Lots and lots on the forum have made the trip south from N England
. Some do it every year. I have only made the whole trip once.
Second the post from dennisjay. Need more info. In a hurry and want to go nonstop or want to stop and smell the roses?
I did something in between. Started from Bristol RI, stopped in Essex Ct for a few weeks, went down LI Sound, East River and out NY harbor. Down the Jersey shore overnight to Delaware Bay. Anchored overnight there, left early and did overnight again down the shore to Norfolk. There entered the ICW
, day sailing
(actually mostly day motoring) anchor
at before sunset. Back outside at the SC border to Charleston. Outside overnight Charleston to Brunswick GA. Again outside to St Johns River.
With the Morgan
you can stay in the ICW
and have little worry about draft
clearance. You will have to go down the coast to get past NJ, there are non opening bridges on the NJ canal that you can't clear. Once you reach Delaware you can stay inside all the way if you like.
