At this writing in early January, plans are subject to change since Urbanna has not released the official date for its 2019 Independence Day celebration. Tentatively, we plan to sail to Urbanna on Thursday, July 4th, and stay at the new floating docks at the site of the previous Dozier Port Urbanna Marina (or at Bridge Marina, depending on availability at Dozier site, or anchor out if you prefer and can find room). We will plan to have appetizers and fleet dinner in time to watch the festivities. Friday will be a day to relax, explore nearby sites, day sail, or dinghy to the beach at the harbor entrance for a swim. Saturday we will return home.
We welcome suggestions (please copy the cruising email list so that others can comment). Wind and weather permitting, and depending on others’ interests and the nearby ports in the 2019 schedule, we could return Sunday and add another nearby destination that we will not otherwise visit in 2019 (i.e., a 4-day cruise). Let us know what you would like.
Lastly, dock availability may be limited during the July 4th celebration, SO PLEASE DECIDE EARLY AND MAKE YOUR DOCKING RESERVATIONS AS SOON AS THE FLEET DATES ARE SET. Questions to Gordon ()and Jane ( ) Cutler, 804-776-7630.
