June 2011 Kingston to New London Transit Voyage banner

The sun sets over Long Island Sound, seen through the Half Moon's stained glass transom window.

The Replica Ship Half Moon spends its operating seasons traveling the three rivers that traditionally defined the territory of New Netherland: the Hudson, the Connecticut, and the Delaware. Our travels usually incorporate Voyage of Discovery programs or other special projects, but sometimes, the Half Moon simply needs to reach its next port of call.

For this transit voyage, our crew of volunteers and returning Voyage of Discovery alums have gathered to sail the Half Moon from its current berth at the Hudson River Maritime Museum in Kingston, New York—where we've just concluded several weeks of public tours and dockside programs—to New London, Connecticut, where we will resupply the ship before launching the 2011 Fresh River Voyage of Discovery on June 30th.

Latest Update (6/23): The logs are on their way. In the face of stormy weather predictions, we've decided to cut the transit short a day and will now be arriving in New London late this afternoon.
