Re: Best week to sail in MA
I thought that you did this same trip in 2013. Did you not?
I am planning a week long trip, to the same destinations, that will co-incide with the Perseid Meteor Shower in August. The current plan is to sail from August 9 or 10, to August 16 or 17.
I did the trip at the same time last year with my sailing club, and we all had a great time. There was no problem with crowds. Many of us met at Third Beach in Newport, then all went to Cuttyhunk (there were few enough people there that I was able to anchor in the inner harbor!), then we planned to go to Lake Tashmoo (several boats did not make this stop), then everyone met at Edgartown. From there some went to Nantucket, some went to Chatham, and my boat went to Dutch Harbor. Boats came and left our fleet, so everyone had a slightly different experience.
One boat, a Gemini 30 Catamaran, was based out of Westport. I expect that he will be joining us again.
PM me if you would like detail.
