We picked a great day, almost no wind but it was a bit foggy on our way over, left at about 8:30AM. We left from Osterville used Navionics automatic route, worked out well. It did seem to send us around some shoals but I see most boats just take a direct route. We got a mooring at Oak Bluffs and took the launch in. No charge for the mooring, $8 a head roundtrip for the launch. All real easy. I am still learning but this was a lot of fun.
