The 2017 boating season will bring Sag Harbor Yacht Club its 14th Cruise / Rendezvous. This great event, held annually, the weekend following Labor Day, has become a Yacht Club tradition. Participating members and their guests cruise by power or sail and sometimes "land yacht", to a shoreside location in the Eastern Long Island / New England area. Past cruises have landed SHYC cruisers in Newport, RI, Mystic, CT., Block Island, RI and Essex, CT. This years destination will be Essex.
During past cruises, participants have enjoyed private tours of such nautically significant icons as the International Yacht Restoration School and the restoration of the Schooner Yacht Coronet in Newport, the restoration of the Whaleship Charles W. Morgan at Mystic Seaport and the Herreshoff Museum & Americas Cup Hall of Fame in Bristol, RI. Fine dining, has also been a hallmark of this event, with Saturday evening shoreside dinner parties and lobster boils. Whether held under a tent on the Herreshoff waterfront during a gale, or on the porch of The National on Block Island looking out over the Atlantic, or on the cove at the Essex Yacht Club, all have been quite special.
We look forward to again sharing our cruising experience with our "regulars" and invite members and their guests who have not experienced our rendezvous, to join us for this years event, which will be held Friday - Sunday (Monday), September 8 - 10 (11).
