Captain Ed's Sailing 
  Both the Bella Donna and the Sarah Maria are now out of the water for the season, the weather has just not been cooperating very well. With the wind coming out of the North and East the mouth of the Merrimack River has been rough as well. I had a real tricky delivery last Wednesday as I brought a clients boat up from Salem Ma. When I reached the mouth of the river there were 4 to 10 ft breaking seas along the whole bar and the Coast Guard was sitting there discouraging me from bringing the boat through. 

 With darkness coming and nowhere else to go I had to cross the bar anyway. 

  That is showing me that summer is over and we are just picking our days, and unless I get a boat delivery somewhere good I am done sailing for the season.

 I will be spending the next few weeks getting both boats ready for next year and plan to have them back in the water for May 1st.

Captain Ed's Sailing was  very successful this year with just about 50 days of sailing under our belts, and meeting and sailing with many great people. I want to again thank all of you for your support. 

 What I could use though is some pictures that I can use in my newsletters. If you have a picture that I could use that would be great I would like to change up some of my images. 

 Also keep an eye open for my new value saving discount coupons for the holiday season.


  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

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.

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.
