Re: Cape May to Block Island advice needed
The Fourth on Block is hands down it’s most popular/crowded week. The point made above saying some come early and prepay their mooring fees and go home is absolutely true. They are first come, first serve.
This year’s fourth is curious. Being on a Thursday, I’d expect the following weekend to be the crazy one, so one could luck out in the anchorage, if you arrive early this week. Let the weekenders go home and maybe find a spot on Monday. This afternoon expects thunderstorms to roll through and I simply would not trust the ground tackle of those around me. Some don’t know how to anchor, but to be fair, the bottom gets very plowed up and may just not hold as well in storm gusts. Further, if you put out more than 5:1, while good for your holding strength, you may swing too far, when the winds shifts.
