Captain Ed's Sailing 


This past Black Friday was a beautiful day, instead of shopping, I climbed  on the boats and ran electrical cords and charged my batteries. I don't have any where to put them, plus I don't like taking them out of the boat, so a few times through the winter I will spend a few hours charging batteries and doing maintenance. 

 While on the Sarah Maria I grabbed all of my charts, and have brought them home.

I am going to add parts of my previous trips using parts of my old logs to create virtual sailing trips. Click here for a virtual trip to the Isle of Shoals

  Folks ask me what I do this time of year. Each year has been different from picking up handyman jobs to living on my boat in Hilton Head, South Carolina, off and on. This year I am going to concentrate on perfecting my guitar, why I can't explain, it is an obsession 

 Just about 15 years ago I met EJ Ouellette and told him that I wanted to quit my job to play my guitar and sail boats. So far I have not done that bad I did quite a bit of sailing however I did not find enough time to work on my music. 

 I am also going to find the time to visit my brother Franks art studio, '(Eyeformation)' located in the Joannes fabric building 122 Western Avenue, downtown Lowell. They are having open studios both Saturdays and Sundays the first two week ends of December. This would be a great way to shop local.

 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 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.
