Captain Ed's Sailing 
  Last weekend the great weather never materialized, that's the problem with October the weather looks good for the weekend then a day passes, and with it the favorable weather report. I kind of new what was happening as I follow the weather each day on, but I also had high hopes that it would change for the better. 

It looks as though this weekend coming will be cold and damp as well, however I have classes scheduled for both Saturday as well as Sunday this week end as well as next. 

 Believe it or not this is Columbus Day weekend. I plan to bring the Sarah Maria to the dock for this coming weekend.

 I have moved back to my apartment on the farm in Deerfield. Because it is to dark, to early at night, and getting on a wet dingy to take Mika to Shore in the morning is not fun.   

 By going to the town dock for the next couple of weekends I can have some heat and can easily take Mika for his walks. If you are around Newburyport this coming weekend come down to the dock and visit. Call me at 508-451-0431and I will look for you. I am going to try to sail the Bella Donna early each day, if the weather permits, I don't want to sound like a baby, but it is getting cold out there. If you have bought sailing classes and we don't get to them this year you can use the next year since there is no expiration date on any purchased classes.

 Make sure you check my newsletter throughout the fall and winter as I plan to post some virtual sailing trips, using past trips, as well as a section on figuring out the weather. Also look for discounts on giving sailing lessons as gifts this Christmas holiday.

 Thanks again for reading my newsletters

   I want to again thank everyone for their support of Captain Ed's Sailing if it is even just through reading my news letters.

Thanks Captain Ed's Sailing

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.
 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.
 Call or email to reserve your spot for this summer.  508-451-0431  Captain Ed's Sailing

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.
