At the east end of the sound you might want to try Stonnington Harbor Dobsons marina easy in / out great places to dine and shop - Nappa tree/ watch hill is along way in and rough in a good blow. Fisher Island is also beautifully good anchorage great ice cream for the kids and the Pequot Inn for the older kids. I would do Stonnington easiest out to watch hill pass or Lords Pass.|

An option is to anchor behind Duck Island. I do that at least once each summer on my annual cruise. You can then duck into Pilots Point to get ice, fuel, and water.|

Looking for a marina near CT River
We are cruising for a week starting in 7/13. We want to be at Watch Hill by noonish on Monday, 7/14. Our boat is in Milford, CT. I am planning on sailing her up to Westbrook or the Connecticut River and having them meet me Saturday evening. I need a place where we can leave the car for 5 days that will also be nice to stay at for 2 nights. (1 coming and 1 going home.)
The rest of the itinerary is easy: from there we'll probably spend a night at fishers Island. Next is Watch Hill, then out to Block for a few days and back.
I want to be at least as far east as Westbrook because I want to make it into Fishers Island Sound before flood starts around 2:45PM.
