August 7, 2009... Transit to Port Jefferson
After a rolly night in the Cold Spring Harbor anchorage, we left for our next destination, Port Jefferson. The general weather pattern for Long Island Sound (no wind in the morning and SW winds in the afternoon) changed, and we had northwest winds; favorable for our eastward trek. We were able to sail pretty much the whole way on a picture perfect sunny day. Downwind sailing - yes! Got to Port Jeff in the afternoon, had to make way for the Bridgeport ferry, but found a place to anchor near the mooring field. Soaking up the sunshine and rewarding ourselves for a sail well done. Tomorrow, exploration.
