Orient Point - Long Island

21 June - 77 NM

I set off early in the am - the forecast was for a big storm to pass through, by the time I had finished breakfast, the winds had picked up and you could hear the lightning, but fortunately it pass pretty quickly - I was pretty glad I opted to do this route as opposed to going on the outside...  The wind died down  and I was under slave power for the entire day, with the wind lending a hand from 1200 to about 1800 directly from behind.  It was really nice to be out the Atlantic as it was  a perfectly calm ride as opposed to a rocking ride...  I got to Orient point shortly before sunset and I anchored and was off to sleep..

The weak front that passed through...
