Block Island to Cape May

We spent a day in Cape May, socked in by inclement weather, then headed out at noon the next day for a passage to Cape May. We spent the first day and night motor-sailing nicely along the southern coast of Long Island. It took us nearly the entire next day to cross the mouth of New York Harbor. The winds were on our nose and opposed the incoming swells, creating waves that smacked into the bow, cutting our speed by half. But we were along the Jersey shore before dusk, and made our way south during the second night, reaching Cape May at dawn. We had a good wind just before our landfall, which made for nice sailing. Since I blogged a bunch of Cape May pictures when we last were here, I’ll just leave you with a picture of a beautiful sunrise at the Cape May anchorage.
