Day 3 NYC

4am -- Depart Lawrence Yacht Club .. East Rockaway Inlet to Atlantic Ocean .. into a placid mystical calm and foogy ocean .. Ted reports that the calmest waters have been in the ocean. The boat is nurtured by the current as the Novella heads west toward Verrazano Bridge along a shadowy coastline.
.. Sun finally peeked out of the clouds at 0800.  Up the shore line and under Verrazano Bridge. Watching parachute jumpers at Coney Island .. Sailing into an array of full colored vessels in the metropolis harbor -- Fireboats, the Statue of Liberty in velvet green, helicopters, the Freedom Tower, under the Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Hell Gates to the East River. Now in the blaze of full sun, crusing at 7 knots and crossing under the flight path of LGA, Whitestone 
Bridge, Throgs Neck Bridge, into the Town of Oyster Bay, where the crew enjoyed hot pizza ordered by the folks at Sagamore Yacht Club where Novella docked for the night.
