Event Description

With Spring in the air and boating season close behind, your members might like to be reminded of this summer's Fundy Flotilla, which since 1999 has provided an escorted way for New England boaters to cruise from Maine to our nearby neighbors in the Canadian Maritimes. The dates for this summer's cruise are Aug. 14-28, and the destination will be the St. John River in New Brunswick, with shorter visits at Cutler, Grand Manan, and St. Andrews. The cruise leaves from Northeast Harbor and returns at Eastport.

The Fundy Flotilla is one of the activities put on by Points East Magazine to encourage New England boaters to use their boats more and to stretch their boating horizons. Other such activities are the annual spring Crew Match parties and the workshops and seminars conducted during the off-season.

I'm the organizer of the cruise, and I hope you'll take the time to post the attached information on your club's bulletin board or in your newsletter. I realize many clubs aren't open yet, and therefore the easiest way of getting the word out may be just with a short blurb in your newsletter. Just the dates and the itinerary would be sufficient:

Fundy Flotilla, Aug. 14-28
Northeast Harbor, Cutler
Grand Manan, St. John River, St. Andrews

If you've cruised to New Brunswick, Canada, you know the joys of the experience. If you haven't done so yet, here's what cruising guide author Roger Duncan has written:
“Lots of American yachtsmen talk about going to Saint John, and many have been there; but no great number actually make it in any one year, so the hospitality of the Saint John yachting community is not abused and their eagerness is so far undimmed. Besides, anyone who will bring a yacht from Massachusetts or Connecticut through the tortuous channels of Maine and by the tide-scoured, fog-ridden coast of New Brunswick in the sure knowledge that he will probably have to beat all the way back again – such a man will represent the best of New England Yachtsmen and will be welcome wherever he goes.”

Thank you in advance for your consideration in helping me publicize this opportunity for your members to experience the joys of cruising to new ports of call with Points East's Fundy Flotilla. It's a way to not only see new places and meet new people, it's also a way to make new friends and expand one's horizon

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
