Brielle NJ to Barnegat Bay NJ
The Manasquan River marks the start of New Jersey's Intercoastal Waterway. Oasis navigated through bascule, vertical lift and fixed bridges, the firsts of many more. Calm waters in the first leg of the journey up to 20 knots of wind by the end of the day.
The beginning of the New Jersey Intercoastal Waterway. Going up stream, there is a strong current.
