We are planning two weeks west of the Connecticut River. We have cruised extensively Long Island, NY, Block Island, Buzzards Bay MA, Cape Cod and the Islands, The south and north shores of Boston and to Maine.

Long Island Sound west of the Connecticut River is new to us.

Lots of nice places on the LI side. Mattituck inlet, Oyster Bay, The Sand hole (if you are a good navigator), and of course the free moorings in Manhasset Bay just to name a few. Port Jeff was nice when you could hook up in Pirates Cove, but I never liked the other anchorage area.
Never did much on the CT side except for the Thimbles once.
Enjoy!

Heading North this summer. Don't know if it's LI sound to Block Island and Martha's Vineyard, Lake Champlain, the Great lakes, or some combination. Probably won't firm up plans till May.

We're hoping for a run to Nantucket in late July.

Being in the middle of Narragansett bay, we're out a weeknight or two per week. We're often at block island on the weekends. Probably hit Montauk, cuttyhunk, woods hole, Martha's vineyard at least once.

I was just looking at how far up the Thames, connecticut and Hudson River you could go. Or at least would want to go.

A gang of us on the Hudson late season would be fun. Look at the leaves from our heated lower helms without so many other boaters....

We're planning a few weeks of travel starting out from home in Rochester. Plan is probably to head down into the NY canals, probably exploring the west end of of the Erie and into Cayuga and Seneca lakes. Exact plans and timeline are still TBD though. A trip down to long island sound is probably not in the cards for this year. If we get down there, it'll be by car.

If anyone gets up to Gloucester ma area I could put together a nice little cruise through the annisquam river out into Ipswich bay then up to plum island and the merrimack river,or take the outside route and stop in rockport at all the little shops,could easily make 2 days of it,Ipswich bay has some incredible sand dunes,and many places to anchor and have bon fires on the beach at night,and specially if your a fisherman I know some great spots,also to free dive on a few oyster beds,and the blessing of the fleet is always huge

Jay,

I guess I'll have to eat my words. We did go to Mattituck this summer. Loved it, will be back.

Gabe,

You can cruise about 15 miles up the Thames to Norwich. On the way you will pass Electric Boat where submarines are built, the Coast Guard Academy, The New London (in Groton go figure) Submarine Base, Mohegan Sun Casino and and many other interesting sights. Be careful navigating above the Sub Base.

Rob

I'm interested. I've been thinking about trying to get up to Maine this summer. Anything northeast of Manhattan will be undiscovered country for me. I don't know anything about Long Island sound, Block Island, Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, either. LETS MAKE IT A CONVOY!

We have discussed Fishers Island and Watch Hill. Of course Block Island is always a good meet up spot.

Some of the best cruising grounds on the East coast are east/North of Manhattan... You will be well rewarded... and probably a whole lot easier getting to your home after getting off your job boat.

Wifey B: Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Limerick City, then there's Boston. New England cruising is incredible and then so much history too. Wonderful area to cruise.

Yes be careful. Specifically there is a stone wall that is just outside the marked channel in several places. If you stay in the channel you will be fine.

The walls are north of the Mohegan-Pequot Bridge.

We are planning to do a 16ish day cruise from Hampton, NH and hit Provincetown, Nanatucket, Martha's Vineyard, and Block Island in 2021. Probably starting mid to late July. We have been to P-town and MV before.

We’ve cruised the Maine coast quite a bit, usually doing 2 weeks hopping from place to place. We may head toward “the city” this year, we’ve never been west of Block Island. In any case, we’d be interested in a get together/cruise in the area.
