Welcome aboard Goose. I own a 39' ketch that I brought up from Fl. Your trip is pretty staightforward along either shore of Long Island and down the Jersey coast. The ICW can be tricky, with shallow spots. There is a good website, ActiveCaptain with plenty of input from other sailors. It's free to join. (I'm a member, but have no financial interest). There are probably other ICW sites or forums too. I know there are printed guides. Watch the weather, be careful, allow extra time. Are you going solo or with crew? In shore or off? Good luck and have fun.

Thanks, I will have my wife with me, she is getting pretty good at sailing these days, I can tell since the amount of frustration and yelling has subsided,lol.
I can't help but think off shore is the way to go, stay a few miles out. The ICW looks tricky and slow.
I have been using active captian to locate safe anchorages along the way incase of bad weather. It is a good useful site I have been using in local costal sailing. Any time I take a new course I try to ask as many folks as I can who have been there done that for advice and compile my notes from there.

Sounds good. If you end up in Port Jeff, drop me a pm, I'll buy you a beer and drive you to the store if needed. My delivery north started offshore, changed to ICW due to bad weather, went back out after a few days. Fair winds and let us know how it goes.

I'm guessing you are about 25 years old?
