First Trip to Bock Island
After spending a summer sailing though fog, squalls and nightime, and plum gut, I feel that I am ready to go to Block Island on my Catlina 27. I will be leaving from Westbrook this Saturday. Below are my thoughts, any comments would be appreciated.
Ebb starts at 13:33, but I want to arrive at Paynes during daylights. So I plan to leave around 10:00, knowing that I will be fighting the current for a couple of hours. I figure the passage should take 7 hours. Looking at the chart it seems that going through the Race north of Valiant Rock makes the most sense.
I plan to dock at Paynes, at leave Sunday morning around 8:30 to take advantage of the flood tide.
