Re: Cape Cod Canal vs sailing around

I agree that going outside affords no port of refuge. But, I also just think the canal is fun. How often does one transit a canal? Worth the trip, particularly if you can time a fair current.

There is an LOA that requires checking in with canal control, which I'm sure we are all below. Can't recall it exactly. However, I always give them a call anyway and they will let you know if there are any big boats coming the other way. Not necessary though, it just puts your head in the game.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
