Re: Headed for LI Sound and Beyond
Good to hear you had a great sail up to Barnegat.
Just back from Fishers Island myself, thought it might be of interest, in West harbor
most anchor NW of green can # 7 but can also anchor in closer south and a little west of
green can # 7 with good holding in 10-14 ft of water.
Also just 6 miles away is Napatree/Watch Hill...the approach thru the channel is worth it,
anchor on the bay side short walk over the dunes and swim in the ocean.
Watch Hills Olympic Tea Room good seafood, but also must try new twist on fried
zucchini...very different and good!
If your stopping at Old Saybrooke well worth while to go up river 6 miles to
Essex and/or continue on to Hamburg cove, crowded but worth a look and no more than another mile or two past the rock faced hills on the east shore.
