2013 C&C Northeast Rendezvous on Block Island

For all you C&C built and/or designed enthusiasts;

If you can't make it, but you had a nagging question you always wanted to ask Rob Ball, here is your chance.

Post the question here and during the Q&A part of Rob Balls talk we will try to get to as many of your queries as possible, or until he can't take it any more and gets a restraining order.

For those of you who haven't a clue what I'm on about, here is the low down :

Block Island Boat Basin, Great Salt Pond, Sept. 6 -8 2013

Sign up at: 2013 C & C NorthEast Rendezvous
More information at: C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center

Museum of The Great Lakes (houses C&C/George Cuthbertson's blue prints.)

FRIDAY 5PM - Welcome Dock Party

Located at the Boat Basin BBQ area just off the main dock.

Depart the Boat Basin at approximately Noon
Meet at the Red #2 Nun just outside of Great Salt Pond by 12:30PM.
Sail past Green #1BI and back to Red #2 (about 7 miles total).
Just some fun around the cans and a great photo op.
Contest and prizes to be announced, weather permitting.

A guided tour that includes some of the history of the island's Native
Americans, early settlers, the sword fishing industry and other themes.

I'll post the answers here.

Interesting. I'm usually a post Labor Day BI cruiser. Beautiful out there after the summer crowd leaves, but still warm and usually good wind.

Not sure ow many C&Cs are expected to clog up my plans.

R2 to 1BI is essentially the approach corridor from the mainland. Not a huge deal, but it doesn't seem like that would be the most casual place to bunch up a flotilla.

I'm also a big fan of Block Island in June, Sept. and Oct.

I don't think we will be getting in anyone's way. In fact, I'm sure even with our little flotilla it will still be less congested than your average weekend in August or July.

I'm thinking of a super soaker filled with beer.... what's the name of your boat?

You won't need to know it. If you're launching free beer, just tell me which side you prefer I pull up against.

We will be at the BI Boat Basin/The Oar all weekend. Beer is on me. You don't even have to drink it from the super soaker, unless you prefer it that way.

And you don't have to be a C&C owner to attend the Rob Ball talk...

Re: 2013 C&C Northeast Rendezvous on Block Island

Update:

I just received a box full of the latest issue of GOOD OLD BOAT MAGAZINE. There should be enough magazines to give each attendee, boat or couple a copy, depending on how many people show up.

They also gave us two gift certificates good for a one year subscription to the magazine.

As an added bonus, the issue features a review of the venerable C&C 30KI.

What more could one ask for? OK, nice weather and free beer.
