Brought a 39' ketch from Lauderdale to Long Island in May. It took 14 days, half in the ocean, half in ICW or alongshore. That was due to bad weather. I had a good boat and a great crew. We all got very very wet. There were about three days of sun, the rest fog and heavy rain. But I still look back and smile. Be careful, have fun, bring plenty of good food. Your crew is the most important component of a good trip. Fair winds.

NY Canal System

Hello,

Here is some figures that may help you. The Erie and Oswego Canal is open from 7am-10pm through Sept. 9th (then goes to shorter days). The speed limit varies along the canal but is at least 10 mph except in no wakes zones.

NYC to Oswego is a long 7 days on a sailboat (then again it sounds like the whole plan is tight), but possible barring any lock closures or weather problems if you keep moving all day. Don't forget you need at least half a day to put down your mast.

More information on the Erie Canal page.
