    BarBay to Wildwood

    I'm trying to set up a decent run to Wildwood on Fri 8/8, Sat 8/9, or Sun 8/10.

    We can meet anywhere in the BarBay, ramp out from Waretown, or meet anywhere along the route.

    I'd like to be in water by 7am, check out the inlets, IC/backbay runs, get some food and drinks in Wildwood, etc.

    Reply to this post or PM me if your interested and which days will work best for you.

    i've got a race that weekend so i am out....but that is a haul.... it's do-able but qould require some significant planning as not alot of places down south have premium on the water so you would need to research that ahead of time....

    Carry fuel additive if you need to. Also, we shouldnt be able to top off more than half a tank each time.

    AC is about halfway. Somewhere around 150 mile round trip from Waretown to Wildwood, 70 miles point to point. A direct route including gas stops will probably take 2.5 - 3 hours to get there and 4 - 5 hours to get back.

    The ride should not be much of a body killer because of the am departure and the intercoastal. It was recommended to me to avoid Hereford Inlet and I also think it best to use the intercoastal as much as possible especially coming back up.
    Getting there should be smooth and fast.
    If everyone is up to it we can check out Corsons for a bit.

    As of now I have 2 skis definite, a few potentials, and still getting message out.

    Route A (w/ all variables favorable)
    ICW to Great Bay
    Out Little Egg Inlet to Absecon Inlet
    AC to OC
    OC to Corsons Inlet
    ICW to Stone Harbor
    ICW to Wildwood

    Route B (7 nautical miles longer)
    ICW

    We will have the opportunity to gas up every 10-20 miles.

    If your interested let me know which day(s) will/will not work for you.
    Right now I am trying to figure out the best destination in Wildwood that will allow us to keep skis in sight. On a glass day we should be there before 10am.
    Start coming back up by 2pm latest.

    We can pull our skis up right there and drink, eat, and drink on the beach or party deck.

    In reference to Hereford Inlet, would that be during low tide or only high tide? What is the worst you have seen it?

    Where do you recommend down there? We have to keep skis in sight and also just for lunch being that we have to be on our way north by 2-3pm.

    Thanks

    both high and low tide and most of the "boat" traffic uses the south side of the inlet....

    it is technically not a navigable waterway according to the USCG but people use it anyways......


    as far as how bad it gets it depends on the wind and the tide.... but mostly the wind.... if it is windy be careful or avoid if not experienced rider.... otherwise you can do it no problem....

    i take my 24ft. walkaround through it alot
