We 'blew' in on Wed. afternoon. I wouldn't be surprised if your boat is in one of our pictures!

Bene505 --
Where do you keep your boat in Montauk. We will probably head over there for dinner later this week (probably by car, not boat), if you are around, maybe we can say hello.

On Sunday (7/19/09) in the Small Craft Advisory we went from MV (Edgartown) to Block in 14 hours. It seemed like there was a whole fleet of boats passing us running downwind - and having a much better time than we were. Were you one of those boats?

We did Block to Montauk the next day (in light wind) but saw hardly anyone.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

Hi Bene, That ketch you saw was probably setting a mizzen staysail.
"One couple had a ketch with this spinnaker-looking think on the mizzen that went out and also across the cabin top. "
BTW, It is good to be able to vicariously enjoy everyones cruise around these parts this past wek or so. I was suppose to sail my Freedom 33 SEASOP, in accompany with Pete on his Pearson 30 SEASPRITE from sHELTER iSLND TO Montaulk, Block. Cuttyhunk and then the Canal to Plymouth and back. Instaead, I am hold up in my boat at my slip in Greenport wearing a neck Brace after being rearended in my 91' Capri by a tractor trailor last weekend on the LIE 495. I did just hear from Pete anchored off Plymouth an hour or so ago. Well, I am glad for Sailnet and being able to read threads like this and enjoy what others are doijng this past week in my neck of the woods. Fair winds all, Rick

We were there on Wednesday, in the back (northwest corner) at anchor. Look for a gray hull O'Day 302. Where were you?

We started back twd Buzzards Bay on Friday the 17th but had a similar 'ride'. We actually entered the Sakonnet river Friday afternoon, or more accurately 'surfed in' We had to contend/negotiate the 'fish traps'. Those things are more 'boat traps' than fish traps. Man, I'd hate to negotiate those things at night!
Looking back, I'd rather have done an overnight on Block and as someone else suggested, just made shorter trips. 20 mile days would be much easier because the wind seemed to really blow [more than I like] every afternoon.
