Cruising Long Island Sound

Thanks for all the suggestions. Here is the working draft plan as it is evolved at the moment.

Day 1- Haverstraw to Liberty Landing
Day 2 - Liberty Landing to either Port Wash or Glen Cove
Day 3 - PW/GC to Northport
Day 4 - Northport to Port Jeff
Day 5 - Port Jeff to Blackrock (Capt''s Cove Searport??) (take kids to a Bridgeport Bluefish game)
Day 6 - Blackrock to Norwalk (visit aquarium)Day 7 - Norwalk to Stamford
Day 8 - Stamford to City Island
Day 9 - CI to Liberty Landing
Day 10 - return to homeport of Haverstraw

The goal is to limit sailing to only a few hours each day so I don''t wear out my children (4 & 6 yrs old) on any single day. So i have kept the hops short.

Any additional suggestions about where to stay or stop.

Stuyvesant at City Island and Northport sound great. Anchoring at PJ also sound pretty appealing.

Does anyone have any experience with Brewer? They seem to have well-equipped facilities (ie, pool for the kids) at Port Wash, Glen Cove and Stamford.
