Could be that I overheard someone make a comment like this. Not all wealth people became wealthy on the backs of the taxpayer. Most worked hard or invented something. Ironically, I find the wealthy transients on Eastern LI, and in Martha's Vineyard for that matter, are quite liberal and equally critical of TARP.
What I meant by cheap was inexpensive for the LI area for a slip, not the facility which was a 85 on a scale of 100. Mitchel Park I believe was $3 a foot compared to $6 a foot in Sag Harbor and Montauk marinas. The marina in Greenport was great location in city central with an old time gazebo on the grounds. Prestons was nothing special you are right, but the town was kind of fun. Spending 2/3 as much for a mooring in Derring Harbor ( I think it was $75) as a slip in Greenport would make me mad too. If you take a cab there are a couple of LI Wineries about 3 miles outside of town with tasting rooms. They aren't California Russian River Valley or Burgeone France but they were a fun diversion.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

Don't Miss:
Block Island
Watch Hill
Mystic if you have kids and stay in the seaport
Newport

Not essential:
Pt. Judith.
Not a huge fan of Greenport but it has been a long time
Shelter Island was very pretty and very quiet but also boring and too quiet.
Fishers Island is OK but you feel like your not supposed to step ashore
Stonington would be on top list except that is is right between Mystic and Watch Hill. If you need a good marina with a restaurant, laundry, etc. Dodson's is hard to beat.


I have never been in 3-mile Harbor nor Montauk...need to check them out.

So I'm looking for recommendations for anchorages, mid-cruise provisioning locations and cruising guides. I use ActiveCaptain, but am always looking for other resources.

Block Island looks interesting, so we'll probably stop there for a day or two. There appear to be a lot of anchorages along Long Island and Narragansett Bay, so I'd appreciate any suggestions to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Let me know if you go to Montauk. I may have a loaner car for you when you get there.

Great seafood. Expensive grocery store. Great beaches.

Regards,
Brad

I would take Maine over the Eastern end of LI Sound. Hopefully not offending anyone, its just relative.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

All we do is anchor out. Anchored everywhere between port jeff and ptown. A lot depends on what you are looking for in a anchoring spot. Do you want to be near town or in a quiet spot. We prefer the quiet variety. If that's what your looking for I can point you in the right direction.

norsearayder & Minnewaska: I did Maine last summer. I am still traumatized by all the lobster pots.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

jimrafford: I am looking for a good mix of locales: quiet, busy, civilized, uncivilized. In settled weather, for short stays, my preference is for anchoring over mooring and mooring over docking. If the weather is iffy or I'm looking to spend significant time ashore then moorings get more attractive.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

Thanks to all for your responses. I need to take all that info, plus info I've received from other sources, and do some research. Bristol, Stonington and Mystic seem to be highly recommended. Normally my club doesn't allow sailing west of Block I, but I just got permission to sail LIS, so it's time to start planning. I'll be sailing Thea, if you see us out there, say hi.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

In that same area also look at Watch Hill.
If you want to venture farther west to Shelter Island in Gardners bay, Sag Harbor, and Deering have moorings and stuff to do ashore. Orient Harbor, Cockels, Northwest and Three mile are anchor spots. Quiet during the week but busy on weekends. Also nice anchor spot on the east side of Gardners if weather is good.
