Hugo, I will certainly call on Monday, I prefer mooring which is right on the sound in case of coming storm always can move my boat to the safer marina. I mostly go on day sail it is easy to be right on the Sound. I would like to hear your thoughts as you are in this area.
I am not that experienced sailor and still on the learning
Pretty hard escaping horrible traffic on West./Ct. coast as well, but assuming you are familiar.
Moorings outside Mamaroneck are right on the sound, actually seems many or even most mooring fields up that way are right on the sound and very exposed especially from south and southwest weather
Actually a protected mooring would be prefered in heavy weather
many hard things at marina/docks.
Our marina is right on sound as well and it is wonderful to be sailing 5 minutes after arriving at boat but is very protected from south and southwest also becomes easier, especially if singlehanded, to p.u. mooring most times.
But come mid Oct. I bring boat into protected Manhasset Bay and extend season to end of November/early Dec. most years.
Don't worry, I consider myself a experienced sailor and I'm still in learning stage!
Maybe someone familiar with protected mooring field in West/Ct. could
lend some advice
