Montague Marina

Montague

Dec 5, 2016

Many boats cruising between Charlottetown and Nova Scotia often bypass what is, in my opinion, one of the nicest areas of PEI. The so called “Three Rivers Region” encompasses the rivers accessed from Cardigan Bay. The approaches are deep and the channels well marked to marinas at Cardigan, Brudenell (bring your golf clubs) and Montague. The Marina at Montague is located conveniently for restaurants, groceries etc. A draft of 10ft can be carried even at low water for the 5 mile trip up river to the marina and manager Andrew Rowe tells us he has accommodated yachts as large as 120ft.

The marina operates form May 1st until October 31st and accommodates approximately 60 boats on floating docks. Six to eight berths are reserved for visiting yachts. Washrooms with showers, premium gasoline and unmarked diesel fuel, a mast crane (for boats up to about 30 ft.), and a concrete launch ramp are on site. Sewage pump-out is available for a $10 fee. There is a night watchman and security gates.

Rates are 1.25 /ft. per day and 6.25/ft. by the week. For all information contact 902-838-2528 or visit: http://www.townofmontaguepei.com/marina

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
