Re: New York to Baltimore

Suggestions --have your boat secured for sea, have a crew aboard that is reasonably experienced to share the duties, time your transit trip so you reach Cape May in daylight, avoid a tight schedule and look for a weather window to cover the 100 odd miles, hire a weather service like Commanders Weather( very inexpensive, very reliable ; added comfort for a first trip offshore). For the transit up Delaware Bay just take advantage of the incoming tide to the C&D canal. And have a great seafood dinner in Cape May!

Re: New York to Baltimore

I recently made the trip. The two biggest concerns are inlets in New Jersey between Sandy Point and Cape May to duck into either for the night or in case of bad weather. They are dependent on your draft. The other issue is the Delaware Bay. Make sure you have the tide going with you. If so, it can be a glorius ride. If not, it’s the ride from hell.
