Re: Trip planning

Denise - this is why I like Chef's idea: do the C&D with the current in daylight, drop the hook off Reedy Island and wait for the next tide. Then weigh anchor with the current and ride it out to the cape in daylight.

P.S. Tide and tidal current are not the same. Time the trip considering tidal current vice tidal rise and fall (i.e. "Tides")
