Back at the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club - That's All Folks!

We spent a quiet night at the Haverstraw Cove. It’s completely protected from the bay, no waves can get into the anchorage and the surrounding hills provide protection from the winds. You just have to watch our for Fitchett’s Reef inside the cove.

We left around 7:15 and headed north in light rain but the water was flat and we had a weak tide with us going north until around Newburgh. When we reached PYC around 1:00 we had great help from PYC members in docking, many thanks to the Fitchett’s and Phil Bowdler!! We later had wine and snacks with Sharman and Bill Fitchett before heading to the Eveready diner for sandwiches.

We’re now on the boat for the last time this season, sad – and to top it off, it’s raining again as if to reflect our mood. Some year we’ll continue on south down the ICW to Florida for the winter, we’ve got to make our boat time last longer! So long everybody, it’s been fun writing the blog and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it. That’s all folks!
