August 23-24: TIDES INN RENDEZVOUS
This cruise is designed for ëoffshoreí participants, new and seasoned cruisers alike. Whether youíre thinking of a ëfirstí cruise, or are a regular, join us on this shorter, fun filled family weekend ëclose to homeí. Plan on leaving the FBYC docks mid-morning on Saturday and join us at the Tides Inn pool area at your leisure. Located 9 statute miles from Windmill Point on Carters Creek, the Tides Marina offers a full service 60 slip transient marina able to accommodate any FBYC vessel. When entering Carters Creek, contact the Tides Inn Dock Master on VHF Channel 16 and mention ëFBYCî for slip location directions. After you dock, come ashore to enjoy excellent shower and bath facilities, van and water taxi services, and "Best of the Bay" dining and lounges. Once we have a participation count, weíll schedule dinner reservations at the Chesapeake Club, offering Contemporary American Bistro Cuisine, panoramic views, and entertainment nightly. The poolside grill is an excellent alternative for children who prefer Americaís staples, hamburgers and dogs. The slip rate is $2.75/ft ($70 min.) plus a $22 resort fee that includes 30/50 AMP power, full access to all Resort facilities including complimentary par 3 golf (bring your clubs), a beautiful creek-side pool, tennis, fitness center, bicycles, Marina pleasure craft, scheduled transportation shuttle and access to the Tides Spa and Golden Eagle Championship Golf course. Weíve pre-booked a block of slips in advance, but, kindly confirm your individual reservations, with a deposit, by contacting Craig Young, Tides Inn Dock master, at 804-438-4419 no later than Saturday, August 2. Chaired by Ed and Diane OíConnor.
