  • FEC RR Bridge in Jacksonville NOW OPEN, St. Johns River

    This cantankerous railway bridge in the heart of Jacksonville has been locked down since November 14, but repairs have been completed (for now!) and navigation can return to normal. See Lockdown of FEC RR Bridge in Jacksonville, November 14-21, 2014, St. Johns River.
    This good news article by Joe Daraskevich in the Florida Times Union comes to us from our good friends Chuck Baier and Susan Landry of Beach House Publications

    Boat traffic on the St. Johns River was free to pass at the Florida East Coast Railway bridge Thursday for the first time in almost a week.
    The bridge was raised at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, more than a day earlier than the railway company expected.

    The railway beside the Acosta Bridge has a counterweight that normally keeps the deck raised unless a train is crossing but it had to be lowered over the last week while the company completed repairs, preventing boat traffic from passing through on the river.

    The bridge was lowered Nov. 14 about 8 a.m. and was supposed to be down until 6 p.m. Friday.

  • Deep Keel Vessel Needs Your Advice

    This question is unusual, not because of Skipper Aigeltinger’s concern for Waterway depths, but because of his vessel’s 7ft 3inch draft. Whether that draft is fin keel or full keel, that is a lot of draft with which to confront the shallow spots in North Carolina. He has access to our listing of NC Problem Stretches, but is asking for your input into his decision to attempt the ICW from Norfolk to Beaufort, NC, which, fortunately for him, is north of all the Inlet/ICW intersections further south.

    I am considering delivering a 44 ft sailboat from the Chesapeake to Florida. Draft is 7 ft 3 in. Would like to know if anyone knows if it’s possible to get that from Norfolk to Beaufort in the ICW ? Or if anyone could direct me to a source for that info.
    Thanks, Ed Aigeltinger

  • Channel Restrictions Underway, Portsmouth, VA, near Statute Mile Zero

    The Midtown Tunnel area is just north of Mile Zero and Scott Creek. These channel restrictions will most likely NOT affect cruiser passage.

    VA – NORFOLK – ELIZABETH RIVER – CHANNEL RESTRICTIONS
    SKW Constructors will conduct trial maneuvering operations for the Midtown Tunnel construction project from 17-21 and 24-26 NOV 2014. These operations will involve equipment that will impact the available width of the federal channel. The trial maneuvering operations will occur on the Portsmouth side of the channel, between the edge of the channel and the Portsmouth shoreline. Operations will take place between the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
    During the maneuvering operations, equipment may block up to half the width of the federal channel. In the event a vessel needs more than half the width of the channel, the vessel shall provide at least 30 minutes notice to allow SKW to move its equipment. Vessels on scene include the KENNY O lay barge, as well as 2 assist tug boats. Vessels on scene will be monitoring VHF Channels 13 and 16 at all times. Information about this project was released as a Broadcast Notice to Mariners on November 12, 2014.
    The primary field point of contact for this work is Terry Cronk, (757) 434-2625, with secondary field contact Ron Meyer, (908) 4630-4418. For any other questions or information, contact Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads Waterways Management Division, (757) 668-5580, email HamptonRoadsWaterway@uscg.mil. Chart 12253 LNM: 46/14

  • ARC Caribbean Completed, 11/17/2014

    For all our sailing friends: the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) is an annual Atlantic sailing event for cruiser yachts held since 1986. The ARC Caribbean 1500 fleet sails from Portsmouth, VA at the mouth the Chesapeake Bay to Nanny Cay on Tortola. Follow the fleet via the website links below…and dream a little!

    Subject: CORSAIR RESULTS
    Hey Winston…. Results are in…. After much “discussion” about the virtue of a race versus a rally…. The results were announced on Saturday afternoon. CORSAIR participated in Class A with 12 other boats. Corsair was second in her class after adjusting for motoring times. Cricket Clifton, the only woman aboard, won for the “biggest bruise”. (photos of that are available but not included in this post…) Lastly, and most importantly, the “Spirit of the Caribbean 1500 Race” was also awarded to CORSAIR!! This exemplifies the one boat that is best at sailing, preparation, seamanship, and camaraderie . We are very proud of them.
    We are off to explore the BVIs today. I’ll try to stay in touch. Stay warm our in Colorado!! Thanks for following and highlighting Corsair on the Cruiser’s Net Website. Be well.

    The crew finished the many miles from the Chesapeake Bay to Tortola… Looks like they are happy to be in Nanny Cay. More than 10 boats have yet to arrive due to extremely variable and sometimes non-existent winds.. Thanks for your support and good cheer.

    Hi All, We have 654 nm to go to the finish line. It was a busy night. The AIS function on all the boats out here is acting crazy. Coast Guard warned mariners that the recent huge solar flare was causing problems with the AIS systems. not a real problem here, just annoying. We had some heavy rain squalls that killed the wind and we had to motor another 4 hours. Next the bilge pump started cycling way to often. Discovered salt walter was getting in the boat. After an hour of work at 04:00 last night we found the source was the anchor locker. The bilge pump in there was off, we had taken so much water over the bow the locker was filling and this was slowly leaking into the main bilge. All is well now, we are celebrating passing the half way point with rum cake for lunch.
    Love Tom or Dad

    Couldn’t resist sharing the latest from CORSAIR…. Looks like they caught a big 30 pound mahi mahi, but lost 45 minutes from the race!! Sure looks beautiful. This is Colin Curtis, one of the capable crew. Hopefully, the weather will hold. Anne was trying to post the photo on the CORSAIR Facebook page. We wish them well…

    We continue to make progress though it is painfully slow. We did manage to sail for about 90 minutes around and through a local squall line. We are going to continue a little more easterly until about 11 pm then we will set a course direct to Tortola. At the turn we will have about 425 miles to the finish if we do not have to tack later. Everyone had a quick shower today, spirits are up and we smell a lot better. Cricket is making us a chicken dish and fresh asparagus for dinner. We have chilled a bottle of white wine and will enjoy a movie after dinner. We feel bad for some of the smaller boats that are really far behind. There will probably be some very late finishes. Since we started a day late all the parties at Nanny will be a day late. Love to all from the crew.

This publication is the culmination of an unprecedented collaboration on red tide research in the Gulf of Mexico led by the FWC’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) and funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
