We are leaving the Chesapeake for our annual trip north on Thursday after having almost all of out elctronics as well as engine panel and lights taken out by a lighning strike from the water 3 weeks ago moored in Annapolis visiting Sailnet friends (4arch, Captain Rizzo, Wingnwing)

Tenatively in a perfect world I will list some of our iteinerary. We choose to visit and vacation in small blocks rather than do the leap from Cape May to Block Island as we love some of the towns we visit on the Jersey Shore and the western LI Sound. There are 5 weather days built in to this as we dont have to be back in the Chesapeake until September 10. The long range weather looks good for the first week or so so god willing wer should be be staying close to our itinerary to Marhas Vineyard, after then who knows..haha.

We would love to meet any Sailnetters from up there if your shedules permit you to hang out for dinner one of the nights, have drinks if we are in a marina cloise by or raft up.

Also please make suggestions as to restaurants, things to visit etc. We have been to some of these ports in the last 7 years, but I would like to hear your perspective on them. In addition recommend other places to visit on the Sound in case we dont have to use any of our weather days. We would love to see new towns. We have been to Mystic, Newport ( not on the Sound), Old Saybroooke, Westport already.
