I'd rather be sailing
We'll make the final decision on Friday before we leave, but based upon weather forecasts for Friday night/Sat/Sun/Mon, leaving Branford, CT, going east around Montauk and then direct to the Delaware Bay looks good. Weather forecasts look very stable all up and down the eastern seaboard with winds of 10-20 and seas of 2-5ft the whole way. This is from Florida all the way to Georges Bank. I'm thinking the risk is fairly low, but I'd love some additional opinions... I'd rather go this route than traverse the East River/New York Harbor/New Jersey Coast at night. Thoughts?
