Crew Wanted Montauk to Port Washington, 11/15-16

Looking for people who might be interested in crewing the weekend of November 15th and 16th, for a sail from Montauk to Port Washington. The plan is to sail mostly in daylight, with an overnight stop somewhere on the CT side of Long Island sound Saturday night.

The boat is a 2000 Beneteau 505, with accommodations for 9, but I'd like to keep it to 6 max.

Crew would be responsible for taking turns at the helm, help with the cooking or cleanup, and assisting with navigation, so some knowledge and experience sailing and boating is necessary. I will buy the food and drinks for the trip.

There is public transportation to Montauk via Long Island Rail Road, the "Hampton Jitney" bus and local busses as well. I will pick you up at the train station or bus stop in Montauk. Port Washington has easy Long Island Rail Road service to NY City and other points from there. You would be responsible for getting to/from the boat.

No drugs of any kind, no smoking. Fun, friendly people wanted. I prefer to meet potential crew in or around Nassau county sometime this week.

Please respond to me directly.

Happy Sailing!

I have sailed the area a lot and find the north shore of Long Island, Mattituck Mount Sinai ,Port Jefferson ,Oystery Bay and Northport much simpler to enter


Most of the Conn side has really ROCKY entrance channels

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

That's one of the reasons I prefer to sail in daylight.

Some potential crew have expressed a desire to make it a long day sail. This would involve leaving in the very early hours of Saturday morning the 15th. I'm planning it as a two day trip and staying flexible to conditions etc.

I am in connecticut, i may be free that weekend, is there a ferry going from ct to montague? if so is it running this time of year, I know there is one from port jeff to ct. but once again dont know if it is running this time of year. I have a 37 ft sloop, sail long island sound, have taken nav courses and am currently in school for Masters captains licence. I can navigate, skipper, crew and clean. Overnight is fine with me, actually preferred. One stipulation. i am allergic to cats/dogs, do you ever have any on board? If interested send me a private message and include phone and we can discuss further

I'm definitely free that weekend. Transportation to LI is no problem. Timing is no problem I'm the boss at my company, could help on Fri or Mon if necessary too. I've skippered, crewed, repaired etc. for a few years in LIS and other places. 203-605-8801

I have been going out to Gardiner's Bay for summers for over 40 years and learned to sail in part on Hempstead Harbor. When we got our 27' Tartan 6 years ago we delivered it from 3 Mile Harbor to Great Neck via Plum Gut and down the Sound. This past June I helped a Beneteau first 51' owner deliver his boat from Tortola, BVI to Turks and Caicos with just him and me on board. I wrote an account of our trip here: http://www.sailnet.com/forums/cruisi...gry-ocean.html
I think that 6 people total is more then you need and it could be done with 3 or 4 able crew members unless you are using a chute or spinnaker. More than likely the wind will either be on your nose our possibly the N or NW which could provide a better point for sailing to Manhasset. My copy of Eldridge shows the flood tide starting at The Race at 6:13 am on 11/15 which would mean that getting a very early start would be a good thing as by around noon the current will start setting northwest. The tidal currents will not be at their worst but will still be pretty strong as the moon is still close to full AND it is at its perigee (or closest orbit) and in a northern declination. Some of the maximum currents by Plum Gut and the Race can be pretty strong if they are setting against you so an early start is what you should be shooting for. This could mean assembling your crew Fri. night and leaving early, weather permitting, with a possible overnight on Sat. I know that your boat should be able to do 8+ knots but with a 3+ knot current near The Race against you it will not be as quick as you might like.
I also know most of the harbors on the north shore of LI but unfortunately I am a cigarette smoker and am not sure that I am free to join you. Still, it sounds like a fun trip/delivery.

CalebD -- I'd love to have you on board. Can you smoke out in the cockpit every time instead of down below? Also note that with the "tradewinds" we've been having, it might be an upwind trip.

(When my wife was driving my car once, she had my sister (a smoker) on board. The car smelled like cigarette smoke for 3 weeks afterward. Go ahead, ask me the fun way I got my sister back. You'll never guess.)
