All vessels transiting the west zone shall maintain a steady speed and not slow or stop in the zone.

      • East Zone:The east zone consists of waters of the Atlantic Ocean from Banyan Road in the north to Ocean View Road in the south and from shore to approximately 1,000 yards east. All vessels transiting the east zone shall maintain a steady speed and not slow or stop in the zone.

    • LNM: Inlet Channel Buoy 33 Relocated, Oregon Inlet, Pamlico Sound, NC

      As the first inlet into NC waters south of the Chesapeake, Oregon Inlet is very tempting to offshore cruisers. HOWEVER, Oregon Inlet is notorious for shoaling, keeping the USCG busy relocating ATONs. Cruisers Net recommends attempting navigation ONLY with shoal draft and good local knowledge.

      1. (513°19.0000N / 001°0.0000W, 513.316667 / -1.000000) THE FOLLOWING AID TO NAVIGATION HAS BEEN RELOCATED.

    • Hope for Abaco – Holiday Benefit Concert, Dec 14, Stuart, FL

      Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club

      A joyous way to support relief efforts for Abaco. If you cannot attend, please donate via links below. Our thanks to Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club, A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, for promoting this concert.

      Nippers AFTER Dorian
      Voted one of the top three beach bars in the Caribbean for 2019 by USA Today’s 10Best “Nippers Beach Bar and Grill” is an example of the devastation to Abaco left by Hurricane Dorian.

      Can’t attend? Please Donate!


      Why we are Hosting this Event

      On September 1, 2019 the eye of Hurricane Dorian passed through the Abaco islands in the Bahamas. Without bridges to other islands, and without any form of mass transportation, the people of Abaco had no way to evacuate and no where to run.

      Pounded by wind gusts that exceeded 200MPH, and a 23 foot storm surge, the islands were devastated. The loss of life and property is incomprehensible. Estimates are 80% of the property damage is not covered by insurance. Most lost everything they own and are now faced with the challenge of their lifetime, to rebuild on an island without basic resources like electricity and water.

      The people of Abaco need your help.

      Stepping up to help the people of Abaco is the headline act, the Barefoot Man. The Barefoot Man is uniquely qualified to donate his music as he has recorded more than 30 songs about Abaco where he has performed for twenty years.

      Charity Details

      The Hope for Abaco Holiday Benefit Concert™ is a Florida-registered charitable event run by the Hope For Abaco LLC (dba Hope For Abaco™), to raise money to help rebuild the Abaco Islands. 100% of the net proceeds will be donated. Donations made through ticket sales are deposited directly into an account managed by the Jamaican-American Bar Association who is the custodian of the funds for the Care Community Center Incorporated in Mirimar Florida, and registered 501(c)(3) charity since 2003.

      Special Thanks

      The Barefoot Man would like to thank Bill and Susan Humrich and Fred and Sharon Jasper for feeding the band, and Cayman Airways, one of our corporate sponsors, for providing transportation from Grand Cayman to this event.

      The event producers, Erich Sitko, Tony DeCristofaro, and P. Steve Calabria would also like to thank our growing list of corporate and fan sponsors. Our sponsors provide the financial backing to allow this event to happen. We ask everyone who supports the efforts to help the people of Abaco rebuild to review our list of corporate sponsors, visit their website, and to help give back by using their services/or products when possible.

      Businesses interested in becoming a corporate sponsor can get information from our Sponsorship Page.

    • AIWA E-News November 2019

      Cruisers Net is proud to be a member of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association whose lobbying work is crucial to keeping the Waterway navigable. Your membership dollars directly support their vital work. Please join and encourage your boating neighbors to do likewise, regardless of their homeport.

      Happy Thanksgiving
      We are Grateful for Our Supporters!

      Greetings E-News Subscribers,

      We would like to extend our thanks to you all — the members and supporters of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association. We are filled with gratitude following our successful 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting and a special thanks to the presenters and participants who gathered together to discuss issues affecting the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW).

      As I shared in my comments in Savannah, each of you carry an important VOICE of the Waterway and our mission is to serve the greater AIWW community by unifying that collective voice.
      Together we have

      1. The AIWA has worked over the past five years to secure funding and projects that has led to an over $50 million reduction in the Operations & Maintenance backlog for the AIWW while managing multiple hurricane impacts.

      2. We are building a strong coalition of Congressional support. In 2019, sixteen Congressional offices from six states joined a bipartisan, delegation letter asking for more funding that could be used for AIWW maintenance.

      3. In 2019, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has dredging projects occurring in every state along the waterway— the first time since the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the Stimulus Act).

      4. We represented the AIWW in meetings from New Jersey to Florida and presented at national and regional events all along the eastern seaboard focused on keeping the waterway a part of the national discussion.

      5. We worked with partners to extend our message. The American Shoreline Podcast Network joined us in Savannah and produced six podcasts while on-site in addition to two prior event episodes.  Here is a link to all the Live from the AIWA podcasts and more!

      We are proud of these accomplishments, yet there is more work to be done and we need your voice. If you are supportive of our efforts and want to see them strengthen and grow, we ask you to join or renew your membership to the AIWA. An individual membership is less than a dime $.10 a day, and an Associate membership is less than $1 a day. Please visit Join AIWA Today!

      With our gratitude,

      Brad Pickel
