I wish I saw this post earlier. It was indeed a beautiful weekend for sailing in the area around NYC and LI.

I was checking with my boss to see if I could take Monday off and I think he almost had a heart attack when I asked. We are in the busiest season of the year for us. Good also is the fact that we have been the busiest we have been in 5 years! But not good for taking a Monday off unexpectedly. Glad you may have found crew.

There is fairly frequent luxury bus service to east Hampton as well (Hampton Jitney and others). Train or bus, it's a couple of miles to 3 mile harbor, so you will need a ride or taxi at that end. Don't go to Port Jeff and think of the train from there. It's a different line, would take hours and hours to make connections.

I'm sorry I'm so far away. I'd be there in a heartbeat if I could...

jh, the LIRR does go all the way out. But coming down from CT, you may be better off getting the ferry from Bridgeport CT to Port Jefferson, LI and then taking the train out from there. The ferry isn't cheap but then again, it cuts hours off the trip and $$ off the train rides.

I also think of East Hampton as being one of "the" Hamptons, which are on the South Shore. But apparently EH township extends all the way to the north shore so 3MH sounds more likely.

DavidPM would make an excellent crewman for your trip. I have done this trip before with him from MTK to Glen Cove and he is a great crew member.
It would be difficult to get someone as capable and competent as he is to go with you.
I kid you not.

Yeah, there are trains go to Montauk, so I am sure there will stop in East Hampton. But not sure how frequent they will run in the weekend.
