Cruising Long Island Sound?

Hello All -

We're considering moving our boat from Lake Champlain to the New London , CT area of the Long Island Sound next season. I only know the sound from racing there as a teenager. Other than Block Island, is it reasonable to go there each weekend to explore? Generally speaking, we arrive on a Friday night, leave to go someplace on Saturday morning and then return on early Sunday afternoon to go home. We also do 2-3 weeklong trips each summer. Our preference is to sail to a populated area with a good waterfront and go exploring (not a secluded anchorage). Thoughts?

Part of the reason for the move is to gain access to offshore sailing during those weeklong trips to learn more before our 1-2 year cruise in 2009, but we want to make sure that weekend trips are reasonable too.

Thanks!
