Jim Raper on

Cruising News

The Wee Dram will again venture to Cape Charles, VA on August 12th…their slips are a confirmed 18’ depth. We have reserved ‘C’ dock at the Town Harbor and if we should need more slips, those are available.

This remains a casual cruise/race format with a formal (shorts and tee shirts – no holes) social Saturday afternoon in Cap Charles.

To emphasize the cruising aspect of the ‘getting there’, and to assure a worthy recipient of the 2017 Wee Dram burgee, each boat will submit two scavenger hunt tickets naming items typically found on a proper cruising vessel…i.e. in-boom furling, electric winch, a third anchor, water maker, microwave, rail mounted grill, dingy …

Light breeze may have truncated the number of races in our Stingray Point Regatta; however, the conditions could not have been more ripe for a front lawn cornhole tournament this past Sunday.

As we worked through the bracket in single-elimination fashion down to our final four, eventually the island mood-setting reggae tunes turned to amateur comedic commentary over the felt a little like watching Wimbledon play-by-play analysis performed by Will Farrell and Jimmy Fallon wannabes …
