June 7th, 2010
We were amazed that our old friend was not as angry as we had left it. The North Atlantic had finally decided to play nice with us this time around. The thing that we can tell you about the Jersey coast is that it is flat and there is not a lot to look at, (Well, we are from Maine after all). The wind was very fickler and we had to drop our sails and motor. As we motored up the Manasquan Inlet we notice something very odd, we were the only sailboats in a sea of motor boats (Brad would be happy), the only place we could tie up was the fuel dock. With a 4 foot tide we had to literally climb down a pole in and out of our boat. The following morning a 6:00 AM we had to leave because the fisherman were coming in for their fuel. So we untied ourselves from the dock and headed back out the inlet towards Atlantic City.
