Sandy Hook to American Yacht Club

Somehow I had imagined an entirely different day for our arrival in New York.  But, you take what you get, and it’s very difficult for any weather to dampen our excitement as we concluded the first giant phase of our trip. 
With a Summer of friends, racing, and cruising ahead of us, it’s great to be able to say that we’ve made it here safely, AND we are both still talking to one another!!

Some pictures from today’s journey….
