COLUMBUS DAY CRUISE

10/6/17 - Due to the early weather forecasts and the fact that we have had no response from DIYC cruisers, Ceilidh will not be on station at Hamburg Cove this weekend.

COME JOIN US FOR THE LAST CRUISE OF THE SEASON

 .

Hamburg Cove is just above Essex on the Connecticut River. Plenty of water with rental moorings available ($30/boat w rafting permitted). A dingy ride to the inner cove or up to Selden Creek is recommended. Hamburg Yacht Club has always allowed us to use their dingy dock & parking lot, for those that come by car.

We usually go up on Thursday or Friday. Ceilidh will host a cocktail party on Saturday at 5PM. For those coming by car call me c203-907-7175 and we will come get you.

We were hoping to host a pot luck supper on Sunday but unfortunately we have to return that day. Perhaps another boat will volunteer to host it.

The Connecticut River can be spectacular this time of year & Hamburg Cove is always beautiful. Peak foliage in the lower CT River Valley isnít predicted for a week or two after Columbus Day Weekend but your presence will lite up the cove.

Did you know that at Flat Rock at the beginning of the channel between the Outer Harbor & Inner Harbor there is a spring that was used by the Native Americans before the arrival of the Pale Face?

We need to know if you will be joining us so please give us a call or email.

Hope to see you there.
