Our journey north from Kingston takes us to Waterford into the Flight of Five!
The Flight of Five are a series of locks that transport ships from the Hudson River to the Cohoes. Transporting Sea Turtle from the salt waters of the Hudson into fresh water. Each lock raises us 15′-25′ . We will spend the next few days of our voyage in the locks with a span of up to 11 miles in between each lock.
Even though the weather has been three days of rain and thunder and we’re getting reports of high water and strong currents, Sea turtle is happily heading on her journey at a giddy-up speed of 7 knots!
