Block Island Trip

Hi Guys,

If anyone remembers (or cares), back in the winter (I think) there was a thread about going to Block Island. Well I have made my reservations.

In case anyone else wants to go, here are my plans:
Depart Mt. Sinai Saturday July 10 around 10:30 (close to high tide) and sail to Orient Point, around 40 nm. I have made a reservation at Orient by the Sea for Saturday night ($1 / ft). Sunday morning I will leave around 10:30 AM for the 30 nm trip to Block Island. I have a 2 day reservation at the Block Island Boat Basin, and then I plan on moving to a town mooring for a long as I feel like staying at block.

My return plans are up in the air, I would like to stop at Mystic CT on the way back, otherwise we'll see what happens.

This all depends on weather, etc.

My family (wife and kids) are going too.

Let me know if anyone else wants to join in the fun.

Barry

Barry,

Sounds like a great trip. We will just miss you on our 3 week pilgrimage from the Cheasapeake to LI. Our plans are to leave Baltimore area on July 23 and be at Liberty Marina (Newark) on July 26. Mount Sinai on July 27, Sag Harbor on July 28. At that point we think we are going to Cuttyhunk, Marthas Vineyard for a few days, Newport, Northport, but that part can change as we allow for weather and whatever the wind takes us.

Sorry to have missed you this time,

Dave

Isn't it a long way to Mt Sinai from Jersey City in a day? Especially with the prevailing (no) wind conditions on the eastern Sound. Are you stopping on the New Jersey coast? Sounds like a good trip if you've got the time.

34 miles to Port Jefferson from Throgs Neck Bridge. We will have the last of the incomming tide from he Battery to Hell Gate if we leave about 7:30 AM. Tide up the East River will start running back into the Sound from Hell Gate around 10AM.We should be able to make it Mt Siani by 5-6 PM and yes we will porbably motor sail this section as we have in the past. Last year going home we left Port Jefferson at 7 AM flew down the East River at over 13knots gs and wound up at Manesquan by 6:30. Through here is all the luck of the tides.

We usually go from Baltimore to Reedy Point on the Delaware River in one leg...ride the tide to Cape May leg 2, go in Barnegat Inlet leg 3, Sandy Hook or Liberty Marina Leg 4

Barry - Sounds like a great trip. I am most likely headed east a little later in the season, prob around August. Since we went to Block the past 3 years we're thinking of skipping it this time and heading straight up to Newport for a few days. I personally love Block but the fiance is pushing me to skip it this year and take her straight to Newport so we will see. Last year though on the trip back, we stopped in Mystic for 3 days and had a blast. I'm sure you have been there before so you know the area as well but we stayed at the Brewer yard which was real nice with great facilities, showers, pool, hot tub and the coolest part was taking the dink up the river, under the rail bridge and into town to tie up at the town dingy dock. It was much quicker that way as oppossed to walking in to town and you can also continue up under the draw bridge right into the Seaport grounds next to the CW. Morgan and other tall ships.

I'm sure we will run into each other in person before you leave so we'll catch up then but maybe we can do a mini cruise to CT with John and who ever else before you leave in July. I'll have my boat in Stony Brook/Smithtown till Memorial Day but I'll be back on my Sinai mooring after that.

-Nick

Dave,

I remember chatting a few months ago when it was cold and bleek outside about your trip up to the Sound. I'm so glad sailing season is now here! Just wanted to wish you a good start to the season. Oh also what part of Maryland are you from? I'm actually typing from a hotel room in Columbia, MD, south of Baltimore right now. I had to drive down for a quick business trip. I don't know if your from this exact area but it seems like a really nice place to live around here.

-Nick

Barry,

I'll be a little ahead of you. I'm planning to do the Blessing of the Fleet in Montauk on June 13th.

If you stop by Montauk on your way, you can use our car to get around and see the sights or restock. Let me know.

Regards,
Brad

Nick,

I live in the Towson/ Whitemarsh area just a little north of Baltimore. Colombia is a very nice community midway between Baltimore and DC and about 20 miles from Annapolis. I work at the US capitol in DC and pass thriough Colombia on the way to work every day. Next time you are down this way give a shout, maybe we can meet up.

Dave

Yeah I'll let you know the next time I go down there. Part of my training for a new job I just took is down there so I should be making another trip sometime in the summer. This trip was just in and out and I'm already back home but you never known next time.

BarryL,

Sounds interesting. I sail a Pearson 26 out of Huntington. Have day sailed her for years and would love to "cruise" her just once. I have my reservations because she is old and slow
