Menemsha Pond?

Postby Riki » Sat Jun 17, 2017 7:49 am

We sailed to Martha's Vineyard last weekend and were initially planning on anchoring inside Menemsha Pond (online literature suggested this was possible), but when we got there a call to the HarborMaster suggested that wasn't a good plan because of a shoal near the RN4. Has anyone anchored recently inside the pond (not the harbor)? Our draft is 5'6". We ended up anchoring outside in Menemsha Bight and it ended up being a very rocky night - good holding ground, but constant rolling first from wind, then from swells. What's your preferred anchoring spot on Martha's Vineyard? Thanks for any input.
