Reedville to Cape Charles

We got up at sunrise and set out for Cape Charles.  It was much calmer and the wind was 10 kts from the NW.  We motor sailed the six hours to Cape Charles.  There was a good bit of ship traffic and I enjoyed playing with the AIS feature on the new Standard Horizon 2150.

We bought a white one, but I don't have a photo of it.
At one point we were crossing the channel from west to east, with ships both north and south bound.  I hailed them by name on channel 13, and from the AIS data knew to avoid crossing until two of the three passed.

I didn't take any photos, but will get one of the boat in the slip in Cape Charles on the next post.

We arrived in Cape Charles about 1:30pm and got settled in on the floating dock in the harbor.

We spent the evening with Dora and Mike at a pre-election party.  The food and company were great!

I did not start the heater before we left for the party.  It took about an hour for the boat to warm up.  Bonnie filed another formal complaint.  I'm starting a trend here...

Back to work tomorrow, just in time for a Nor'easter. We're planning on taking the long weekend to start again for North Carolina down the ICW.
