Cuttyhunk Island

The picture above was taken aboard the Madness in our our sailing cruise from Padanaram Village to Cuttyhunk Island, on of the 1,000 Great Places in Massachusetts.

Cuttyhunk Island is the outermost of the Elizabeth Islands, a chain extending southeast from the Falmouth, lying to the northwest of Martha’s Vineyard. The island has a land area of just under one square mile with a population of 52 persons as of the 2000 census, holding the majority of the population of the town of Gosnold.

In 1602 English explorer Bartholomew Gosnold gave the island its current name.
