"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Orient Point, NY

>> Wednesday, April 30, 2014

The Harvey Gamage, currently anchored in the safe harbor of Orient Point on the east end of Long Island, NY, is waiting out weather before heading up the river to Mystic, CT. After rounding a becalmed Cape Hatteras, students and crew experienced heavier wind and seas from the NE as we tried to beat to weather around Montauk Point, as well as pelting rain and cold temperatures. Waves constantly swept the deck but the entire crew's persistence and skill prevailed in the end. Though there are only 20 short nautical miles to Mystic, it will be nice to not fight the weather, if only for one night!
