Re: Bay of Fundy, Reversing Falls and the St John river

Thanks John. I'll take your advice and moor at RKYC. Heading there tonight - shoot the falls at 0700 tomorrow morning.

Thanks Donna for the Active Captain suggestion. I couldn't find anything there, but good to know of another site.

I am able to read PM's, just can't send them.

WhiskyJohn Hey there, Whenever I'd go through the Falls, if usually spend the night at the RKYC. Time the slack and it'll take approx an hour to get there from Milligeville. You can get fuel and grab a shower there if you like. If you're a member of a Yacht Club there is probably a reciprocal agreement with the RKYC to give members a free night or two in a mooring. It's been a couple of years since I've been there, but the guest moorings were yellow and rigged with pennants .

We hope to visit in a year or two. We will be going up the Hudson and down the St Lawrence on our way to Newfoundland.

I was on the East coast of Quebec, near Labrador, a few years ago. Mighty nice.

Welcome to SailNet, Matt. He hasn't been here for almost a year so i doubt he'd respond anyway. Have you tried looking at Active Captain for anchorage areas?

Re: Bay of Fundy, Reversing Falls and the St John river

Greetings group,

Thanks for being out there.

I am moving a boat from the Kennebecasis River to Saint Andrews at the end of this week. I would like to get as close to Reversing Falls as possible the night before to move through first thing in the morning. Can someone suggest a suitable anchorage for an Acadian 30, 4'4" draft? How about Mosquito Cove?

I'd PM Whiskey John for a copy of the guidebook, but I am a new member and don't have 15 posts required for a PM.

Many thanks,
Matt

WhiskyJohn I also have a pdf version of the Saint John River cruising guide which includes some useful info on shooting the Reversing Falls. If you'd like a copy, drop me a pm.
