Just to make sure there's no confusion here, this is not a "rally" like the Bermuda thing. Not at all. I am a member of a small yacht club called Sheldrake Yacht Club, and this year I find myself the victim of being in charge of the Club Cruise, the itinerary for which Brad sets out above. It's very low key, very casual, not all that organized, nothing "required" or anything like that (and if it turns into something like that my wife will kill me because she just wants to chill on this trip).Daniel Goldberg's BI to Nantucket rally on Sunday, July 12th. That's right Daniel's been holding out on you. He organizes a rally that we are really looking forward to joining this year. The trip is BI -- Cuttyhunk -- Edgartown (2 nights) -- Nantucket (2 nights). After that everyone is going on their own. We'll be looking for other boats to rally back to BI/Montauk with, maybe direct across the open ocean, if weather is favorable.
Anyway, so far we have something like 12 to 15 boats that are going. I can't even remember frankly. The "fleet" gathers on BI on Sunday, July 12, and we head out from there, all depending very seriously on weather (as I told the club members, be prepared for a club cruise to Oyster Bay if the weather dictates). If you would like to come along, you are more than welcome, just PM me and I'll give you some info. Or Brad, if you're inclined, feel free to post the details re: mooring reservations and such; I just don't have the time at the moment, but none of it is secret or exclusionary, and frankly, Sheldrake is looking for members, so anyone interested in participating would be most welcome. And just so you all know, Sheldrake is a non-profit paper club without a clubhouse or facility (burned down many years ago), so the dues is very modest, something like $75/year (again, I can't remember offhand).
