Re: Introducing myself from Jersey Shore

I sailed my on my friend's 26 S from Fire Island inlet to NY Harbor in very calm weather. Passed under Blue Angels air show at Jones Beach - boy those planes are loud when they fly that low!
Coastal hops in good weather should be ok. It is just the inlets & tides that can make it hairy. There were like 10' swells on the ocean when we came out into the ocean on an ebbing tide at FI Inlet. Once we got about 1 mile out it was fine with 3' swells the rest of the way.
