Cruise Notes: Locked out of Chatham on a planned trip to Rochester so as to help Nick set up his Navionics software. Had Amie & Danny on-board as crew today, Danny's first trip out so soon after leaving Chatham he took the helm for a while. Stayed at Rochester, on the fuel berth, for lunch and setup. A really beautiful day and very hot so on departing Rochester decided to take a cruise out into the estuary. Called up Andy & Anita (in Chatham) and invited them to meet us on Chatham visitors berth, hove to as they boarded. Ran out to Long Reach before turning and heading back to Chatham against a strong ebbing tide.
