Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

I'm sort of averse to sailing into inlets for that reason. Making the turn in with 20 knots wind if you are constricted can be stress inducing so I will just motor in.

There was a pretty nice...

Re: Jacklines - where to run them?

I appreciate these discussions. While there's nothing new under the sun, working things through again (and again, and again...) is a good way to process the information. That's the function of a...

Re: Jacklines - where to run them?

The idea of twisting the jackline is to make it easier to pick up the jackline to clip on. I lay mine flat and have never had a problem picking up the line. I prefer the jackline flat for no...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Hey,

As noted, having an itinerary with a sailboat can be difficult.

On one hand, if you want to go to specific places (Block Island, Montauk, etc,) and you want to stay in a marina, you will...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

I carry a spare mainsail (2 mainsails, 3 jibs, 3 spinnakers). It surprises me how many sailors have multiple jibs, but only one main. I would also bring some sail tape for repairs underway.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Tempest has some good advice, but you'll need to plan on a 3 day transit from Cape May to Vineyard Haven, if conditions allow. Block Island could be a 2-day passage: you wouldn't save much time to...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

This is a family trip right? We think your kids are great but we haven't sailed with them. Passages, even short ones, are an issue if kids need maintenance.

If you time the currents right,...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Additional bonus for hitting Port Washington...very close to LIRR into NYC or Laguardia airport. You could leave the boat on a mooring there and fly in and out with relative ease.

In the event you do not have it, get the Eldridge Tide and Pilot Book. Use the boston harbor tide for calculating vineyard sound tide.

Chef

If you decide to leave it someplace for a week or 2, suggest you don't in my neighborhood. Our summer mooring prices and dock prices are crazy high. Too much demand, they all fill up.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Agree with the advice about backing off a little. Cape May to MV is an overreach IMHO. You need to allow for bad weather and losing a few travel days. Hopefully you can be in an interesting harbor...

Having made this same trip many dozen times, I am curious which inlets you speak of. I my opinion the only safe ones on the Jersey coast are Cape May, Atlantic City, Barnegat (graveyard of...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Best prices for diesel fuel are usually at Utches in Cape May, Sandy Hook, NJ and Point Judith marina inside Point Judith harbor of refuge.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

You'll probably want to make a reservation in Cape May if you want a slip for the night.
I believe Utsche's marina has the best price @ 2.00/ft. South Jersey Marina is a dollar more ($2.95) But...
