Re: New York to Cape May ok for beginners?

First, let me point out to you and the OP that this is a personal opinion. I grew up on the North Shore and have sailed LI Sound many times. I also went to school in New Jersey (we rode our dinosaurs...

Re: Jellyfish west/rhode river?

I was out yesterday and didn't see any jellyfish in the West. I wasn't looking from Auspicious but I was right down on the water dinghying around and didn't see anything.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

There was a pretty nice...
