Hard to predict time as it depends so much on wind and weather. However it's about 100 miles, so at 5 knots that's 20 hours. If wind and weather are against you, it could easily be much longer. On my first trip to Block almost 30 years ago, it took 5 days to get there from Mattituck!! I usually figure 4 easy days as I like to arrive early enough each day to enjoy an afternoon swim or go ashore. If you are willing to do one overnight sail, you could make it in one day.
