Nine Day Block Island Cruise June 29 – July 8. Updated!
We are planning a 9-day (or more!) cruise to Block Island starting Friday June 29 thru Sunday July 8. We have changed our plan for this trip to head directly to Newport, RI for the America’s Cup Racing Finals. The AC World Series running from Tuesday, June 26 through Sunday, July 1. The series will climax on the final Sunday (July 1), when both the event and season champion will be crowned. The final race day will air live, nationwide, on NBC. Who knows when the America’s Cup Racing will be held in the United States so come along for what could be a once in a lifetime experience.
So far we have three sailboats coming along on this cruise. Two sailboats from the City Island Yacht Club and one sailboat from the Morris Yacht Club.
Since we are heading out directly to Newport, R.I. for the Racing we will depart Monday after the races for places like Cuttyhunk, Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island and make our way west in stops like Fishers’s Island and then either stop along the way on the Connecticut side or the Long Island Side. Our route will be determined by the wind and crew preferences.

Labor Day Weekend August 31 – September 3. Leaving on Friday for this one.
Just because Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer there are many good sailing days left in the season and we will be sailing till we can’t sail no more. Just before the end of the season this year I may be sailing my boat down to Washington DC and will be looking for crew. This will be a one way cruise because I am leaving the boat in Virginia to have some work done on it. The Chesapeake area is a great place to find “real boat professionals”.
