I'm with Dave.
I'd plan for 30 hours, since we're still in August and light winds are the norm with dead air still very possible for a day in the Sound itself. Then there are the currents, get a copy of Eldridge to check out current tables and plan for an optimum departure.
Assuming the wind is from the wrong direction, you might only make 3 knots toward your course even if you are sailing or motoring at 5. With a little more luck, favorable winds and an early September breeze, it could be a very nice ride. Might even get to "long sleeve weather" at night.
