Since you are taking the Reedy Route vs the one long day" way, the correct times to achieve the maximum current run from Reedy to Cape May is to leave 1/2 hour before slack going into Ebb not Flood tide.
On Friday May 31 that means leaving Reedy at 5 AM. You will carry a good boost from the current till 11 AM. Should take you past the Miah Maul and close to the Cape May Canal.
Reedy is a tricky entrance between two 2 ft above water rock jetties. Not a large openong but power through s current swirls there. Anchoring behind the low Reedy island gives protection from wakes, but not wind. Also large current so if you don't have all chain rig a Kellet to prevent anchor rode wrap of your keel.
