Your chance of getting a slip or mooring is pretty slim, considering that is basically high-season for the Vineyard.
If the wind is out of the northeast, north, northwest, or west at all, Menemsha Bight will be miserable, since the harbor faces northwest and the bight itself is pretty much wide open to those directions, and the Vineyard will be a lee shore for you.
What draft does the sailboat have? I've anchored in the pond, but there's a bar across the channel, which is about four feet at low tide IIRC.
Be aware that Menemsha harbor is a working fishing harbor, and the large dock on the left as you enter the harbor is reserved for commercial fishing boats.
Cuttyhunk is probably a better bet in many ways, and far better protected than the Menemsha Bight.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
