Re: Need help sailing S2 Plymouth MA to Providence RI next weekend
Definitely get through the canal on day 1. Spend the night in Onset or Marion or Pocasset (Kingmans), my favorite.
If you come out the Canal with the current and against the common SW wind, you will face some five miles of 6 foot chop. In such circumstances, consider an escape path via the shore channel that hugs Wings neck. See Active Captain for details.
