Introducing myself from Jersey Shore

Hello,
Sailing New Jersey bays for twenty years.

Asa keel boat certified on Delaware River (under the Ben Franklin Bridge).

Learned on Laser and Hobie Cat 16. Own Force5 dighy (13') & Macgregor 26S.
Macgregor sails very much like a dighy,mini van can pull & sleeps (camps) 4 nicely.
So far, just a few over nights (1 adult-3 kids).
Best,
Gmull

Re: Introducing myself from Jersey Shore

Welcome gmull.
I have sailed on a Mac 26' S and spent the night aboard so I know what you mean about camping. Lots of space below, just not much headroom.
Which inlets or back bays do you mostly sail on?

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.
