The objective of the BSC Cruising Program is to promote comradery, fellowship, and fun with friends. These objectives are accomplished in a setting not long ago populated by pirates, swashbucklers, villains, and damsels in distress straight from the pages of history. While plying the waters of our unique cruising grounds and visiting its communities one can still hear the twinges of the “Old English” brogue on Ocracoke and Hatteras, see boats being built by hand in Beaufort and Manteo, enjoy the seafaring past at the museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City, and see the nation’s oldest courthouse and jails and walk or ride the historic tours of Edenton. Anchoring in the tributaries of the Neuse provides the opportunity for all cruisers to gather on the leader boat to share munchies, tell stories, and have fun with friends and, if the trip includes a cruise to Washington, 2 to 4 hours to visit the Washington Estuarian should be in the plan.
The BSC Cruising Program is supported by one of the most extensive and unique cruising grounds available to sailors in the country. It extends west to New Bern. north to the Havre De Grace Maryland in the Chesapeake Bay, east to the Outer Banks, and South to Beaufort and then to the Atlantic for Wilmington, Charleston, and points south as well as a 6-day jaunt to Bermuda.
Typical cruises include a day sail, a weekend, a week, three weeks, or three months. Whether you own a 20 ft cruiser or a 45 ft cruiser the program is inclusive to all member boats and are planned to consider the capabilities of the various boats and their sizes.
