple of other sailboats in the neighborhood who may be doing a similar route. We will file a “float plan” on the radio at 7:45am. Finally! We get to be one of the boats saying, “underway from somewhere to somewhere” after being parked in NJ for 3 weeks. More on that in another post.
We’ll report in from Long Island!
