Barnegat Bay!

Back in August I asked which would have better sailing, Barnegat Bay or Delaware River.
After considering all the great comments and suggestions, we ended up at Mariner's Marina in Barnegat NJ.
Just a 5 minute motor out through a short channel and sails up. Great location and great sailing.
We enjoyed sailing so much we moved up to an Oday 25. We have only had it for about 3 weeks and got 5 sails in. Hoped to keep it in the water through Nov but Sandy is forcing us out this weekend.

Photos are from our sunset cruise on Monday. 65, sunny w/ 8 to 10 winds.
it's going to be a long winter!

Re: Barnegat Bay!

Hey Ward,
I'm the guy who suggested Mariners. Glad to hear it worked out for you.

I see Dick all the time with the pump out boat. Please tell Hunt & Susan I said hi!

Good luck with Sandy.

Jim

Re: Barnegat Bay!

I also suggested Barnegat Bay, but not Mariners. You will find the Bay a great place to sail in and a 25 foot ODay is perefect draft and size for the Bay. I used to have an Islander 28 there and keep it in Dillons Creek on the Toms River.

Make sure next you you do some anchorages in Tices Shoal and Meyers Hole behind the Barnegat LKighthouse.

Re: Barnegat Bay!

Jim,
Just met Hunt and Susan last week. Have also met Al and Elaine, Gary and Catherine and of course Dick. My slip is next to Mike, has a Newport and across the way is Big Dave.
Appears to be a great group. I am glad you recomended them.

Dave,
Just saw a reference to Meyers Hole made by Jim in another thread. Tices Shoal is on our list for an overnight stay. We felt (and was told by someone here) our Newport 17 was a bit small for the BB so that is why we moved up to the Oday 25.
DO,
That is north of the bridge, correct?

Re: Barnegat Bay!

Tices shoal is across from Forked River at Island State Park end on the southern and eastern BB. Meyers Hole is up the Sedge Island Route to the Barnegat inlet and off to the south a little .

Re: Barnegat Bay!

While I can see that the head has more room to go higher, it just won't go. Decided not to fight it. Boat has been hauled and after the storm I will be dropping the mast. I'll check it out then.

Re: Barnegat Bay!

Welcome to the bay.

Now GET OUT OF THERE before this hurricane hits!

That area around Barnegat Twp is a nice place to sail. We go down there sometimes and heave to to eat lunch when we don't feel like anchoring because there's plenty of deep water and there isn't as much traffic from the powerboats that are following the markers point to point.

I'm not a fan of Tices, but it's certainly popular (which is specifically why I avoid it). I also don't think it's a very good anchorage for overnight because it's only protected on one side, but people do it and I assume that it's mostly ok.

I love Meyers Hole though. You'd go north to BI and hang a right out the Oyster Creek Channel. Just pay attention to the tide...it can be a slow slog if it's against you, and the channel is really narrow in spots. Totally worth it though:

Good to see you Chip. We are battening down our hatches here as the blow looks like it may be coming straight through us.
