42° 49.466' N 70° 53.207' W 22 Jun 2015 05:30 None None None Shango is back in Newburyport. We celebrated with a wonderful gathering of local friends at Merri Mar Yacht Basin as we finished our journey.
42° 2.854' N 70° 10.956' W 19 Jun 2015 17:41 None None None On a mooring at Provincetown Marina. We were fortunate to be able to hit the tides just right through Woods Hole and the Canal and we saw 11.8 knots going through the Canal. P-town for the weekend is the next best thing to being home.
41° 32.834' N 70° 36.215' W 18 Jun 2015 00:47 None None None At a slip at the Flying Bridge in Falmouth Harbor. A wonderful reunion with Bill and Linda Zammer and their friends Gary and Janet. Up early tomorrow AM to catch a favorable current through the Cape Cod Canal.
41° 27.428' N 70° 35.801' W 16 Jun 2015 21:20 None None None In Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard, MA on a town mooring. Feels very good after a day plus of thick fog and windless rolly seas off Long Island into Vineyard Sound. We'll treat ourselves to a breakfast at The Black Dog tomorrow morning.
40° 10.385' N 72° 59.802' W 15 Jun 2015 20:44 None 6.7 56 Just about half way across the New York shipping lanes and thick fog is welcoming us back to home waters. Last night the Jersey shore provided her usual entertainment; thunder and lightening, squalls, confused seas, tug and tows, and fishing boats doing 360 degree gyrations. At least our night watches went by quickly with all the concentration. Our timing is better than expected so we may skip Block Island and head on to Tarpaulin Cove or Vineyard Haven before heading over to Falmouth to see our friend Bill Zammer.
