I was hoping to stretch out our crusing ground with the extra hands to drive
That's about 70 miles, so seems like 5 knots made good? Hope there isn't too much tacking.

At that pace, Block will be at least 3 more hours from Watch Hill. Nantucket will be further from Watch Hill than Norwalk.

If you have 10 days, you might want to back down the ambition and stop to smell the roses along the way.

I do hope you have a great time.
