Hi folks - newbie here.
I did a search of all forums
here but haven't come up with any info.
I crew for a buddy on annual cruises. He's an Annapolis
based live-aboard, previously on a Pearson
424, now on a Bavaria
47. Generally he ventures out for the month of August, typically to New England
, although some recent trips include Bermuda
and an extended trip to the Carribean.
Typical pattern is to aim to be in a larger port each weekend to accommodate crew changes, since most of us are working stiffs that can only get away for a week, two max. The system has worked very well.
Last year's trip got as far north as Halifax
, and stops down the NS coast from there before returing to the States in Maine
. We all loved each and every stop in Canada
. We want to return this year, except time logistics work against the main aim of exploring Bras d'Or and northern Nova Scotia
. Therefore we are considering chartering a boat for the trip. A quick web search has not turned up anything - does anybody have a source for a bareboat charter
available, most likely from Halifax
I would presume? We'd be looking for a 2 or 3 week period, late summer, with accommodations for 6 +/-.
Great forum, any leads appreciated.
