Wareham Center Names & Numbers
April 15, 2016
From southern parts of Buzzards Bay or the Cape Cod Canal, head for Great Hill Point, being sure to keep south of RN “2” marking Dry Ledge. Pick up RN “4” and RN “6”. Note that you will have a tight squeeze between RN “6” and GC “7”, the latter marking some nasty rocks off Cromeset Point. Follow the channel markers closely as you head north, and take care to stay west of RN “12”; it marks the tip of Long Beach Point, which is submerged at high tide. A no-wake zone begins at GC “17”. Just north of this buoy, the channel turns to skirt a large, shallow mud flat as you approach Zecco Marina and the bridges.
