Hi everyone we made Norfolk virginia Thursday later in the afternoon. We did a non stop from NYC. We had good luck getting through the harbour in New York. It was a tiring trip, with mostly either no wind, or lots of wind on the nose. Ah well such is sailing it seems.
Our good friend, David crewed and I can say he is excellent crew, filling in my spot on the watch rotor at night, particularily when I became sea sick for the first time in my life. I suspect it was largely a case of nerves and overtired. In any case we made it here safe and sound. Lots of large vessels here, hope to get some chores done tomorrow, and possibly some sight seeing before moving along again.
Will add more tomorrow after some uninterrupted sleep.

Hi guys - you're back on track. From here down the ICW it should get easier. Have you bought towing insurance, possibly through Boat US? We're still at Bock Marine, currently painting our topsides. We expect to be here another 2 weeks at least. We hope to link up with you when you pass by.
