It's that time again. We left Cape Henlopen, Delaware and headed to a marina to top off fuel in Cape May, New Jersey. We anchored for a couple hours to wait for an outgoing tide....life is so much easier if you're not fighting current At 2:00 we headed north off the Jersey coast. We had perfect timing. We got to Atlantic Highlands to top up the fuel and were able to head to NYC to take advantage of the current!
Here we are headed towards Manhattan
After passing through all the really high traffic areas we turned a corner to come upon this HUGE barge and tug. We contacted him on the radio early and he requested that we pass in front of him to pass starboard to starboard ( a two whistle pass). Yikes, he was big.
I think these buildings were funded by politicians....wait for it.
Yes, they're crooked.
We always enjoy seeing the hustle and bustle of NYC and love that Freedom was doing 11.5 knots of speed with the current assist!
