Lunenburg Harbour Continues Waterfront Improvements

Zwicker Wharf Lunenberg
Mar 22, 2016

Lunenburg has long been a must visit destination for tourists and this includes visiting yachts from all over the world. However, until recently the harbour was not particularly yacht friendly,shore access was dominated by large wharves dedicated to commercial vessels. Things have been steadily improving over the last several years and there are now three designated areas for visiting yachts. The Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic is the preferred dock for large sail training vessels and super yachts. Here the museum visitor scan speculate which movie star or business mogul may be aboard. Just to the south is Zwicker’s Wharf where a designated dinghy dock serves the anchorage and moorings and some 300 feet of floating dock is provided, with electrical hook-up available. The Waterfront Development Corporation is undertaking re-decking on the wharf for the 2016. Down by the marine railways is the Marina Wharf which can accommodate boats to 45ft and has power, water, sewage pump-out and showers. Space is limited.

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.
