I've only done a little sail cruising outside of the LI Sound, and one delivery from Florida. There are plenty of good harbors on both sides of the Sound. I read Duncan's Cruising Guide to New England, even though much of it is out of date. I also registered with Active Captain, and find it helpful. Don't sail too hard, or stick to a tight schedule. Leave time to enjoy the towns and harbors. Watch the currents where warned, it can be scary in Hell Gate and Plum Gut, hard to stem in Fisher's Island Sound and Cape Cod Canal. Message me if you stop in Port Jefferson or Mount Sinai, I'll buy you a drink. If you post specific questions or request cruising advice in the General Sailing part of this forum, you'll find plenty of experience. You might also find answers in Destinations.
