Just outside the Fire Island Inlet
We left the Great South Bay early on Day 2, and entered the calm sea with a rising sun.

The sea was calm and not great for sailing. There is a holding area for NYC container ships before they get close to the city. These ships are actually anchored here.

Liberty and the sailboat

On the second day, as we entered New York Harbor...
The boat traffic was chaotic. There were private boats like this sailboat and ferries and water taxis and tour boats. To make matters worse, Jet Skis were buzzing around with no apparent direction!
