Last Day in NYC
Today was our last day in NYC, spending it at the Rockaway Point Yacht Club with Jill and Matt. They stayed overnight last night. Today we went on a 4 hour sail and parking off the Breezy Point Beach. Had a nice time with them. They got a ride from one of the Rockaway members to the bus station and left before dinner.
This was a great place for us to visit, meet some new friends and just swap sailing stories. A lot of the members are retired and have spent many years sailing up and down the coast.
Tomorrow is our trip to Mannasquam. I think I am a little anxious about it after reading some people's account of dealing with a 6+ knot current when your boat only does 6 knots. One guy got pinned against the bridge and had to be towed off by Boats US towing. Hopefully that will not happen to us.
Pictures today are of some of the folks we met at Rockaway and a very nice sunset over Coney Island
