Mary E officially began her journey home to the City of Ships this morning. Day 1 is complete: we are safe and sound in New London, Connecticut. We set off at sunrise and motored throughout the morning. By the afternoon we had a great 10-15 knot wind and were holding steady at 7.7 knots. The rain didn’t start until we passed by the lights of Electric Boat in the early evening, and by 7:30pm Mary E’s dock lines were made fast and she was ready to relax after a long day of work. Tomorrow the goal is to reach New Bedford, and the forecast looks promising.
