I left Boston on Monday. Cape Cod bay was pretty rough on the way to the canal. I forgot how beat up and worn out it makes you. Fueled up in Sandwich. The canal was smooth, as was Buzzards Bay surprisingly. Made it to a small marina in Westport by late afternoon. Gassed, and docked for the night. Since my plan was/is to make it to Mystic CT, I’m going across RI, and Block Island sound..since conditions both turned snotty, I decided to retreat back east a few miles to a port with more civilization to either wait it out, or head back home. So, now I’m on my third night in Fairhaven New Bedford. A new place for me and very historic. I really don’t want to turn back, even though I’ve got a decent amount of time on the water. If the prediction of 2-3’ seas holds out for the weekend, I’ll suck it up, and shoot across RI sound, in to Long Island sound, where it’s been nothing but calm 1’ Seas. Definitely hit Mystic, and the more I look..NY city doesn’t look too far out of the question either.
