Re: Cape Cod Canal vs sailing around

The canal is wide and straightforward. Just get the current right. Worry more about the conditions in CC Bay. It can get pretty nasty. +1 for NOT trying to go around. There are no good bailouts, a lot of shoals and currents. You can anchor just south of the canal entrance channel and wait for the current to switch.
