Re: Quonset Airshow anchoring
With 12 to 14 kt wind out of the northeast all afternoon, I suspect there will be a reasonable fetch out there today. Great sailing day, however!
You want to be east of the field to really see the show. The USCG will buoy off a safety zone. We've anchored south of the field, where there are no crowds, and you still see them re-form overhead. Last year, we were out in the dinghy and the blue angels flew so close that I got a pic with my cell phone where you could see the pilot! Thunderbirds are here this year. I was at the airport yesterday and they are all ready to go.
Anchoring out is a great way to see the show. If the anchorage is not comfortable, you won't be disappointed you went sailing today.
