Sailing the Canal

A beautiful evening for a sail along the Cape Cod Canal. The Cape Cod Canal is an artificial waterway in the state of Massachusetts connecting Cape Cod Bay to the north with Buzzards Bay to the south. The canal is part of the Atlantic Intercostal Waterway, the approximately 7 mile long canal traverses the narrow neck of land joining Cape Cod to the state’s mainland. Most of its length follows tidal rivers widened to 480 feet and deepened to 32 feet at mean low water, shaving 135 miles off the journey around the Cape for its approximately 14,000 annual users.
