Coast of Summer

Though he moved back to England in 1971, Bailey & his wife Margot return to the U.S. nearly every summer to cruise the New England Coast. Here Bailey ( Inside Passage: The Outer Banks ) gives an engaging account of their 1991 cruise in Lochinvar , a 27-foot fiberglass boat. He sets out on a shakedown voyage from his home port of Stonington, Conn., to some old haunts in Long Island Sound. In August, he & Margot head northeast to Block Island, the Elizabeth Islands, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket & Cape Cod, stopping at boatyards, towns, coves & beaches. On this leisurely cruise, they visit old friends, swim & walk the beaches. Homeward bound, they encounter Hurricane Bob, but only after Lochinvar is safely tied down & they are ashore.
