Sailed SILENT MAID up Long Island Sound today for a bit after motoring through Hell's Gate . Came all the way driving from the Battery, under the Brooklyn Bridge. All the cable for that bridge was made about 10 miles from my house in NJ. The slag from the furnaces still lines the bank of the River. We were chased by a storm. Three of us on board, so I got to drive a lot, while the guys were busy with reefs (we put three in before they doused the sail) It was so fun. We are rafted up with BARNEGAT now in the cove. It stopped raining.
