Minnehaha Cruises New England

We were fortunate to join owners Doug and Deb aboard HH55-01 Minnehaha earlier this month for a week long cruise in New England - the quintessential American yachting destination. We joined the boat in Sag Harbor and made our way to Martha's Vineyard, with stops in Greenport, Montauk, Block Island and Cuttyhunk along the way. Light winds prevailed, so the few times we were able to raise sails the sailing was calm and relaxing. The anchorages and quaint ports we visited were spectacular; we swam, paddleboarded, rode bikes, hiked, shopped and enjoyed beautiful meals together. In Cuttyhunk we crossed paths with the New York Yacht Club summer cruise, 150 of the club's members cruising together for a week to iconic New England destinations. Minnehaha's big sister, HH66-03 Nala, was among the boats participating, and owners and crew spent the evening together visiting one another's boats and getting acquainted over pain killers and sailing stories. We bid Minnehaha adieu in Martha's Vineyard, and Doug and Deb continued on to Nantucket. We'll catch up with Minnehaha again next month, when she makes her world debut at the Newport International Boat Show.
