For the 2018 cruise season we hope to have 7 or 8 weekend cruises, a big TGIF Raft-Up at Duck Island,  plus a 2 week summer cruise to ports unknown. 

Cruise Reports - we encourage cruise leaders and participants to submit photos and a summary of any DIYC cruise to diyc.webmaster@gmail.com.

***CRUISE NOTICE BOARD***

Notices (newest first):

6/26/18 -  Mattituck Strawberry Festival Cruise:
It was a great weekend. We had 3 boats anchored.
Problem (take note) the dingy dock and ramp at the public park were not there?
However Terry the office manager at Strongs Marina was very helpful. She rented us dingy space for a very nominal cost which included Wifi
So we ferried folks to and from the dingy dock to get ashore for the Strawberry Festival and dinner at the Penny Lane Restaurant. Uber worked to the Fair Grounds and a short walk to dinner.

Labor Day Cruise to Mystic Seaport Museum:
The Dock Office expects us.
So far we have eight boats signed up.
Call them and make your reservations.
Plans are being worked on. Saturday evening cocktail party on Bertram Dock (near Brilliant) BYOB & Appetizer to share. Sunday morning brunch at Latitudes. Sunday night dinner downtown.
There is a Viking Exhibit this year which is supposed to be quite good.
For those that would like to join us by car, put it on your calendar and we will arrange entrance tix for you. Let me know.
More details to follow.
