Weekend Trip Suggestions from NYC

Hi all,

I have a Catalina 27 in NYC (Newport, NJ actually). We just bought the boat, and have done most of our sailing in the NYC Harbor. We would like to find a) some good places that we could sail to for good day trips where we could possibly anchor and swim and b) good weekend trip (overnight) destinations, also possibly with decent beaches.

Anyone have any good suggestions??

Thanks!

Beck

Get yourself a copy of the Cruising Guide to New England, which also covers Long Island Sound. Plenty of places in LIS you could go for a weekend.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

A few come to mind. Watch Hill, Mystic CT, Northport, Greenport, to name a few.

He's in Jersey guys! How is he gonna make it up the East River to the sound in a C27 on Saturday...and have time to do anything...then turn around and come back on Sunday..all while timing the tide/current in Hell gate?

I'd be thinking Coney Island, Rockaway Inlet and Sheepshead Bay.

I guess my suggestions were for a long week end! However, I just took a boat (not much bigger) from Perth Amboy NJ., to Northport day 1, Northport to Mystic CT. day two.

Boats from my club in Glen Cove commonly go for a weekend through Hell's Gate to NYC and back, so going the other way is certainly possible.

Sandy Hook in NJ would be a good destination also.

I'm just a few a miles north of you (at Lincoln Harbor). I bought a Catalina 250 at the end of last season. My wife and I just made a trip to Sandy Hook, NJ and had a great time (her first overnight trip). Sandy hook is only about 20NM away... so depending on the wind it is more a day trip. The bay sure beats the Hudson river traffic. Both Sandy Hook and Great Kills are good places to anchor. I suggest you checkout the activecaptain web site you can scroll around the map for anchorages. I've also sailed my boat everywhere between here and Boston. If you have any more questions or ever need a hand or crewmember let me know (I'm new to this site but I'm sure it has private messaging).

Camaraderie, Would you actually anchor and swim at those places? how's the water over there?

Hey Aaron,

Thanks for the offer. I might take you up on that. I had been thinking about Sandy Hook... glad to hear a good recommendation for it. I'll look into Great Kills, too. Someone else also recommended it.
