gershel is on a distinguished road
By next month the days will be shorter, and it's very unlikely that you could get in before dark, unless you leave the night before and sail/motor through the night.
I did that leg last week from Great Kills. Left 6am and
motor-sailed the whole way with light wind on the nose that increased to 18kt in the afternoon. Arrived AC 11pm. Not a difficult inlet, but I'm very familiar with it.
