Ryan and Rob sail to the middle of Nantucket Sound

At the southeast corner of Horseshoe Shoals stands a weather tower where the wind died and we were forced to paddle 5 n.m. home to Cotuit Bay. When I put my hand in the water up to my elbow I could no longer see my fingers for the green brown blooming algae. I vow in five years to reduce the nutrient loading so that I may forever see my fingers in these ocean waters during the warmest months. Algal Green Slime Busters to action.
