Re: Advice re: September trip to Block Island and Newport
Not to be an alarmist or anything, but I'd to point out that that is the height of the hurricane season. As the NE has been hit more often recently than in the past, it seems, I would like to suggest that you plan for at least tropical storm conditions and have a secure hole in your plans that can be reached from any location on your planned route, in 8 hours or so.
Better safe than sorry.
Have a great cruise and let us know how it went.
