DIYC Memorial Day Weekend Cruise


Hamburg Cove - May 24 - 27, 2024

The 2024 DIYC cruising program begins with a cruise to Hamburg Cove for Memorial Day Weekend.

This has always been a fun weekend and the nice thing is that you don’t have to be a cruiser to join in.  Fourteen years ago, when we changed the cruise to Hamburg Cove, non-cruisers were able to join in, since Hamburg Cove is on the Connecticut shore and could be reached by car.  We are planning to do the same thing this year. So, anyone wanting to join the cruise by car, we are planning a carry in dinner on Sunday evening, May 26.   We will have a pick up at the dinghy dock at Hamburg around 4:00 p.m.  Please give us a call on our cells at (860) 227-5070 (Roz) or (860) 391-4252 (Bob) so we can come and get you by dinghy.  (And don’t forget your food contribution and byob). 

For the carry in dinner, if your last name begins with:

A-I – please bring salad or dessert

J-O – please bring hor'doeuvres

P-Z – please bring the main course

We will supply paper goods and ice.

For the past couple of years, instead of doing Seldon Creek or even Hamburg Cove by dinghy, we have been walking the loop in Hamburg Cove which is a wonderful walk. Hopefully, we will do a good walk either Saturday or Sunday or both days.  Saturday evening will be a cocktail party (not dinner). We will let you know on Saturday whose boat it will be on.  So bring something to share and byob for that. 

Should be a fun weekend!  If you have any questions or know now that you will meet us by land and need a pick up, please give us a call.  Also if we know you are coming by boat we will try (if possible) to save some extra town moorings (might be $20 per night).

Hope to see you in Hamburg Cove!
