Traveling the ICW
Many boaters have wanted to, or plan to, travel the East Coast Intra-Coastal Waterway at some point in time. One of our partners, Larry Rutter, had the opportunity to do so aboard a 46' Albin in November 2010, and told the tale of the trip through blogs and videos. You can read the story here, told day by day of the trip. A thoroughly great trip, in which he only wishes he could have taken longer as the ports of call deserve far more than an evening arrival, dinner and drinks and a dawn departure. Make sure to click on the links to read the story and see the videos.
DAY ONE New York to Cape May
DAY TWO Cape May to Norfolk
DAY THREE Norfolk to CoinJock, NC
DAY FOUR Coinjock to Beaufort, NC
DAY FIVE Beaufort, NC to Southport NC (Cape Fear)
DAY SIX Southport, NC, to Harbour Town (Hilton Head)
DAY SEVEN Harbour Town, SC, to St. Augustine, FL
DAY EIGHT St. Augustine to Ft. Pierce
DAY NINE Ft. Pierce to Delray Beach
DAY TEN Delray Beach to Lighthouse Point.
It was a great trip, and learned a lot along the way. Met some great people as you do when on the water, enjoyed wonderful dinners in ports along the way, and hopefully remember some of the lessons learned. If you are planning to make the trip or are just curious, give Larry a call 401-338-3554, he'll be glad to fill you in on some of the many details that didn't make it into the story.
