Itinerary

_____________________________________________________________________

SUNDAY, JULY 23

Collins Bay to Lyons Island, Adolphus Reach (20 nautical miles)

Dennis and Norma Reed (Innisfree) have kindly invited participants to anchor off beautiful waterside property near Lyons Island and enjoy some time ashore. A barbecue will be available ashore: bring your own meat and one potluck item.

 

MONDAY, JULY 24

Lyons Island to Picton (8 nautical miles)

Overnight at Prince Edward Yacht Club.  PEYC can receive up to 12 boats, the larger ones on mooring balls. There is currently no power on the docks. The fee is $25 per boat. The stores in Picton are a great place to stock up on forgotten provisions!  

 

TUESDAY, JULY 25

Picton to Sandy Cove (23 nautical miles)

Sandy Cove is not labelled on charts, but is located just east of Massasauga Point, on the County about 2 miles east of Belleville. In the event of bad weather, Myers Pier Marina in Belleville can serve as a port of refuge.

 

WEDNESDAY, JULY 26

Sandy Cove to Trenton (11 nautical miles)

Participants have a choice to overnight either at the CFB Trenton Yacht Club or the Trent Port Marina. Be sure to advise the cruise captain of your preference as soon as possible

.

CFB Trenton Yacht Club always reserves a warm welcome for participants of the CBYC Around-the-County extended cruise. It is a reciprocal club and can receive boats up to 35 ft. in length with 5 ft. of draft.

Trent Port Marina is a new municipal facility and will consider a reduction in dockage rates for a group (standard rate: $1.60/ft). 

 

Decision point no. 1: Based on weather forecasts, participants make a decision to continue south around the County or return east via the Bay of Quinte.

 

THURSDAY, JULY 27

Trenton to Presqu’ile Bay via the Murray Canal (10 nautical miles)

Enjoy a toll-free trip through the Murray Canal. The usual overnight point for this CBYC cruise is the government dock at Presqu’ile, which is maintained by the Municipality of Brighton; however, this year the dock is partly submerged and unusable. Instead, participants will tie up on the wall at the west entrance to the canal.

Decision point no. 2: Based on weather forecasts, participants make a decision to continue south around the County or return east via the Bay of Quinte.

 

FRIDAY, JULY 28

Presqu’ile Bay to Waupoos south around the County (54 nautical miles)

An early start for the longest leg of the cruise. Then, anchor or dock at Waupoos Marina. Be sure to advise the cruise captain if you desire dockage at Waupoos and the number of nights you plan to stay.

Day of rest and relaxation at Waupoos: possible lunch at the County Cider Company and cruise dinner at the Duke of Marysburgh Pub & Bistro, etc.
