|BoxedUp||Drove up to Newport for New Year's and stopped at Stonington, CT on the way. Looked like a place I would want to revisit via boat. You may want to check it out.|

Marc is correct, marinias are expensive. We ususally take moorings or anchor. If you join Mystic Seaport, second night is free.

Hi, We were there on a short cruise 2 years ago, and stopped at 2 places worth mentioning. The first is Port Washington. Because of late tides on the East River, we made this our first stop and were pleasantly surprised. The town moorings are free for the first 2 days. A great town with lots of good restaurants. We took the train into NYC Very easy. On the way back there was a bad weather forecast, so after exiting the East Rv. we went to Great Kills, on Staten Island. Stayed for 2 days, waiting for weather. They have a wonderful luxurious bus that goes into the city for about $5.00 r/t. Both of these places are cheap to stay. You'll need that money for the high marina fees in LIS.

Hugo sound like a great idea and plan to get some of the SN from different areas together. Thanks for the offer also. We are proably stopping at Port Jeff (Seatauket YC mooring son the way out the Sound and Northport on our way back in the Western Sound.
We would welcome any ideas or knowledge you have of area restaurants, provisioning and would love to even just have a few drinks at one when we are up there if we cant meet out sailing.
Our plans this year proably will involve a few days in the Shelter AIsland Greenport area, Cutty Hunk and The Vineyard for a few days as our furtherst point north ( weather conditions allowing). Everything else kind of depends on who is with us, where they want to visit and how much we want to be on the water each day.
In the last 6 years my wife and I have visited Westport, Olde Saybrooke, Northport, Port Jefferson, Mount Siani, Conneticut River, Noank, Fischers Island, Greenport, Sag Harbor ( we felt like the Clampets there), Block of course, Newport, Watch Hill, Cuttyhunk and Maryhas Vineyard.
Other places we would like to stop include new London/ Groton, Greenwich, Essex.

Hope to be cruising the LI Sound come mid Aug. would be great
say hello or better yet sail along...in any case we are based in
extreme western sound (Manhasset Bay area) and if need any
support or local info just let us know.
Maybe can put together a CB/LIS SN meet if time/schedules allow.

We have indefinite plans, but definite intentions, to make this trip summer 2012. Might be mid-July or later when we depart Chesapeake, time will tell. If traveling together works out I'd be very pleased for your company. If we meet-up in the LI Sound or Block Island or some other RI location that's fine too. You and Donna are invited aboard for 'sun-downers' anytime.
All the best...MGM

Keep me updated as well. We are out at the end of Long Island much of the summer. We could have an extra car if we plan it right.
We may do Nantucket this summer and certainly Block Island. Plus I've been thinking about a trip out 80-100 miles to the canyon (with fishing poles).
