August Weekend Cruise
Saturday 8/13 - 8/14/2022
Weekend cruise in or around Buzzards Bay, overnighting on Saturday night.
This year Jean & Nancy Leblanc, our August cruise captains, would like you to join them for this cruise to Tarpaulin Cove on the south side of Naushon island. Tarpaulin Cove is a beautiful cove with nice beaches, some history and a great place to watch shooting starts. The anchorage is wide and holding is good.
The cruise is planned to start from Mattapoisett harbor Friday August 12th with a return to your home harbor Sunday the 14th. But as always you can leave when convenient for you and join us there. There are two ways to get there.
Our first choice is to sail through Woods Whole and the second choice is to go through Quicks Hole. In both cases, in order to work with the currants, planning the crossing will be important. As we get closer to the date specific information for both crossings will be provided. Crossing at the right time will also provide favorable currants in the Vineyard Sound to help you get to the destination.
Specific information on winds and currents will be provide as we get closer to the date.
If the winds are not favorable for anchoring in Tarpaulin Cove (South or Southeast), we will divert to Menemsha on the Western part of Martha’s Vineyard. Menemsha is a quaint fishing village with beautiful beaches, amazing sunsets and the well-known Larsen Fish Market that got a great facelift over this past winter.
