Club cruise – River Run 2014

The club cruise for 2014 is coming together. Our vision for this cruise is to show off the best of the upper river system. This trip has been planned for the broadest appeal and boats to accommodate boats of all size and capabilities.

Here are the highlights:

  • BBQ in Fredericton Friday night to get organized and have a bit of a party (Music on the wharf in fton We might be able to find a fire pit!)
  • Get up late and leave to Middle Island If the water is down this is a good beach day on one of the islands Not far, easy for the first day.
  • Get up and leave for Big Cove (possible stop in Colwell creek depending on whim – If we go to Colwell creek there is a possibility of a BBQ with a local butcher. On the way to Big Cove we can get a winery tour at Motts Landing.
  • Next day we do a run to Kingston Creek and hike Shamper’s bluff up to the overlook of the Kingston Creek
  • Back up to Gagetown for the fireworks, shopping, pub, etc I’ve asked to reserve 3 moorings for July 1
