OK, I have looked in several internet resources, and I am slightly confused about the way one can run the canal. Someone, please tell me if I am reading it right:
1. If it is High tide going to low tide, and you are on the Sandwich side of the canal, then the current will run with you as you head toward Buzzard's Bay.
2. If it is low tide, heading to high tide, then you can run the canal from Buzzard's Bay to Sandwich because the current will be running north/east.
