Leete’s Island, CT

We departed Newport Monday morning and cruised 68 nm to Joshua Cove, near Guilford, CT. The Thimble Islands, and archipelago of between 100 and 350 islands, all privately owned- are nearby. The anchorage is wide, and good holding, but lacks any public landing to go ashore- a good stopover but not for cruisers with dogs. We did find a beach along the road and went ashore for a brisk walk before the mosquitoes carried us off! Nothing more than a place to pull off to the side of the road, but a pleasant one. A good night’s sleep and we headed out just after sunrise in the morning, bound for Manhasset Bay where we would stage for the passage down the East River between Brooklyn and Manhattan.
