Our regular constructors get a break this week as the meta is constructed by Patrick Berry - always a treat!
The answer to the contest is a six-letter word.
Enjoy and good luck!

On shore! Tried a couple routes before finding the right mechanism.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

Very good puzzle! My 1st hunch was correct!
Good luck, fellow Muggles!

Solved. On shore. Ashore.
EDIT: I'll have something 40D, please. Warsteiner Dunkel will do me just fine.

Awesome construction, but didn't offer up much resistance.

Ashore. Wish I could get my MGWCC streak to be as lengthy as WSJ. Heck I'd settle for 2 in a row at this point.

Patrick Berry is always entertaining. He has invented so many great new puzzle types. I am addicted to Row's Gardens.
On shore. It is already Friday for me, but too early for a cocktail. I'll settle for coffee for now.

Yay! Onshore early two weeks in a row - thanks to Joe Ross posting his excel template so quickly.
Maybe another record-breaking week?

On shore. It's similar to other metas despite having a different creator. I'm 100% sure this time.
