Re: Marthas Vineyard, Greenport, Block Island, Port Jeff, Matiuk, Stonington, New Lo
Just got back last Thursday from my annual cruise, hitting a few of the ports on your list. If you've never been to Watch Hill, RI you should put in on your list. Nice anchorage, great beach, and town is a short walk or dinghy ride. A bit of a pain to get in and out via the long channel from Stonington, but worth the detour. One caveat - the channel seems to have shoaled near the northern end as we saw a 40 foot sailboat hard agound in the middle of channel at mid-tide and a friend with 6 foot draft reported touching bottom in the channel this year. Another convenient spot to consider is Milford, CT. Cute town and from Milford Landing marina you a right in town and steps from a nice choice of restaurants, bars and stores.
