Sailing through Hell Gate NY
My wife and I are planning a trip from Milford Connecticut to Nyack NY sometime within the next week or two in our Catalina 30. The plan is to spend the first day traveling towards Manhattan, stay overnight in City Island go through Hell Gate during slack tide, around Manhattan and up the Hudson to Nyack the next day.
This is our first time and while we have our GPS, Chart-plotter, and more paper charts than you can shack a stick at, we have no experience and would appreciate any and all advice… including suggestions for the overnight anchorage, restaurants, etc.
Thanks in advance,
