Third time morning in Gloucester. Better every year. Moorings well marked with pickup masts, launch service included and prompt and will take you anywhere in the harbor Restaurants and services short walk from landing.
PYC was awesome. Alert and friendly waterfront staff, welcoming members, great facility ( heads, showers, lawn, porch and bar). Harbor and moorings are safe and snug, although getting to the harbor from open water is a 4 mile winding path around peninsulas and sandbars. Watch the buoys and charts and mind the big power boats and commercial traffic that throw big wakes until you get to the inner harbor. Plymouth is what it is, but we found some great antique shops and excellent restaurants.
Excellent service by dock master, assisted with tie up and introduction to marina with a welcome bag. Head and showers first rate, tons of stores and restaurants within the marina itself. Watch the charts and buoys carefully on the way in, lots of turns, narrow, but plenty water. Mind the ferries going in and out.
