Those of you up here in the Northeast....
I'm heading from Salem, MA to Provincetown - tip of Cape Cod the second week of July 2008.
I've roughly planned heading out to Buoy Y"AB-2" and then cutting a bit south in to the cape cod bay.
I'm taking my younger sister who has very little sailing experience. I want to make sure the trip is as efficient as possible but also in line to normal winds and comfortable for her. My current route has us a good 15knots from any solid land, should I hug the coast more?
Has anyone done this trip regularly and have any advice for me?
