Friday, June 24, - Monday, June 27, 2016

This year’s Cape Charles Cruise will begin with a pre-cruise dinner on Friday, June 24, at FBYC, beginning at 6:30 PM. On Saturday we will sail to Cape Charles Town Harbor Marina. At this time of year, we can hope for good winds and reasonable temperatures. With 15 hours of sunlight, all of the club’s cruising boats should be able to comfortably cover the 30 or so nautical miles to Cape Charles—so we encourage all interested to join in, including newer and younger members or racers. Jane will arrange a group dinner on Saturday. With 20 or more confirmed attendees, the Hook-U-Up Gourmet will open just for us—it is run by a real chef and offers the best dining in Cape Charles. For Sunday and Monday, we’ll keep plans flexible depending on wishes of participants, which we can discuss at the pre-cruise dinner (if not before): (1) Some may need to return Sunday for other commitments. (2) If desired, we can spend a quiet Sunday in Cape Charles, seeing the sights, reading or visiting, or traveling the 5 miles south to Kiptopeke State Park & return—where the Camps introduced us to the nature trails, large well-attended public beach, and unique man-made harbor from scuttled WW2 ships. (3) Alternatively, depending on wind and wishes, we can sail Sunday to the East River in Mathews and a low-key bring-your-own dinner at the Williams Wharf pavilion. On Monday, we will sail back to Deltaville. Slip reservations ($1.75 per foot) can be made by phone (757-331-2357) or email ( Anchoring out is not permitted in Cape Charles Harbor. If the town harbor marina is full, dockage is also available at $2.00 per foot at the Cape Charles Yacht Center (757-331-3100, email, which is about a 10-minute walk further into the harbor, and which does not have its own bathhouse (town harbor public bathhouse is available to both marinas). To facilitate planning, please register by June 12, 2016.
