3) Vineyard Haven to Nantucket Harbor
(too ambitious? How long? Distance?)
4) Nantucket to Edgartown
5) Edgartown to Newport via Vineyard Sound
6) Day ashore in Newport
7) Newport to E. Greenwich, RI

Done it many times from BYY in East G.
1. it's approx 40 nm - 6 hrs at 7 knots avg. My record is just over 5 hrs.
2. 4 hrs +/- for current
3. 6 hrs
4. see #3 - maybe 5 hrs as Edgartown is a but closer
5. 8 hrs again depending on your avg speed

This makes a nice 2 week cruise with ample time in all three places not that there is anything to do in Cuttyhunk
