Going to the cape, first time, way cool. The Cape is a wonderful area and of course is SD's back yard. You might read these threads for Cape and canal info:

I'll toss out one more thread as another one with some helpful info for that area:

http://www.sailnet.com/forums/cruisi...cape-area.html

NOTE: In that thread I discouraged DrB from considering Green Harbor (Marshfield), but with your boat I think it would be fine. If you were making good progress and didn't want to stop at Scituate, you could press on to GH for the night. You can get provisions at the Brant Rock Market, or walk a bit farther and have a FABULOUS breakfast at Arthur and Pat's restaurant (across the street from the old WWII submarine watch tower).

I'll also echo the sentiment that going into Plymouth/Duxbury would be a detour. P/D is a better stopover if you're heading to or from the canal, but you still need to time the tides right.

Have fun!!

Thanks again guys, talked them into the Scituate stop-over! On the way back my wife and I will do the more advanced straight shot to test ourselves since we'll be arriving at our home harbor and won't mind it if it's past daylight.

We launched Sat and sailed 15km yesterday to test her out. All systems are working great, all sails/rigging/lines safe and sound.

I'm so excited for another season.


SD we're planning this Cape trip July 12th or so, let me know if you're on the north side of the Cape and maybe we can meet up?!?!?

Birdface-

I'm on the southwest side of the cape...more commonly known as Buzzards Bay. However, in mid-July I may be down in Annapolis for a Telstar 28 meeting. Keep me posted, and if I'm not down in Annapolis, I'd be willing to shoot up the canal and meet up with you.

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.

My favorite place with services ont he Cape is Kingmans Kingman Yacht Center -- Marina, Boatyard, Cruising Center on Cape Cod on July 26 they host their annual pursuit race teh BassAckwards Race, a good time with about 80 boats. You should try to make it.

I believe your 7 knots, my knot meter read 9 1/2 surfing on 8 foot waves coming into South Portland two years ago. I have a 1975 centerboard model. The run you're making was always one I wanted to do. Please give a report on your trip. I may haul mine over to Portsmouth NH to do the same.
