Russ and Sam, Thanks for posting about the Summer Sailstice movement. Iíve been on the mailing list for a decade and have planned and executed 2 over that time. Among the members and guests here on this forum there are natural groups of boaters on local bodies of water such as Lake Erie, Tahoe, Chesapeake Bay, NJ Bays, Narragansett Bay, Dallas Area lakes and in my area Long Island Sound. If folks are willing it might make sense to organize Sailstice trips to nearby destinations. For me, Iíd be willing to organize Mattituck, Port Jefferson or Northport Harbor in Long Island, or New Haven, Norwalk or Mystic Harbor in CT.
Hereís my plan for Sailstice around Western Long Island Sound Friday-Saturday-Sunday June 19-21 While Iím starting out in Milford waters, Iíll be sailing west through the dead center of the Sound most of Saturday and arriving at Eatons Point late Saturday afternoon. Provided thereís a safe and legal anchorage somewhere in Northport Bay, staying overnight and returning back to Milford on Sunday. Itís about 25 no each way.
Could also switch to Norwalk Islands if no anchorage is available in L.I.
As long as we get to sail.... And with the "more working from home" with their own computers (BYOD) There will be more security coming due to all the hacks and malware on none hardened computers So definitely ironic, but more to come. Best

Updating my Milford to Northport Harbor SAILSTICE trip on June 20-21, weíve registered three boats.
A buddy will be sailing his Wharram 23 catamaran from Clinton Harbor the weekend before to Milford. At 31 nm doing about 8 kts, he expects to make it in about 4 hours. It usually takes me all day long to sail that distance in vessel Passage.
Another friend is located in Huntington LI NY and has a mooring next door in Lloydís Harbor. There is a large anchorage adjacent to the mooring field.
He plans to sail out toward Stratford Shoal, aka Middle Ground, to meet up with us in progress. At 25 miles from Milford, I expect to make Eatons Point by 3:00 or 4:00 pm.
Iíll install the grill and prepare the steaks for dinner. The others are responsible for potato salad and tossed salad or cole slaw. I plan on suspending my diet for this event.
If anybody nearby would like to join, weíre accepting all comers. You can join us from any point in Long Island Sound, and just meet up in Lloydís Harbor.
The only rules are face masks at all times or social distancing while eating. There should be plenty of adult beverages and snacks.
