NJ to Noank CT - Bristol 24

Not an exotic voyage to South Pacific, but I have purchased a Bristol 24 in Bayville NJ and need assistance bringing her north to Connecticut next week (or possibly the week after)

She's a 1978 Bristol 24 and this will be my first voyage with her. Route (outside or up the Sound) is something we can discuss. I sailed a lot many years ago but it's been a while so any experience with navigation or this route would be helpful but not required. Just looking for someone to help with the voyage.

if you are interested I can fill you in with details. She's small and she's not elaborately decked out with amenities yet...


you can email me at stuart (at) scarduner (dot) com

Can't make the trip. But, a Bristol 24 was my first boat and I still have fond memories of the cruising on board. I do recommend you make the trip up the East River into the Sound. Just make sure you have an up to date Eldridge Tide and Pilot on board.
It will make dealing with New York, East River and Long Island Sound currents much easier. Go with the flow and enjoy the trip and the Bristol!

I am in the area, and would be eager to make the trip. Any chance of meeting the skipper and seeing the boat?

Re: NJ to Noank CT - Bristol 24

Hi there...

I'm interested should you still need crew. Quick background on me:

Over 40 years sailing, both coasts & great lakes
Dinghies to 115 LOA Schooners
Monohulls & Multihulls
Day sailors to long distance cruisers

Offshore Sailing School (City Island, NY):
-Sailing, seamanship, and basic navigation on 27 Olympic class Solings
Coast Guard Auxiliary (Fort Totten, Queens, NY)
-Sailing, seamanship, navigation

Boats Owned:

I've done local racing, Around Long Island a few times, a few long distance races, did deliveries from New England to Miami (+ the intracoastal)

I'd be happy to help. I have a friend in NJ who might also be available if needed. I'm familiar with the B24. Which interior layout is yours? Is your trip to be overnight (which I'd expect) or is a stop planned on LI or maybe Block Island (along the probable route)?

Best wishes regardless of whether I go with you or not.
