Well, it's a tough sail up to that part of the world. If you go North you can anchor at the Sassafras River but then you have the Delaware Bay which can be brutal. You want to try to time the tides because the current is quite strong. Once you get out of the Delaware Bay, you really only have Cape May and Atlantic City. Both of these inlets are very difficult if not impossible to enter at night without Radar. Believe or not, its easier just to do your trip in one shot. Depending upon wind, tide and weather, figure 3 days for that trip.
