Mystic River to Narragansett River

Monday, June 28.
Left the seaport with six aboard SILENT MAID after a nice oatmeal & fruit breakfast on BARNEGAT. Love that boat. Through the bridges motoring, swing and lift, then hoisted sail with the new crew Peter Seigl and Tony Diaz. Lots of discussion around the navigation table and a fresh breeze. We had a lovely reach rolling up Block Island Sound to Point Judith and then ran up river with the dinghy MAID SERVICE surfing along behind us. Jibe and jibe again kept the mainsheet and backstay crews busy. Under the Pell Bridge and on up to Melville.
