Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

Yeah, it appears to be going across the Fla Strait, Keys and on the west side of Fla or panhandle. If the current high moves a little east it should come up the backside and reemerge in the Atlantic but doubtful. Next 48 hours will tell. I was really watching and referring to the system behind Issac. If it goes NW it could curve up the coast. We should be in Atlantic Highlands Wednesday but if need be I could move that forward 1.5 days to beat down the Jersey coast and round Cape May before it comes far enough north.

Taking our vacation in August we re always aware of the greater chances for the tropical stoms than doing it in July or June. Tradeoff is less tourists and crowding.

You are right about the weather. It has been gorgeous and perfect and we have even had some wind almost every day. Lucked out.

Watch for our wave.

Interesting weather happening further south? Yes.
You are smart to be paying attention, as you should.

I'll recommend picking up a 'club' marked mooring ball in Lloyd Harbor (east inside Huntington Bay) as a remote backup plan, if things get nasty.
Inside Oyster Bay harbor is also well protected and would not be a bad place to weather a blow at anchor. Normal tidal range is about 8' as you know.
Both of the above places are better protected then Hempstead Harbor.

Other run and hide options:
- up the CT River
- up the Hudson River

Hope it does not come to that.

Had a quick 5 hour sail past the Ruins and around Gardiners Island to Montauk. Beautiful
Ocean breeze. We are on the bulkhead in the middle of a huge fishing fleet at the Montauk Marine Basin. Took the luxury of staying here fairly in expensively for this area at 2.50/ft. Need to do some laundry and of course dinner tonight for us is lobster. We are staying another day and may get to meet Brad (Bene505) if not tonight or tomorrow night , definitely next Tuesdy in Northport.

So far after a week at sea we have settled into a good routine.

A quick 5 hr sail........ You have been slugging at sea for a bit.

Enjoy Montauk. We stayed in 3 mile harbor for a night, early in the summer. Good anchorage, but I'm not a huge Hamptons fan. It would be a good place to hunker down, if you had to.

You are right, I'm watching tropic storm 10 closely as well. So far, so good. Certainly won't ruin the weekend, but watch carefully for your return trip. At the least, I would think it will make going outside uncomfortable.

Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

"10" has now been named...they're calling her Joyce. They have her tracking NNW and expected to be around Bermuda on Tuesday A.M. Where she'll hopefully Track toward the NE. Hoping it's a non-event for us. You should certainly have time to get to NJ by Wednesday if that's your tentative plan. If for some reason Joyce decides to stir up trouble, there seems to be numerous empty slips in my Marina..it's the best hidey hole in the area. I stayed in for Irene last year. We were three sailboats in a row..just about everyone else in the place hauled out. It's a couple of hours east of the Highlands.

Lobster Prices have been down this year...you should fill up while you can!.. :-)

Thanks for the offer. We will keep that in mind. Hopefully it follows the high and curves northeast and back out into the Atlantic if it even manages to organize itself.

Lobsters are cheap here.

We are right here in the middle of the action on the bulkhead at the Montauk Basin. They were filleting 300 lb big eye tuna, marker swordfish, 20 lb cod, big stripers right in front of us. Someone had a 8 foot thresher shark hanging at the dock too. Interesting place , busy.

Wife and I each polished off a two lb lobster for dinner. What a life. Tomorrow we re taking a cab to the city of Montaulk and just hanging out. Then off back throught the Race or Watch Hill Channel to Stonington

Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo

Hanging out in Montauk city today doing some whooping, visiting the lighthouse etc. SAw a few celebs in the Pancake house this AM. Town eft 8days ago.leftlreminds me of Cape May. Tons of restaurants, t shirt stores, and overpriced shops. Weather still holding well, haven't seen rain since we left 8days ago. Isaac looks like it wil move into the Gulf and not affect us. The "J" named storm appears to turn north then north east far away from the coastal US, but still bears watching.

We are going to pick up Xort ( former SN member) in Northport and go to Atlantic Highlands and Barnegat together.

It looks like Issac will not be a problem (other than maybe some rain in a week or so). Consider hopping over to Watch Hill, RI for a day or two when you in Stonington. It's one of my favorite spots on the southern New England coast.
