This dance was written in following a wonderful boat ride to Nantucket Island. The dance goes with Teetotaler's, if it is not possible to use the title tune. Also try Mitton's Hornpipe in a medley.
Needs room along the set.
Larry Jennings notes that a "Nantucket sleigh ride" is a whaler's dory being towed by a whale.
