Sailing to Nantucket

Hello.
I am planning to sail to Nantucket in 2 nd week of Julie from Haverstraw marina on a Hudson. My boat is Benetau 28.5. I was thinking go on Atlantic side of Long Island and shoot straight to Nantucket and pass between Nantucket and Marta’s Vineyard. I check charts there is allot of shallow water looks dangers. Did anybody used this approach? We been to Marta’s Vineyard and Block Island before but we took a road between main land and Mantras Vineyard.
Thanks

What he said... I used to sail my beach cat around MV and once you get south of the island the water can get rough in a minute and the shallows are everywhere..... I'd take the inside of MV if it were my boat...

Re: Sailing to Nantucket

If you stick to the Muskeget Channel you should be fine.
