Long Island Sound Visit
Thanks all so much. I''ve completely revised my sail plan based on your generous advice. I''m giving up the Sand Hole and looking into the nearby options you folks suggested.
We''ll move more quickly through the western Sound and include time in both Mystic and now Newport too. Block Island is still my jumping-off point for Cape May, NJ. We plan to be at Block the weekend AFTER the 4th of July and arrive late afternoon on a Sunday. Maybe we''ll find a mooring, but your advice on anchoring in Great Salt Pond will be applied if the moorings are taken.
Hell Gate will be a 1st for us but there is plenty of advice on timing the transit to the tide and it works out nicely for a ~9:00 am trip on the 6th of July.
