Glad to hear that you got your C22 out to the Peconics safely. Also glad to hear that you were not chased off while anchored by Robbins Island. Did you spend the night there on the hook or just an afternoon?
I'd love to visit Jessups Neck, even camping on a C22.
I don't see why you couldn't try to get into Napeague Harbor. The entrance can be pretty shoaly but your boat has a center board, right? The entire harbor is pretty shallow and wind surfers love it as do the bay men. On the eastern side of this harbor is a spot called the 'walking dunes' which grow to about 60' and literally 'walk' as the winds move the sand around. Very cool spot which was used to film the original 'Lawrence of Arabia' movie some 60 years ago; once you see it you will understand why.
Do you have a trailer for your C22? Is she spending the winter out there?
