Catching the 'Ninth Wave'

Van Campen celebrates 12 years chartering catamaran

(Continued)

One of Van Campen’s goals is to pay off the boat, which visitors will see tied up on the west end of the boardwalk by the Black Cow restaurant.

Another is to keep sailing, with locals and tourists alike on board.

“Just being on the boardwalk here is a great thing,” he said. “People come down and will look at the several boats here. Sometimes they go out; sometimes not. Many visitors just like coming to the waterfront, watching the world go by. And when they get on the Ninth Wave, they can see what’s happening outside the harbor.”
