I’m back and looking for virtual crew members to join the crew of Still Waters II on her Down East Loop Adventure.
The crew has successfully worked their way up the east coast and are currently in Cape May, New Jersey. They now sit less than one week out from launching their Down East Loop adventure which will start once they arrive in New York City.
You may be wondering though, What is the Down East Loop?
The short answer is that the Down East Loop is approximately a 2,700 mile adventure. The crew will leave New York City and head north on the Hudson River. At Waterford, New York, they will cruise the Champlain Canal to Lake Champlain, then the Chambly Canal to the St Lawrence Seaway.
Once on the Seaway, they will make a right turn and cruise out and around New Brunswick. The crew will take the Northumberland Strait between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. After rounding Nova Scotia, the crew will cross back to the United States to Maine.
They will then work their way south back to Cape Cod, then west along Long Island Sound and return back to New York City to complete the Loop. They hope to return to New York City some time in late September.
I will re-start my weekly updates starting next Sunday, May 26th, chronicling the travels, challenges, and history of the waters that Still Waters II and crew cruise.
Hope to see you back on board as virtual crew members and hope you enjoy the cruise.
