Cruising North?

 

With the long 2018 winter now finally looking like spring, “snowbird cruisers” are preparing for the annual migration from the Bahamas, Florida and Caribbean to the mid-Atlantic, Northeastern coastal states, Canada and the Great Lakes.


Among this writer’s favorite New England coastal locations is my hometown of Gloucester, Massachusetts. For over 400 years, since 1606 when the French explorer Champlain came into the harbor and dubbed it “le beau port”, seafarers and recreational mariners have been enjoying the waters and the vistas in this seaside city.

 


If your passage north takes you to Cape Ann and into “le beau port” make sure you take note of Ten Pound Island as you approach the Blynman Bridge and entrance to the Annisquam River. (Northern most section of the ICW) The island was made famous by Winslow Homer’s iconic painting “Breezing Up”. Make sure your tour of Cape Ann gets you to Essex the home of the “fried clam”, a local delicacy.

 


Listed below are just a few of the navigation aids to help you have a safe and enjoyable summer cruising season. Call us if you need help with your passage plans or a recommendation for a lobster dinner location.
