Re: Sailing a 19ft boat from Branford CT to Glen Cove Long Island NY
I agree with the Branford to Port Jefferson to Glen Cove route or Branford to Bridgeport or Fairfield or Norwalk, then to Glen Cove if you must do this in two days. But it won't be easy to do this in two days. These boats are moving well if they are sailing at 3 knots and you need time to stow and get underway and anchor (or tie up) at the next location so these would be 2 very long days, probably 10 hours each day if you have a good breeze. For what it's worth, if there is 10-12 knots of favorable winds, these boats are faster under sail than powering.
