Blooming Flowers by Sassafras River and Visiting Georgetown, Maryland

(September 11 to 16, 2016): The C & D Canal connects the Delaware Bay to the Chesapeake Bay. Both bays are huge and look like open ocean. Without the canal, it would take a long time for a ship going from Philadelphia (Delaware Bay) to Baltimore (Chesapeake Bay) or vice versa.

Cruising to Cape May from Atlantic Highlands (New York Harbor), New Jersey

(September 10, 2016): No wind! 25 Hours of motoring! Arriving in the Cape May Inlet and dropping an anchor near the Coast Guard Station, we heard unusual sound near distance. At first, I thought it was from an event on the shore. With a binocular, I searched the land and read ‘Coast Guard Training Center’ sign on the wall.

(August 31 to September 7, 2016): We were about ready to leave New York City but the tropical storm ‘Hermine’ was going to be heading our way. Funny, we came all the way up here to get out of the hurricane zone but it was going to come near us.

Sailboat Anchoring Experiences at ‘Liberty State Park Anchorage’

(August 12 to 31, 2016) During our sailing trip to New York City, we had originally planned to stay at the 79th Street Yacht Basin. (Dock Space: US$3.50/linear foot per day + US$20 Electricity per day) or drop an anchor (US$26/Day) next to the Mooring Field. Our boat was too large (47 foot) so we couldn’t use a reasonably priced mooring (US$30/Day) in 79th Street Yacht Basin.

(August 12 to 31, 2016) Entering New York Harbor by sailboat, passing the skylines of Manhattan, and visiting the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, as a naturalized US citizen, I felt as if I re-entered the new world of hope. It was like reengaging myself after a long journey at sea by crossing the ocean and seeing the Statue of Liberty as ‘The Beacon of the Hope’.

Awesome Sailing from Fort Macon (Morehead City, North Carolina) to New York Harbor

(August 8 – 11, 2016): A total of 430 miles distance (76 hours), half motoring and the rest sailing, mostly downwind like surfing. Proud ‘Bad Bunny’ did sail wonderfully, except one vang (preventer) line got broken. This line came with the boat. It might have been 24 years old as ‘Bad Bunny’ is.

It’s a boat: Review of Sailing for two Years, Back to Morehead City, North Carolina, USA

I count ‘Right Now’ more than ‘Best Memories’. However, writing this, I am flashing about beautiful memories of blue water, island people, jungles, fresh fish, and culture from the Caribbean… For last two years, we sailed down from Morehead City (North Carolina) to Stuart, Florida, then continuously sailing to Saint Martin,

Sailing to Charleston, the Cultural Capital of the South, South Carolina, USA

We left St. Helena Sound, South Carolina at 4 am to go out with the outgoing tide. Arriving in the Charleston Channel, we had the incoming tide behind us. Peaceful sailing of 56 nautical miles, we dropped the anchor at 2 pm, about 10 hours of sailing wing-on-wing with a job-pole.
