Looking to making that hop sometime next week as well. Nantucket
Sound to Shellburne. Right now it looks like Wednesday and Thursday are a bit windy, but $1.50 and a 5 day weather prediction will buy you a cup of coffee.
If this forecast
holds (and I can get to Hyannis by then in reasonable wind, at Pt. Judith now, seeing a lot of easterlies the next couple of days.) I'll likely plan on heading out Thursday, deal with the higher winds and ride the declining wind through Friday.
My advise is be ready to go as the rough time to depart gets closer (and the forecasts solidify). Check the surface, 500 mb, 24, 48 and 96 hour charts
from NOAA and compare them to the forecasts. Helps to see what is happening and a great way to learn how to make your own predictions from the data.
