Where & When will we meet?

I would like to put a date out there: Saturday, July 27th 2013.

It was July 27th 2011 when we lost our GulfStar.
It was July 27th 2012 when we closed our purchase of the Triumph.

So, that date has some significance, and it is still at the height of the summer.

I would also still propose dropping our hooks at Edgartown / Chappaquiddick, because that has a sandy bottom which my hook has never dragged in, and it provides a sheltered harbor (for the prevailing SW winds) large enough for plenty of vessels.

So, who wants to do this?

Is this still planned?


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
