We generally go in mid-late August in order to synchronize with a family gathering in Cape May. I would go in June, given the the choice. August features spotty wind and hurricanes; twice we have had to maneuver around them, either waiting in a harbor for it to pass, or rushing home with rising winds on our tail.

Many people chose to convoy, but there is really no need, with due care. Watch the weather and have several alternate plans, get good maps and guides, and enjoy the solitude. There are no obligatory runs over about 45 miles.
