sailing from western LI sound to Block Island

The advice about travelling through The Race (consult Eldrige, only go at Slack or favorable tide) goes double for Plum Gut.

Pick the wrong time, and you''ll find yourself sailing backwards.

I prefer the Plum Gut route myself. The Race is boring (not picturesque) and choppy. Plum Gut and Plum Island are cool.

Take a fender board unless you have reservations at Boat Basin. Floating docks are rare as hens teeth at Block.
