good luck,

We stopped in both Northport (we stop there every year) and Port Jeff on our trip to the Sound this summer...both great places

Northport had family night with a band in the center of town (Seymors is the pllace to moor

Port Jeff on Barry L recommendation- Setauket Yacht Club- great eclectic restaurants and neat shops

To tell the truth I'm not sure about the reciprocating club thingy. My failing memory tells me we kept our boat at Steppingstone at that time and they gave us a mooring. I'd call them about availability of the transient moorings though given the promise of the weather forecast. I believe HYC used to have only 3 transient moorings.

Northport definitely has a saltier flavor and several Sailnutter's live there or nearby.

Keep a weather eye out.

This 48 hour in the future graphic from NOAA may provide a bit of a damper to your plans:

Brett, Just spent an evening In Mamaroneck...Very
accommodating if they have the room (Might have boats tied up at docks that would usually be available to transients because of pending weather) Harbormaster
Joe Russo on channel 16...
Bye the way...passing hurricane could suck water out
of the sound for up to 24 hours...resulting in a lot less water under keel that chart indicates...Don't ask how I
might be aware of information!
Welcome to Steppingstone...come say hell-o...
Little Jumps is 30' fractional rig with beige hull and
burgundy sail cover on mooring 188.
Good luck Hugo

@Hugo - I will definitely look for you, I am there almost every Sat and Sun. Dove is on the furthest south east mooring.

We ended up staying on the mooring Saturday because of the rough conditions. everything worked out though, MusicFest was moved to Sunday.

So we caught good wind early Sunday and made it to Huntington in time relax for the day by the lighthouse listening to the music. We got a mooring at Coney's that night and had dinner at Prime. Although I was not impressed with the food, the atmosphere was great.

The only hiccup was that I forgot to check the gas before we left Huntington and had to make a pit stop into Oyster Bay which cost us a few hours coming back.

Definitely a got a few more trips to do from all the suggestions... thanks again.
