hurricane sandy is bearing down on us (or so they currently predict).
Tonight we are docked in Kingston NY about 80 miles north of New York City.
In Google maps there is a pic of a boat tied up right where we are.
The mast is up, the boom is up and all the rigging is setup. We can sail now except that we have not yet received our new heavy weather sails.
Our current plan for the hurricane is to motor down to Haverstraw NY which is known as a safe harbour for boats escaping storms on the NY coast. While there we will monitor the hurricane path predictions and figure out what to do.
