    Harborfest Cruise - June 9-11

    Hosted by:  

    • Robert (Rudy) Eash
    • S/V Brittany
    • (757) 274-2764

    The BBSA and HYC cruisers will once again make the long trek to Norfolk for the Harborfest weekend, where participants will have the option to anchor together, in the vicinity of R32 off Hospital Point near Tidewater Yacht Marina, or reserve dockage at Waterside Marina directly.  Since the Parade of Sail is Friday morning, I envision that several boats will arrive at Harborfest Thursday night or early Friday AM.  We (S/V Brittany) will be there Thursday afternoon.  We welcome others to join us to get a good spot to see the Parade on Friday morning and fireworks on Saturday night.  Regarding events, other than the shoreside action throughout the weekend, we plan to get together a few times out on the boats in the anchorage. Remember, we will be rafting up, anchoring solo, getting a slip, and/or potentially dinking around a bit. 

    Friday:   For those that arrive prior to the Parade of Sail (at about noon) BRUNCH aboard Brittany and Serendipity Too.  I will be anchored right next to the parade route.  Please bring a very simple breakfast item to share, if you wish.  Time: 1000

    Saturday:  Plenty to do ashore all day with no cruise events until the evening.  We are checking on the possibility of being able to dock our dinghy’s at Nauticus throughout the weekend.  Waterside Marina does not permit dinghy dockage.  S/V Brittany, with assistance from others, will host an evening cocktail and simple covered dish event aboard our boats from 1800-2000.  Please bring something to share and beverages of your choice.  If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will develop a Plan B.  I do envision several boats rafted, if possible.  Dinghy pull ups possible.  Stay to watch the fireworks together or take a breather and come back at 9:00.

    Sunday: No cruise events planned as we depart for home ports.

    We hope that you will join us for the Harborfest Cruise. Please RSVP to Robert (Rudy) Eash. Please indicate when you plan to arrive and depart. I will likely send out additional communications or contact you directly to discuss the cruise in more detail as the event gets closer.

    Slow Moving Northern Neck One Week Cruise V1 10-18 June

    Welcome cruisers to our (Cindy, SparkE, Ginger & I) slow moving journey to the Northern Neck from Saturday June 10 - Sunday June 18.  If you do not desire to cover 50 nautical miles per day and want to stay longer than 23 hours in one spot...this may be the voyage for you?  Join us for the entire cruise or come/go as you please.  I do not anticipate access issues for your vessel at marina's (or anchorage) as we are well before the July 4th window.  Do not stress about BADDDAS'S (Bring A Dam Dish Drink Appetizer to Share) - Cindy refuses to plan more than 12 hours in advance, and she prefers to eat out as much as possible.  The plan is simple - we cruise safely together, enjoy the company of like-minded sailors and create life-long memories along the way!  Please see the float plan.  Let me know when you are joining our group.  If you have any questions, please ask at any time.  We are looking forward to sharing our summer holiday with you.

    Sail to Doobie Brothers in Portsmouth July 3

    Short Description:  Get to see the Doobie Brothers on their 50th anniversary tour. LOL-It cannot be that long ago. Sail to Oceans Yacht Marina or Tidewater Yacht or anchor out at Hospital Point and join us aboard Aspire for pre and post -concert cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. BYOB and bring an hors d’oeuvre or munchy to share. Aspire will be docked at Ocean Yacht Marina starting on the afternoon of July 2. Folks are welcome to hang out on Aspire and listen to the concert. Some people will be attending the concert. Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion is where the band will play and is right next to Ocean Yacht Marina.

    RSVP:    YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE YOUR OWN ARRANGEMENTS WITH THE MARINA. Oceans has limited transient slips, but Tidewater Yacht says that they have plenty. Please send me an email if you plan to join this exciting cruise.

    Destination(s):  Oceans Yacht Marina and Tidewater yacht Marina or Hospital Point anchorage. Some boats may want to leave the marina on July 4 and anchor out in Willoughby or Little Creek areas to watch multiple fireworks displays from their boats.

    Anchoring: Anchoring is available at Hospital Point, across from Norfolk Waterside. Dinghies can come ashore at Tidewater Yacht or Oceans Yacht. I would definitely frown upon swimming or paddle-boarding at the anchorage because of the water quality.

    Social Activities:                pre-and post-concert docktails on Aspire

    What time will cruisers be getting together?  Stop by Aspire any time. More organized plans to come.

    There will be fireworks and entertainment at Waterside/ Norfolk waterfront on the 4th of you wish to stay.

    Marina Contact Information:     

    Reservation Block Cutoff Date:  please contact Marina directly

    Let the marina know when you are coming and approximately how many boats are expected.

    Cruisers: Mention you are with the BBSA when you make your reservations. If possible, we’ll try to get adjacent slips. You are responsible for making and/or canceling any reservations made in your name.

    Tidewater Yacht has a pool.  There are many restaurants nearby.
