If your goal is to arrive in Atlantic City in daylight from Sandy Hook,
I would plan on leaving sandy hook in the wee hours of the morning.
3 am or so.

The prevailing winds are southwest so it could be a beat or a motorsail into the wind. But it's anyones guess what the weather will be a month from now.

Make sure you fuel up somewhere before you leave. Where will you spend the night before sandy hook? Top up your fuel there!

If you don't mind night sailing...and the weather is right..I might consider doing Sandy Hook to Cape may...Then you could plan on noon to noon...sailing...

Check back next month when you are in the neighborhood...
