Re: Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound
Andreas, Perfect!! Sounds like a great trip! Thanks for the after action report.
I forget who pointed it out, maybe Rich H, if you do time it to hit the gate at slack, expect more commercial traffic in there with you. Last time I came down, I caught up to a barge that was slowly turning in the gate. The good news is at slack you can simply slow down and let them get through before proceeding.
The good thing about riding the currents is that the 15 mile trip..gets done in two hours or less @ 8- 10 kt over ground.
