September Southern Cruise

Proposed itinerary.  Input encouraged.

I have a fixed plan to arrive in Hyannis Friday afternoon at the Hyannis yacht club to race to Nantucket on Saturday and likely back on Sunday.  My return trip often gets delayed a day due to weather.  All are welcome to register for the race, or you might want to enjoy more time on Nantucket and could head directly there on Friday.
