The leg from Cape May back to Annapolis was an interesting one - Up the narrow shipping channel of the Delaware River at night, with channel lights that weren't on the charts and nuns that were on the charts, but no where to be seen; then across the C&D and meeting a huge car carrier coming around the bend at 0200; then down the familiar Chesapeake Bay, complete with a final perfect close reach home.
What a great trip! Well organized by the World Cruising Club and Andy, Mia and Isabelle; very competent crew that knew their sailing and safety, who all pitched in and did what was needed and who were fun to be around; and provisioning that was unbelievable - we ate like kings and the only hard part was deciding what wonderful dish to have for dinner - "tonight let's have Asian Pork with broccoli and basmati rice".
So many firsts - my first night sail, first time out of the Bay and on the Atlantic, first time across the C&D Canal, first time to arrange experienced crew to join the passage... Memories for a lifetime and inspiration and confidence to sail even more and farther! Thanks to all.
