Our tentative two-week cruise plan for ASA 108 – Offshore Passage Making is to sail non-stop from our marina to a location in New England which may be Newport, RI or Martha’s Vineyard, MA or from our marina to Beaufort, NC. We will then have a brief layover before making the return passage to our marina. The weather forecast will determine the final destination.
