Brian and Tara picked me up at Laguardia the evening of June 23, after a delayed flight from Halifax via Toronto. We drove back to the Marina at Bridgeport and the next day provisioned for our voyage home. Brian and I decided to stay in cruising mode and not push to hard and do day trips except for the crossing from Cape Cod to Nova Scotia. In fact we weren't sure from which port we might cross from, being open to sailing further up the coast and perhaps crossing from somewhere in Maine if conditions were not favorable for our planned crossing from Cape Cod.
The trip turned out to be 725 knotical miles, or 800 statute miles. Most of our day trips were between 60 and 80 miles and the Gulf of Maine crossing was 225 miles.
Special thanks to my good friend Brian Flanagan. His nautical knowledge and good common sense made the trip a pleasure. Besides being a great guy he is a superb cook and has thoughtful insights into just about any subject from politics to diesel mechanics. It was a privilege to have have him on board.
