If you can get away on Friday afternoon and make Pt.
Judith, Harbor of Refuge you may be able to avoid any
approaches at night. Fishers Is. comes to mind, good idea
approoach in daylight 1st time around.
Also you want the current
with you when you cross the race
can go inside Fishers Is. Sound if you overnight and avoid race
but must keep close eye on charts
and not at night. Nasty rocks
Some places to overnight with approx. distance.
Bristol to Pt Judith...20 nm
to Fishers Is...20 nm
to Ct River Saybrook...20 nm
to Duck Is. breakwater...8 nm
to New Haven...20 nm
