Our original plans would have had us sailing by Stamford around now and heading to the Chesapeake. This is a picture of Eric helping us to get out of here so we can catch up to our plans. For those of you who think our trip is doomed, note that Eric messed up his ankle after he started working on First Edition, and missed a week of work (not helpful to our cause but probably more troublesome to Eric than to us!). His injury was not incurred on First Edition, but on Alliance, another boat struck by lightning.
We are hoping to exit here by this weekend, much later than we had hoped. We will spend a few weeks at City Island Yacht Club while we have annual physicals and celebrate Rosh Hashanah with family and friends. Then we will boogey down to the Chesapeake.
