Re: Cape Cod Canal vs sailing around
This is all true; however, one of my favorite trips when we were in Marblehead was a circumnavigation around Cape Cod coming down thru the canal and out to Nantucket for a jumping off point. We (wouldn't have done it singlehanded) flew the spinnaker all the way up the "forearm" after picking our way out from Nantucket in the fog...(no gps then in the 80's). Storm came in at the top so instead of stopping in Provincetown as planned (which would have required a long merciless beat), we simply reached to Scituate...non stop from Natucket. Quite a ride. Motored back to Marblehead the next day in no wind. Memorable.
