Training on your boat

Captain Ed's Sailing 
 Mika and I have been living on the Sarah Maria for over a month now, only going home in Deerfield to check mail, and do laundry. Once you are living on a boat you have to be there to maintain the systems, (ice box), so that the milk, eggs, and beer don't go bad.
 Besides it's fun, I love getting up in the morning with a little alone time from Mika the Wonder Dog, as I make a pot of coffee, some bacon and eggs, or a bowl of Cheerios.
 This past week has been slow with the rain, Ed McCormack took his family out on a family sailing charter, and ended up sailing out to the isle Of Shoals.
  My free time has been devoted to cleaning both of the boats and making the Sarah Maria more livable.
 This week is home coming week in Newburyport, with everything going on I will be around town hopefully towards the end of the week since Monday and Tuesday I will be bringing a 27ft C&C down from Portland, Maine to Newburyport as a training delivery.
 They will be firing off the fire works on August 4th.
 I am planning classes on Friday as well as Saturday and Sunday. Give me a call if you are interested in either a sailing class or a Family Learn to Sail Charter.
 Captain Ed's Sailing gets more popular each year, however there are always great weekends as well as weekdays available.
  At the end of the day you walk away from the boat and leave the cost of owning and maintaining the boat up to me.
  Please, please, please I beg of thee if you are coming sailing with us TAKE  SEA SICK MEDICATION. I can not stress this enough, you cannot believe how sick you can get.

  Call or email to reserve your spot for this summer.

Things to do after sailing with 

       Captain Ed's Sailing


  A day sailing on the Bella Donna will take up to 6 hours of your time, at the end of the day, if you still have some energy, there is still plenty of other things to do around Newburyport.


 There are plenty of restaurants around town, such as the Grog, Michaels, The Black Cow, and Loretta's, restaurants. A great place to grab a Sandwich before a sailing trip is at the Warren street market

   Out towards Plum Island you will find Bob's Lobster. 

Make a trip more exciting on your way out to Bob's Lobster by renting an EZ pedal bike from EZ Pedaler of Newburyport

  If you are looking for a place to stay while in the area my client's have stayed at the Essex Street Inn,  The Blue out on Plum Island, as well as The Garrison Inn , and the The Compass Rose Inn

 We live in a great area to try out some salt water fishing as well. For short days I like Channel Edge Charters, or Flounder Fishing, from the Captains Lady . For Longer excursions check out The Clipper Fleet in Salisbury or again the Captains Lady out on Plum Island.
