Cruising Ideas - Summer 2008

Fellow MA Sailor's.

We just got a sailboat last year in June and did only day sails with it. We are still fairly novice with our new-to-us boat, This summer, I am looking for a few Overnight/Destination type of sails ideas so we can start getting experience withe extended cruising trips.

Two Destination Idea Sails that I looking for suggestions on:

Overnight: Basically leave Salem Harbor, sail for 6 to 7 h, moor or dock somewhere, then sail back the next day.

Multi-day/Extended Weekend: 3 day, Same as above but maybe sail to Destination 1 on Day 1, Day 2, destination 2, and then Day 3 return.

I think Boston Harbor From Salem is a good overnight. But looking for other ideas that would make for a nice cruise and get us more comfortable with extended cruising. Is Provincetown or say the South Shore doable in our time constraints? How about the Isle of Shoals?

Thanks in advance.

Drb

take a look at the Eldredge Tide Book and see if you can go through the canal and then sail to Mathas Vinyard......Edgartown or Vinyard Haven are great...

Posted on the other forum - but here as well:

Try the different harbors along the south shore - Cohasset, Scituate, North/south river, Green harbor, Plymouth/Duxbury, or even down to Barnstable. All are day sails inside Mass/Cape cod Bay - good weekend overnighters. All have pretty good facilities - and things to do off the boat as well. A good reference is the the US Power Squadron Site for MA -www.boatingguidetoamerica.com/index.cfm?doc=Boating_Guide_to_America:State_MA

Others mentioned through the canal - I always hit some of the harbors just on the other side (onset, Sippy, etc.) - and some are close enough to be considered day trips. - See:Welcome to SouthCoastNavigator, your #1 boating source!

Jim - You need to start a new thread, rather than hiding your question inside a different topic.
