Congrats on your c22. Check out Active captain ActiveCaptain - The Interactive Cruising Guidebook - Marina Reviews, Fuel Prices, Anchorages
lots of info and places to go. Its free. I refer to it all the time while planning a trip. Also great to have onboard if you got internet access. Have fun planning for the spring.

SOUNDBOUNDER This is going back some years, but Cruising Guide To The New England Coast mentions that anchoring is not allowed:

dmkey Either way, I'd rather not disturb the shells. Maybe it's a good place to paddle into with our kyacks.

IIRC, the harbor was "protected shellfish beds", and that was the reason no anchoring was allowed.
I am guessing this was about 8 years ago.
I can't be positive, I will have to go back and look.

Perhaps it has changed, I do not know.


Some other places to consider are the harbors on Shelter Island.
Also, this year we anchored one night in Northwest Harbor, east of the Cedar Island Lighthouse. No protection from the SW, but it was a calm day, so it was fine. Rowed ashore, walked the beach, checked out the lighthouse etc.

cb32863 Sounds like a great time. I am looking forward to similare experiences next season myself.

dmkey As far as Robin's Island is concerned, we just anchored for the day. We did spend a night on the boat but it was a bit of a joke. My wife got claustraphobic and left with my seven year old. So it was just me and Flurry (my miniature poodle). We spent the night in the marina.

Last Sunday was my last sail, I single handed - light winds. She'll be on the rack by end of the week at Strong's. Lot's of fun projects for next year. Solar battery charger; installing the boom jack that came with her and some other stuff.

We will definately try to camp out at anchor. First I'll get a fan for the hatch, so we don't have to burn up.

CalebD Glad to hear that you got your C22 out to the Peconics safely. Also glad to hear that you were not chased off while anchored by Robbins Island. Did you spend the night there on the hook or just an afternoon?
I'd love to visit Jessups Neck, even camping on a C22.
I don't see why you couldn't try to get into Napeague Harbor. The entrance can be pretty shoaly but your boat has a center board, right? The entire harbor is pretty shallow and wind surfers love it as do the bay men. On the eastern side of this harbor is a spot called the 'walking dunes' which grow to about 60' and literally 'walk' as the winds move the sand around. Very cool spot which was used to film the original 'Lawrence of Arabia' movie some 60 years ago; once you see it you will understand why.
Do you have a trailer for your C22? Is she spending the winter out there?
