On our Long Island sailing cruises, we seek out protected ancorages to ensure calm waters for sleeping. Port Jefferson's sand hole makes an excellent, protected ancorage. The hole was made by the excavation of sand that was then shipped off to build much of New York City. It was an ingredient in the concrete and glass that were needed by the new skyscrapers. The dunes are easily climbed, giving a panoramic view of Long Island Sound.
