DUE TO OVERWHELMING RESPONSE, A 2:00 pm AFTERNOON CRUISE HAS BEEN ADDED FOR THOSE ON THE WAIT-LIST. HOWEVER,THERE IS STILL ONE OPENING FOR THE PERSON WHO ACTS THE QUICKEST! DETAILS AND LINKS TO FORMS BELOW.
Lighthouses, sailing with friends, and seafood!
Do over. It was such an enjoyable day last year, let's do it all again. Summers are always fun here in New Jersey and our own Barnegat Bay is a sailor's delight. We have two boats reserved for Sunday, July 9th with Barnegat Bay Sailing School (BBSS) located at Cedar Creek Marina, 100 Harbor Inn Rd., Bayville, NJ.
For the afternoon sail, arrive by 1:30 PM latest for the 2:00 PM dock departure with captains Mike and Audrey. A family-friendly sail of 2.5 hours out in Barnegat Bay with an experienced local captain is a great way to get an introduction to what sailing is all about. It's a perfect trip of those new to sailing or anyone looking for a pleasant summer day with great people! Lots of opportunity to take the wheel, assist with sails, learn about the bay...and children over age 6 are welcome. All children under 13 will be required to wear a life jacket while on the boat. Life jackets will be supplied, but you are welcome to bring your own. Boats are a Catalina 30 and a Pearson 37. There are nice restrooms at the marina for your use before boarding.
The expected return to the marina is 4:30 pm. There is no post-sail gathering planned for the afternoon sail; however, an informal gathering is not out of the question. Whether you're an experienced skipper, or have never set foot on a boat, this will be a great opportunity to socialize, learn new techniques, hear new stories, and just have a few laughs.
Those on the afternoon sail are welcome to join the morning crowd for a quick lunch, around 12:30 pm, at The Cove Waterfront Bar & Grill just down the road from the marina.
The cost of the day sail is $50.00 per person. The price includes boat rental for two and a half hours, water, soda and snacks while on board, provided by BBSS. You are free to bring your own as well. Lunch is optional, and not included in the trip price. Please indicate on the reservation form whether you will be staying for lunch so enough seats can be reserved at the restaurant.
The Club's standard 30 day cancellation policy applies.
Please make your check payable to The Sailing Club, Inc. and mail it, along with your completed reservation and Release form, to Mary Ann Gordon at the address on the form. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and have Release Form for Minors completed. Reservations are on a first come, first served basis. Reservations must be received by July 1st. However, if your schedule changes at the last minute and you'd like to join us, please reach out to me as we may be able to accommodate you.
Please note that sailing conditions are dynamic, that your safety, and that of your crewmates, depends on your good physical health and agility.
