September 4, 2009... Little Peconic Bay Crossing

We left Sag Harbor today headed for Cutchogue Harbor on the North Fork of Long Island. There isn’t much written about it in the cruising guide, so we hoped that indicated it would be a little more low key than megayacht city at Sag Harbor. The clincher this morning was when one of those yachts anchored next to us and immediately some yahoo got off and onto a jetski and started boring holes in the water. How pleasant! We made the best of the light winds in the Peconic (which never registered at all on the anemometer) and sailed most of the way. Very slow but very pleasant. We found a nice place to anchor just off New Suffolk and spent the first hour watching 25 sailboats go by to race off Nassau Point. Looking forward to tomorrow’s exploration of the Harbor, and the towns of New Suffolk and Cutchogue.
