Looking for a Buddy boat: Block Island to Norfolk or Atlantic City
My wife and I are on a 37 foot sloop currently moored just west of Cape Cod in Marion MA. We are expecting to launch for our trip south to Florida sometime in the next week or two. Our ideal first leg is to travel from here (or Block Island area) to either Atlantic City or Norfolk directly. The alternative is to eek our way through Long Island sound, through Hells gate, and the south along the Jersey coast. We'd rather just go straight from here to Norfolk or Atlantic City on the outside.
Now all that said, it would be nice to have a buddy boat of similar size/speed to cruise with for the trip. As is often the way things happen, boats wait in harbors for a weather window and then launch together, so...
That gets me thinking. We should be able to launch after this coming Tuesday or Wednesday. So the first available window then would be our time to jump out.
Anyone else here on a similar time frame and interested in heading outside to Atlantic City or Norfolk? It should be a 48 hour jump to Atlantic city or a 72 hour jump to Norfolk. Much better than staying inside the sound and then running the Jersey coast. Just praying for some nice northwest or northeast days!!!
