Sounds like fun George
Good advice from all as usual. I have seen the South Shore of LI inlets from the ocean and they can be quite formidable at the wrong tide (as I suspect the NJ coastline is as well). Mini races with 10' and higher waves. I have also gone down the Sound and through the East River and although I am sure it is a longer trip than going outside but you can find places to anchor and marinas along the way to duck in to if necessary. I have also sailed on the Chesapeake a little which is as safe as the LI Sound if bigger and a lot thinner. This is a trip that sounds like fun so if your relatives and friends crap out on you I might be interested in a leg or so of this trip as crew if I am still prematurely retired when you depart next fall.
