We tried last year but you got called away. This year looks like we will be in Mystic, Old Sayebrooke, Block, Stonington, Matituck, port Jefferson, Port Washington and maybe Greenport.

You really need to look me up next time you are in Montauk.

Regards,

Was he there last season? I never saw him and was looking, as I told the story to some guests and they we're looking forward to it. I was also there two weeks ago, but presume that's a bit too early.

Yes he was. I was there late August last summer. Planning to cruise for a couple of weeks around the same time this summer.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

I'm guess he focuses n the most crowded times, which are exactly in conflict with my travel plans to Block.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

As a result of 3 big storms during our 10 day cruise, I ended up with a more conservative itinerary:

Marion (mooring)
Cuttyhunk (mooring)
Newport (mooring)
Newport (mooring) (Tropical Storm)
Newport (mooring) (shoreside fun)
Potter Cove, Prudence I (anchor)
Bristol (dock) (Storm)
Bristol (dock) (reprovision, Herreshoff museum)
Third Beach, Aquidneck I (anchor)
Marion (mooring) (Storm)
Marion (mooring)

This was my girlfriend's longest cruise. After 3 big storms and a wild ride across RI Sound, my girlfriend is not only still talking to me, she still wants to go sailing. Win!

Have the Cuttyhunk outer mooring fields expanded or am I getting too conservative in my dotage? I couldn't find room to comfortably anchor our Bavaria 37 with 6' draft, and the inner anchorage was filled with only 2 boats.

The other locations were pretty much as others have described them, here and on ActiveCaptain.

Goodness, you did have a tough weather window. Great to hear how you made the best of it.

I don't think Cutty has expanded. I was there a couple of weeks back and the northern outside moorings weren't even installed yet. May have been the week prior to Andrea.

If we find ourselves anchoring, it is usually just north of the southern outside field. Grassy, may take a couple of shots, but works okay as long as a 180 shift or high winds aren't predicted.

Re: 10 days south of Cuttyhunk

Minnewaska: When you anchor at Cuttyhunk, are you north of the line between G9 and G5? I didn't want to anchor outside those markers because I was concerned about transiting vessels.

Pretty much right between them and as north as necessary to clear the mooring field. Not uncommon to see a dozen boats anchored there in the height of the summer. Very grassy, however. Transiting traffic not much of an issue, other than the occasional wake. Not much traffic through Canapitsit, so most traffic is arriving and departing from/to the north.
