Having gone outside and through the Chesapeake I'd say stay in the Chesapeake especially if this is a new to you boat, not much places to pull into outside until you get to NJ. From Cape-may I would go to Atlantic Highlands or anchor around the back of Sandy Hook, then shoot to Fire Island Inlet.

Thanks for your vote, I'm tending to agree. That was the original plan and I think we should stick to it. I guess if I heard back from a lot of people that the outside route is easier, quicker and fewer problems it would be a no brained, but that's not what I'm reading.

Rather than just pass New York City , you might consider going thru Long Island Sound.

It might be a bit longer than offshore along the south shore of LI , but there are loads of fine protected free anchorages on the way.

Reeds or a tide table is a great help in transiting the Sound.

From where you are, I would not backtrack to Norfolk, I would continue up the Chesapeake Bay and through the C&D canal and the Delaware Bay to Cape May. From there, make your choice to take the NJ ICW or the Atlantic.

And don't try to go 11 knots. Stay at or below hull speed, maybe 8 knots or so.

We are going to Patchogue which is on the south shore of Long Islsnd. The bay is shallow but my husband is very familiar with it, has been boating there for almost 40 years.
