We were thinking of stopping in Mt Siani on our trip to Block we are going on to Marthas Vineyard from there on our trip from the Chesapeake. I have beensailing the LI Sound for a few weeks every summer. Isnt it possible to go from Mt Siani to say Greenport or Orient in one long day ( I know you will have the tide against you some of the way) The distance from Port Jefferson to the R2G Bouy at the Plum Gut about 10 miles from Greenport/ Orient is about 42 nm. averaging 5 knots that only about 9 hours. Once in Greenport you wouldnt have to worry about the tides as much on the way to Block correct as you are outside Plum Gut and the Race.? I have never been in Matiak inlet. Is there enough water in there? anchorages, moorings? Just in case we decide to pull in if the Plum Gut tides are ripping against us?

We would love to meet up with some of you on our trip in the Sound this year.

Dave
