Cruising Long Island Sound
In July, my wife and I intend to spend about 10 days cruising from Haverstraw NY on the Hudson River to the Long Island Sound and back. Our ultimate destination is going to be Mystic, CT. We will be cruising with 2 small children, ages 4 & 6. This will be our first "extended" cruise.
Any suggestions concerning good places to stop and explore in the Sound? Any places that are particularly child friendly? Any places to avoid.
Our intial plan is to travel from Haverstraw to Liberty Landing in NY Harbor on the first day. On the second day, we intend to transit Hell''s Gate and get into the Sound. We are thinking of stopping at City Island or Port Washington that afternoon. From there, we have no specific destinations other than Mystic, but figure it will take about 3 days of 5 hour sails to reach Mystic depending on where we stop each night.
