4 1/2-5 days -baltimore to delaware river, down Delaware to cape may, or atlantic city depending on ocean up coast to sandy hook, across and up through to port jefferson. This presumes good weather and anchoring out-if you are going marina to marina add a couple of days

Bmore to top of bay at c and d canal one day. Leave daybreak into canal and down Delaware bay. Stop Cape May. Run the canal and anchor at the coast guard station. Leave before dawn and drive north to Sandy Hook. Again anchor at the coast Guard station. Head into New York harbor and up the East river. Enter the Sound and hopefully make Port Jefferson. A long day and if the current is not favorable through Hells Gate stop at City Island or oyster en route.

Once you enter Delaware Bay to round Cape May secure (hide) any sharp items until you get to NYC. The Jersey coast is the most boring transit on the east coast. Nothing but Atlantic City ahead and behind as you head north.

Enjoy. We used to make the trip on our sailboat annually. It literally drove us to purchase a trawler!

Why Hurry?

Ideally a trip from Baltimore to Port Jeff should include an overnight stop in Atlantic City, 2 or three nights in a marina with easy access to Manhattan (like one of the ones in Jersey City or Downtown Manhattan), maybe a night in City Island and then Port Jeff - One might also consider anchoring out in Graves End Bay overnight before going to his Manhattan accessible berth to observe the light show that is New York - So, In my humble opinion, a trip from Baltimore to Port Jeff should be no less than 4 days and not much more than 7.
