Memorial Day Cruise

May 25 - 27, 2019



The 2019 DIYC cruising program began with a cruise to Hamburg Cove for the Memorial Day Weekend.  

This was definitely not the most attended Memorial Day cruise, but it was probably the best weather we have had in years. 


Bob and I, with the Volpes were on a mooring Friday. There were white caps in the cove and maybe two other boats. Saturday was a beautiful day and brought Lois Glazerís Crazy Cakes and her fun crew, Dave and Kathy Nauber and Dave and Maria Gilmore. We had a nice cocktail party on our boat with great appetizers and of course, Jell-O shots. Sunday was an even more beautiful day and the Naubers, Gilmores, Volpes, and Bob and I took our annual hike on Cove Road.


Kim and Tina joined the Naubers and Bob picked up Pete and Ruth Connal and Al and Colette Skinner at the dock to join the party. Brian, Lauren and Ben Weinstein and some of Benís friends also joined for the cocktail part of the carry in supper. Everyone brought dinner contributions and the food was wonderful with of course, Jell-O shots!!


Thank you Dave Gilmore for taking pictures. It was definitely a fun and successful cruise, and the first club cruise of the season.


Happy summer

Bob and Roz
