Trip Planning: Salem, MA to Cape Cod

Hey everyone,

HAPPY SPRING!

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?

(25 foot 1976 O'day, 15hp Evenrude o/b, 7knot hull speed)
