Re: Sailing a boat from New London, CT to NJ

Wow, so I significantly underestimated the speed of the boats. Probably a good thing, but still interesting by just HOW bad I was off. I had assumed 50 miles a day (roughly 10 hrs at 5 mph SOG).

An advantage of the run down the Delaware is that it would give me a chance to experience the Delaware Bay. I have been very curious to sail through there. I had a thread going last season about sailing in the bay as my home port. I know people do it, but many of the members here spoke very negatively about it, so now I am curious.
