Sailing From New York down to Chesapeake Bay

This short video shows our sail from New York to Chesapeake Bay. We decided to do a series of day hops calling in at Atlantic City and Cape May, before heading up Delaware Bay and through the C&D Canal to Chesapeake Bay. We spent a delightful night in a quiet anchorage in Sassafras River before heading off to Baltimore to see Dee’s nephew Adam who lives there.

New York, New York

This is a video of our time in New York with Alex and Sophie. Our plan of attack for New York was to anchor in Port Washington and take the local train into Penn Station. We needed to allow 40 minutes for the dinghy ride and walk up to the train station. Then it was a 50 minute direct train into NYC. Later we transmitted the East River and anchored at the Statue of Liberty for a night before moving around to Sheepshead Bay where we took a $40 a night mooring, which included a launch service. From here we explored Coney Island and took the subway into the City.
