How many of us have ever shoveled snow from the deck of a sailing yacht ? We did….This morning, during the height of a classic whiteout blizzard during which NY State was put under a state of emergency our little Alpha 42 showed her toughness. The diesel generator assured comfortable temperatures inside the cabin while raging gale force winds where ravaging the community. The plan to complete a winter circumnavigation of Long Island (a nearly 200 mile trip) has been accomplished. Our Alpha 01 braved the harshest of conditions and was sailed via Port Washington, then through NY Cities Hell’s Gate to New Yersey’s Liberty Landing Marina where her proud new owners have signed over the boat.
