Re: Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound

Next stop on the North Shore past Glen Cove is Oyster Bay which is worth exploring. Then its Northport/Huntington with lots of choices for anchoring or getting a mooring. The town of Northport is charming, and last I heard allows free transient tieup for a couple of hours. Next stop east is Port Jeff again with lots of anchoring or mooring choices. On the Connnecticut shore there's a harbor every few miles. Entrances can be bit trickier due to rocks and reefs so watch the charts. My favorite marina on the Ct shore is Brewers Pilots Point in Westbrook. For details, get a copy of the Embassy Guide to Long Island Sound. Invaluable for those exploring LIS for the first time.
