Little Bay Cruise with Grandchildren


Fri, Jun 13 - 15, 2014



Event Managers


This short cruise is to one of the cruisers’ favorite gunkholes, within an easy sailing distance from the Club. Grandparents and their grandchildren or families with teenage children are strongly encouraged to join in. June usually provides “fair” winds for a good weekend cruise after a fun Friday night.

Our  schedule for the Kid’s Cruise to Little Bay begins on Friday, June 13, 7 PM, with a dessert reception and skipper’s meeting at the Sakowski Cottage , 76 Sunrise Point, Deltaville .  Please bring all your crew for dessert, planning  and fellowship.

We will leave for Little Bay (Antipoison Creek entrance area) at your leisure, but will plan to raft up around  "Miss Kate" at noon for lunch (on your own).

At 1 PM we will leave in our dinghy’s (will transport those without dinghys) for the beach to play some  games, and relax.

At 2 PM a dinghy race (oars only) for kids, and then one for adults,  will begin on a course to be designed. Hopefully the nettles will allow us to swim using a “buddy” system.

5:30 PM: Dinner will be served on the "raft up", with beer / wine provided for the adults, soft drinks, and  juices for the children.  We will provide  BBQ, coleslaw, buns, and baked beans.  Participants can volunteer to bring a side or dessert.  If you want to “reply all” to this email, then others will know what you are bringing.

We will disengage the raft up around dark and anchor separately.

Return to FBYC or home at your leisure on Sunday.
