Cuttyhunk June 12

We left Wakefield, RI and encountered a Rolex sponsored, New York Yacht Club Regatta that was sailing around Jamestown Island.  Then on our way to Cuttyhunk, MA the fog rolled in.  The radar, supported by GPS and a sharp lookout got us to Cuttyhunk safely.  At one point a sailboat anchored outside the harbor seemed to just appear out of the mist.

Cuttyhunk is like a step into the past.  There are no actual restaurants, one market and a gift shop.  It was small enough to explore on foot and after the fog lifted, the sun came out.

From there we headed to Menemsha, Martha’s Vineyard.  We picked up a mooring in the commercial fishing harbor.  We biked out to Gay Head and the lighthouse and today took the bus into Vineyard Haven to pick up more supplies.  We seem to spend a lot of time provisioniing.   We were blowing fuses in the solar panels and it turns out the fuses were too small!  That was easy to fix.  Apparently when we finally had sunny days, we were generating too much current.  It shows how cloudy this trip has been if it has only become a problem the past few days.
