The following note came in from the Harbourmaster of Camachee Cove, just outside of St. Augustine. I've copied it from Cruisersnet.net - Claiborne, hope you don't mind...
We have just heard that some are calling for a boycott of St. Augustine due to the proposed 10-day limit on anchoring within St. Augustine’s corporate limit. First, we are glad that the Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net is NOT joining in the call for a boycott, but we do understand that you are opposed to the 10-day limit. Let’s hope the FWC does not approve that regulation.
We do want the cruising community to know that CAMACHEE COVE YACHT HARBOR IS NOT LOCATED WITHIN ST. AUGUSTINE CITY LIMITS, and the waters of Tolomato River, adjacent to our facility, offer free anchorage for all cruising craft. Furthermore, all captains and crews can be assured of a warm welcome at Camachee Cove, and we will do all in our power to assist all members of the cruising community.
Cruisers might also like to know that our marina offers not one but two courtesy cars for its dockage customers, which facilitates an easy trip into the St. Augustine historic district, including the old Castello, and nearby shopping. Furthermore, a new Public supermarket is currently under construction just across the Vilano Beach Bridge from our facility, and will be open in a few months. Of course our dockage customers will be able to use the marina courtesy cars for provisioning here as well, as soon as the opening
Thanks for helping us get the word out that Camachee Cover is CRUISER FRIENDLY!
