Quick's Hole

Anybody know for sure as to whether beach at Quick's Hole is now closed to public? I know it used to open for beach access, but at least one source suggests it was closed by Forbes Trust due to abuse of visitors. I can't find anything definitive. When I sailed through both ways week before the fourth, I saw no one on the beach and both were nice hot days. Anyone know the answer? Thanks.

From the Boston Sailing Center website...

You can anchor overnight here but there is a reversing current so be sure of your ground tackle. The occasional dragger going through kicks up a good wake to roll you asleep (or awake)."
I'm pretty sure it is closed now. Unfortunately, there are people who abuse the privilege that the Forbes Family Trust was kind enough to extend and we all suffer for it.

BTW, where do you sail out of? I keep my boat in Fairhaven.

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.

I sail out of New Bedford/Fairhaven. Boat is moored in Cozy Cove area. My first year there and I'm enjoying it. Boat is Ericson 25+. Wife and I took a week off and sailed out to Dartmouth, spent a night, next morning through Quick's Hole to Tarpaulin Cove, swam, walked beach, spent night and then sailed to Vineyard Haven and spent two nights. Returned early July 3 through Quick's. We had a great time. I have to commute 3 hours from CT to get to boat, but figured closeness to good sailing was worth it. Weekend before, we discovered Cuttyhunk. Our boat is "Promises". Other than bringing boat down from Boston in May, these are our first two adventures. How about you?

I've been keeping my boat in Fairhaven since 2006. I love the South Coast area and all the different destinations you can get to. I'll have to keep an eye out for you when I'm out... won't be until three weeks or so from now, since I'm crewing for a friend on a week long cruise next week, and will be launching my boat the following week.

I'll watch for you. What's the name of your boat?
