Quissett Harbor, a little slice of heaven

The last few days have consisted of a large dosing of sunshine, cape sand, and salt water. All courtesy of a spot called Quissett harbor, and “The Knob” in Falmouth. Just up the coast from the Buzzards Bay side of Woods Hole Passage is the fantastic Quissett Harbor. Lined with beautiful coast, and home to a large fleet (30 plus) of H class day sailors, there aren’t many spots more quintessentially Cape Cod. The entrance to the harbor is marked by a large rock lined outcropping called simply “The Knob”. This is the end of the line for the several paths in the Cornelia Cary conservation area that makes up most of the seaboard side of the harbor. Dogs are allowed and we’ve gotten both the furry children tuckered out on the paths and beaches. We even got in a nice afternoon of paddling and swimming as well. All in all the last few days have us dreaming of an H Class Doughdish of our own to get in on the Wednesday and Saturday racing action during the summer, as well as lazy afternoon sails. If you want to learn a bit more about this wonderful small boat, check out the blog “Take the Tiller” located here.

Anyways, here are quite a few more of my feeble attempts at real maritime photography!

  2. I can’t believe that I just now saw this beautiful piece! Thanks for the shout out for Take the Tiller – I appreciate it very much. I’m enjoying your blog, as well! Driving a tugboat – wow! We race with the Quissett fleet and just had our Championship racing there last summer. It was a great weekend – nothing like seeing a starting line with 35 H-12s vying for a spot!
