The last day of sailing was done in very light winds, the majority of the time with the engine running.

Overall the Red Hook to new York it was a very nice passage with lights winds and therefore more engine usage that I would like, however I experienced some of the Atlantic calms and learned to enjoy them. The weather was very warms from the Caribbean to our night arrival to New York harbor.
Sailing (and fishing) with Jeff Lewis ( has been, as always, a true pleasure and
full of tips and advice on sail trims and seamanship.
