We made it to New York City!


THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th — DAY 16 (Half Moon Bay Marina, Haverstraw Bay to New York City)

Although overcast and a few sprinkles during the day today, we made New York without incident.  The New York habour was incredibly busy with boats, ferries, helicopters overhead, sailboats… so the number of AIS signals on Silver Maple’s navigation system was crazy.  By 4PM, we were settled in the marina at Liberty Landing, very close to the Statue of Liberty.  Jacquelyn and David came in from Whippany, NJ and met us for dinner.
