The Southern Migration Begins.

Time: 17:20 local
Lat: 41 04.7′ N Log: 71 46.1W
Distance from Newport Harbor: 31NM
Distance to Chesapeake Bay Entrance: 311NM
We were held up a bit trying to get fuel and water in Newport.  The central harbor was so clogged by boat show traffic that getting a spot at a fuel or water dock was going to take forever, so we set off a bit lighter in tanks that we otherwise would.  Plenty to get us where we are going, however.
The weather (so far) is perfect. Winds 10 to 15 knots from the east, the ocean is flat, and we are making excellent time. The highlight of this trip so far has been the dozen or so common dolphin that stopped by to play with us as we sailed between the Block Island and Montauk.  They entertained us for about 15 minutes, or did we entertain them?
The weather forecasts look good for the next couple of days, so we should have a smooth trip.
