Barnaget to Onset, Massachusetts

31 May 2016
Leaving Barnaget in the fog was a bit of go but we left and started to head north again with a tail wind. The saying “fair winds and following sea” was not made up by someone who owned an Endeavour as we rolled our guts out pretty much all the way to Buzzard’s Bay. Most if was also in the fog. We definitely are getting closer to home. Longs sleeves rubber boots and wool sweaters for everyone!! Water temperature has gone from 30C to 14C in less than two weeks! Tilley doesn’t know what to make of it as he shed his “winter coat” back in Hopetown. Our original goal was Cuttyhunk as Tom’s father Bill had told us it was his favorite spot to cruise, but as we got closer we realized that it was going to be very foggy and cold way down at the south of the bay. Turned out we were at the right tide to ride in towards the Cape Cod canal so we decided to use this to get to Onset where I figured there wouldn’t be fog. I was getting worried as we actually went the entire way into the mouth of the canal with less than 1/8 mile of visibility but as we made the turn into the channel to get to Onset the sun started to peak out and by the time we had made the rest of the run it was clear and sunny! Spent the night on the town moorings there and decided to stay one more night to wait for the good weather window to jump directly across to Shelburne. The pic is the boys being look outs entering the cape cod canal in poor visibility.
