Sag Harbor-NYC-Atlantic City
You have received some good information about LI Sound. We have had good experiences at Brewers marinas in Westbrook, Branford and Stanford. Also Excellent facilities at Milford Landing Marina. A good stop would also be at City Island depending on the time of favorable tides in the East River. As far as NJ is concerned the Atlantic Highlands Municipal marina has very good facilities, moorings and maybe slips asl has a launch service. Next stop would be Manaquan River. Inlet is difficult with a following sea otherwise OK. Stay at the Shrimp Box. It is usually a free tie up if you eat dinner there. Next stop would be AC. Good luck. The Embassy Guide is an excellent resource with phone number and hailing channels.
