2018 Northeast Ranger/Cutwater Gathering

Postby knotflying on Tue Mar 13, 2018 8:13 am

Hello all,

A bit early, but I am getting the word out now so you can put it on your calendars. This year it will be August 10, 11 and 12th. As with last year, we are keeping it simple. Friday night pot luck, Saturday morning a boat crawl, then free time to visit the town and a pizza dinner Saturday evening. The Dockmaster offered to arrange Coast Guard inspections by the Auxiliary for those that may be interested. Please e-mail Brian Beltrami if you want an inspection - brianbel@ verizon.net. Your inspection is voluntary and if you fail there is no penalty or cost. The good part is you get a sticker that you place on your boat that signifies that you passed and it often eliminates an unexpected boarding by the Coast Guard when the inspection counts and the fine for failure is real. It is a great opportunity to ensure you are in compliance without the fear of a fine.

The Marina is holding 12 slips at this time and your reservations are to be done directly to them.
Penny is the Dockmaster at Pope's Island Marina in New Bedford:
Pope's Island Marina
102 Pope's Island
New Bedford, MA 02740

If you plan on attending, please e-mail me to let me know and include your boat model, size, boat name, your's and your guests name, e-mail and phone number. Once you are on the list any additional information etc. will be sent to you as it comes in.

Don't worry, all that snow the NE is getting today will soon melt and we will be back to boating in no time.

If anyone wanted to trailer their boat there is a nice boat ramp in Fairhaven. Double ramp with floating dock, about ¼ mile to the marina. There is a $7.00 parking fee per day at the ramp. You could ask the folks at the marina if the rig could be parked in their lot.
As Mike stated email me if you would like a CG inspection. brianbel@verizon.net

Peggy and I will be sailing MON PETIT CHOU CHOU to New Bedford for the gathering. We hopefully will repeat our overnighter in Cuttyhunk again this year. Once you have walked the island and visited the general store, you have seen it all but, it is a reason to spend another night on the boat.
