New Member Hi To All

Hi to all:
New at this and will need some info's for L.I. Sound. Planning to sail the sound next season with my wife on my 31 foot saiboat, or may be with a new one if I get to sell this one.
Nice to see so many people helping each other on these forums.
Looking forward to exchange ideas.
Eolsen

Re: New Member Hi To All

Hi and welcome to the forum. I saw your other post about cruising LI Sound. It's a great place to cruise. Lots of interesting spots to visit, lots of places to anchor or dock but not cheap.

I am more familiar with the north end of LI Sound. For short term visits as in a day or week or so most places are $4.00/ft or more per night for docking. Mooring $30-$40/night and up. Nantucket last I heard was $75/night for a mooring. Rates at the upscale marinas will be higher. I like anchoring in that part of the world.

What part of the sound are you planning to cruise?

Re: New Member Hi To All

Thanks for the info's skipmac, my intentions are to explore the sound towards the north, Block Island,Nantucket,Martha's V. etc...
Will be comming from Lake Champlain,down the Hudson R. Stick around for maybe 3 weeks then back home for a few days by train or bus ??? and back to continue sailing around for another 3 or 4 weeks and by that time it will be probably time for winter storage,which I don't know where. Have to inquire for suitable prices ???

Welcome aboard, Eolsen... I'm on the other side of the continent but wish you well in your cruising endeavors. CF is a great place to get info and support along with some somewhat severe criticism sometimes deserved, sometimes not, if you're up to that. All in good fun... cheers, Phil

Re: New Member Hi To All

Hi Eolsen,

North end of LI Sound is a great place to explore. I bought my boat there and moored in Bristol RI for the first year. My daughter lives on Martha's Vineyard and they keep their boat on a mooring in Lake Tashmoo.

If you have good ground tackle and don't want to spend the big bucks on dock or mooring I would anchor in Tashmoo or the lagoon off Vineyard Haven harbor. Both are very protected and good holding. Not sure the rules for long term anchoring but there are harbormasters who are very helpful.

Some of the spots in the upper end of Narragansett Bay may be more reasonable as well. In general the further south and closer to the sound you get the more expensive it is.

There are a couple of websites that you can use to research marinas and rates. I think https://activecaptain.com has a pretty complete database.

Re: New Member Hi To All

Thanks to all:
I'm newlly retired and have a house to sell in order to renovate a new one, so my visit to the sound will be delayed a bit. In the mean time I will take a look at all your info's and will be cycling around Cape Cod region, so I,LL have a peek around there.
Thanks again.
