With Tioga back in the US this summer, we got the next Labor Day trip to Cuttyhunk organized. This great little island with less than 50 year-round residents lies between Padanaram and Martha’s Vineyard and marks the entrance to Buzzard’s Bay. It is about a 15 hour sail from Nahant and usually involves motoring through the Cape Code Canal.
The crew of A Family Affair (Ulf, Rosmarie and Jasper) met up with Tioga and crew (Philip, Corinna, Nick, Lauren, Mia and Thea) outside of New Bedford, while Lois (Henry, Jen and Blue) motored via Martha’s Vineyard to Cuttyhunk. Josh and Ellen sailed from Nahant via Provincetown and Bob sailed Boomerang with Samy directly from Nantucket to Cuttyhunk.
By the middle of the day, we had sufficient moorings secured to make it through the weekend. Unfortunately, the crew of Saoirse (Dan, Candace, Peter, Linda and Ellen) had engine trouble and could not make it through the Cape Cod Canal.
Anyways, a lot of fun was had by all and we will do it again next Labor Day weekend.
