I have made the trip from Glen Cove (next to PW) to points east dozens of times. There are lots of possibilities and I have tried most of them. I like easy-in/easy out spots where I can drop the hook. First stop heading east is usually Northport or Port Jeff depending on wind and when I get going after loading in the morning. Next stop could either be Duck Island/Westbrook or Mattituck. From there if currents and wind are with you, it's possible to hop directly to Block via the Race. If not, stop at Stonington, and make the shorter trip via the Watch Hill Passage. Make sure you have a copy of the current tables so you can time your travel in eastern LI Sound.
