We had a blistering sail here from Nantucket including a brief overnight stop anchored off Cuttyhunk. The sea was calm and with 15kts of wind on the beam we averaged >7kts nearly all the way.
Fisher Island is very quiet and peaceful with only 200 permanent residents. Apparently although it's very close to Connecticut it is technically in New York State......very confusing.
Our plan is to make a short sail tomorrow to New London on the River Thames (pronounced "fame" locally) where we intend to visit a major chandler to spend all our savings on lots of boat bits including another new dinghy (the last one is falling apart after only 2 years of UV), additional refrigeration and a very large solar panel.
