I lived on Block for awhile and treasure the experience. Compliments on your 28' and have a great September sailing...its the best time of all.

Thank you both! I am definitely hooked and cannot wait for longer cruises in our area and even further. Thinking I'll need at least 2 weeks for the next passage so I can make it to Newport. Now, the trick is to find a new career path to allow for this lifestyle! It would be great to rendezvous with you Long Island sailors one of these days!
