NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

My annual trip to Block I, June 11 on Resolve, J40. I'm looking for one or two crew - no experience needed. I'll pay all expenses and get you home. Slow sail (no hurry, I hate motoring) with 2 or three stops (probably Milford and Conn River), Tues to Friday. Resolve is in the water in Oyster Bay. Come out for a sail before the trip. Frank

Re: NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

Hi Rob.... Resolve is in the water now in Oyster Bay.... I go out every
few days... I live at the end of the F train... if you wanna come
along to visit her and meet me,
I sail out on June 11 , no rush, sailing (usually Milford then Conn river then block) and meet my wife over weekend & crew
high-speed ferry back to New London & train back to NYC... It's an
off-year with BI race week (there will be a minor off-year race). We
stay at a mooring. I'll be moving Resolve to NSYC in Port Washington. I'll invite several for 20 mile sail back towards NYC.. Frank

Re: NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

I’ve done this trip many times but dates don’t work for me, put am a bit curious why you’re taking 3 days
from Oyster Bay to BI ?
Have done BI from Port Washington in one go
many times 20-24 hours in a slow IP27
Cheers
Neil

Re: NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

Why 3 days?.... because I can (I'm retired). And I think of the trip to Block as a social event with a friendly crew (drop a hook behind Charles Island & swim). If I was in a hurry, I'd take less time (or I'd drive). My first nite, from Port Washington (Resolve is in Oyster Bay now but that is my winter storage - I'll have her back at PW soon) some 35 miles to Milford (and the friendly Milford YC & say hello to my family there). The second night some place at the bottom of the Conn River (another 35 miles or perhaps Shelter Island). Then a pleasant day to BI. I like to sail (not motor). If the wind is 15 from the west then I have short days. & I don't think sailing and schedules are compatible (the old "waiting for the wind to come up" - I used to sail a 25' without motor around LI then out to Block . I had a crew who when in high school built a sailboat and circumnavigated. He taught me the pleasure of waiting for the wind to come up.

Re: NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

I smell a trip to the Gris.

I grew up in Oyster Bay, back when the harbor was a superfund site with Jacobson Shipyard building tugs and no town marina, just derelict docks and oil sheen on the water. I hear it's a new era there, but have not been back to see if it is true.

I love Block. It what Nantucket was 50 years ago. Or at least a little taste of it. Have fun!

Ah, Oyster Bay. Roosevelts still have kids in the Junior program at Seawanhaka Corinthian YC. Billy Joel tools his bikes around there. Oakcliff Sailing match races a fleet of 40 footers there. I thought Seawanhaka was always a big club.... Say hello to the Chesapeake for me....

Re: NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

Fond memories of Block, spent the summer of '86 boat sitting and cleaning up a Morgan OI 41.
Used to lunch at a little shop along Dodge or was it Ocean?

Great sandwiches with outside seating, fave was Provolone, red onion and Russian dressing on a pumpernickel roll - awesome - it was the first pumpernickel sandwich I ate.

Just curious as you have a fast yacht, that i believe
has done well in off shore races.
I too, don’t believe in sailing to a schedule

Re: NYC to Block Island, June 11 , on a J40

Hi Frank,
If you are not already aware, North Cove at foot of Ct River was dredged over winter
to 11 ft. and understand many more moorings put in this year.
If you recall I sailed with you and your son a few years ago on a get to know you sail.
(did not do the BI with you, thinking schedule problem or family cruised with you).
Regards to Gary and Warren at nsyc.
Hugo
