Re: Sailor from Long Island

The PITA in sailing up and down the Sound and out east to Nantucket is the timing of the journey with the tides and wind. When they work perfectly you can make a passage rather quickly. I've hit 12 knots going thru the race! And I've see boats literally making no way sailing against the current in Plum gut. Timing is everything!
