Not familiar with that reef. Have approached both from the south or north of Nashawena Is. from Nantucket via Quick’s Hole depending on wind direction

I would go through Quicks Hole and approach Cuttyhunk from the NE.

If I understand the question.

Re: BEST APPROACH TO CUTTYHUNK FROM NANTUCKET

It depends... on weather and tide. The Sow & Pigs is not exactly a nasty hazard, they are well marked and easily avoided. If a typical afternoon SE wind, I would go around the south. From Nantucket, south of Nomans Land on a beam reach and then bear away to clear the S&P.

Watch your predicted currents so you know which way you are going to be set, and lay a course to compensate at the START of the leg.
