WanderingStar is on a distinguished road
We brought WS home about half ocean and half ICW. We started off shore but about 200 miles north and 80 miles out the forecast turned bad. By the time we reached the inlet the breeze was NE 40kts. We spent the next 5 days steaming north in wind and rain of an early tropical depression, anchoring each night. We went back out at Charleston, had our nicest day off Cape Hatteras, stopped overnight for fuel at Cape May. A day later we passed under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge into NY Harbor. That afternoon we tied up at home in Mt. Sinai. 14 days, tired, but successful. I recruited some crew on sailnet. I can certainly help you partway, as far as Cape May would be no hardship on me, easy to get home. Anywhere on LI or NYC too. Beyond that my wife would miss me too much. (I think!)
