As you round Brant Point to enter the heart of Nantucket you can’t help but notice all the lovely sailboats that are moored in the harbor. The colors are strikingly beautiful against the calm blue water, which is why I couldn’t resist snapping a few pics of these lovely vessels. There is something really exciting to be out at sea with the wind billowing in the sails and the waves crashing against the bow. Next time you visit the island, you may want to consider booking a late afternoon (around 4:00 p.m.) sailing adventure. If you go on a clear day – you just might be lucky enough to watch a lovely sunset around the Smith Point / Madaket area and you will probably learn a few interesting historical facts along the way.
