  • Groundings at AICW/Shallotte Inlet Intersection, Problem Stretch Statute Mile 330


    With two recent groundings at this AICW Problem Stretch, we are upgrading these reports to a Nav Alert. Until dredging is done, slow speed and mid to high tide is recommended for this intersection. Thank you Michael and Ken for sharing these incidents and SSECN is glad neither of you sustained damage in the grounding, other than your pride!

    Coming south 16Aug16 at +1′ above low. Draw 4′. At idle speed ran hard aground in mid-channel just past green buoy. C-Map charting [updated Sep15] shows channel angles sharply toward red at the green buoy — should have followed its suggestion. My mistake was to “stay mid-channel.” The bottom raised VERY quickly, almost a wall. After backing off, saw above 10′ in area on line between reds.
    Michael Loy

    We were also headed south through this stretch on August 14. We draw 3 feet. Just past the green we also ran hard aground. We were in the channel toward the red side as recommended, but not quite on the line between the two reds. There was no warning on the depth meter before it was too late. We were able to get off eventually using bow and stern thrusters and some wakes from passing small boats. We didn’t incur damage except to our equanimity.

  • Sail to the Sun Cruising Seminar, October 10, Annapolis, MD

    Captain Wally Moran is an experienced Intracoastal Waterway cruiser and is well qualified to host his annual Sail to the Sun ICW Rally.

    The 2016 Sail to the Sun ICW Rally is very pleased to announce the premiere Sail to the Sun Cruising Seminar, to be held during the Annapolis Sailboat Show. Recognizing that sailors and cruisers both need and are actively looking for reliable information to make their voyages easier, safer and more enjoyable, Sail to the Sunʼs founder, Wally Moran, has set up a day long seminar event with top notch speakers.
    Read More

    Leading off the list is Lin Pardey, who needs no introduction. Lin and Larryʼs mantra – go small, go simple, go now – is well known by all cruisers and has led thousands of us to untie the lines and head out. Lin will discuss offshore sailing from the point of view of the ʻnew to offshoreʼ cruiser. Of course, being Lin, there will be lots of excellent ideas for old salts as well, making this a must see seminar for everyone.
    New cruisers often wonder how to make that onboard partnership work in practice. Enter Captains Jeff and Jean Grossman, of Two Can Sail. Jeff and Jean discuss the cruising partnership and what works, plus what makes it better with tips and ideas on blue and pink chores, and who is actually running the ship – the admiral or the captain –
    or both. Their enlightening and entertaining advice has been welcomed by thousands of cruisers old and new.
    Even long time cruisers worry about crossing the Gulf Stream on their way to the Bahamas. Captain Dave Skolnick, past president of the Seven Seas Cruising Association and a long time delivery captain, has the techniques youʼll need for a smooth passage to these beautiful islands. Dave is also reputed to be an awesome onboard cook, and youʼll have the chance to ask him for his favorite recipes during the Roundtable Q&A session.
    If youʼve ever wanted to know how to set your anchor for that perfect nightʼs sleep, Dr. Greg Knutson, founder of Mantus Anchors and a cruiser himself, will guide you on the best practices for anchoring so that you wake up in the same place you went to sleep. Cary Wiener, of Pantaenius Insurance, will discuss yacht insurance, including insuring your vessel for a trip to Cuba should cruising to that island paradise be part of your plans.
    Dave Gillespie, of Cruising World, will be discussing cruising in the Bahamas. His talk will include how to cruise the Abacos and the Exumas, including the best anchorages and cays, where to anchor and the unique adventures you can enjoy in each location.
    Long time cruiser and writer and ICW expert Wally Moran will speak on cruising the ICW, that unavoidable first big step on an east coast cruisersʼ trip to Paradise. His seminar is full of tips and techniques designed to assist you in experiencing an enjoyable, comfortable and safe trip down the ʻDitchʼ.
    Following these information filled seminars, there will be a Roundtable Q&A session where you can ask any of the speakers your own questions. With the breadth and depth of knowledge at the table, you can be sure to get the answer youʼre seeking.
    Lunch will be served, and there will be a social session with refreshments after the Roundtable session.
    This event will be held at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, 723 2nd St. Annapolis Maritime Museum, Annapolis, on Monday, October 10 from 9 – 5. To purchase tickets, click through to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sail-to-the-suncruising-seminar-tickets-26973144401.
