Out for a sail today on a fantastic day with hints of fall. Winds were not quite as advertised, but I heard not complaints from the crew.
First sight as I came out of the ramp area, a Staten Island ferry. They bring them down here for maintenance.
One of my goals for today were to check out the electronics for the upcoming fall cruise. Had both the SPOT and the new gps on hand. Still getting adjusted to the new gps.
And here is the SPOT track. Nice sail down the river, mostly at 2 or 3 knots. Very relaxing and fun.
And enjoyed the deep blue sky.
Not as many boats on the water as I would have expected, but did see this nice deadrise and a few local sailboats. The snowbirds won't be showing up for a few more weeks.
And for dinner, grilled corn with lime/cumin/chili butter, grilled gulf of mexico shrimp and local "dry" scallops grilled on rosemary stems. What a great day.
