2016 Summer Raft-Up Schedule

Below is the informal schedule for the 2016 Cruising Class Summer Raft-Up Schedule. Boats are to meet at approximately 1800 at the Club mooring in Cold Spring Harbor. Raft-up rules; bring appetizer/food to share and your own libations/ice. Dinner onboard your boats, or afterwards at the Clubhouse. Those wishing to spend the night rafted up at the mooring are invited to do so.

2016 Cruising Events Schedule
On Saturday, May 28th, we will have our (soon to be) traditional Race to Black Rock Yacht Club, which was elected as a winning event by all who attended last year. Race up on Saturday; back on Sunday; three to four hours, depending on wind.

There will be bi-weekly raft-ups on the SCYC Cruising Class moorings in Cold Spring Harbor or Oyster Bay on Friday or Saturday nights. You do not need to make reservations; just show up and party until you fall asleep or return to your mooring at SCYC.

The Annual Cruise is scheduled for July 23-30th. The course and venues will be discussed at the monthly raft-ups during the winter months.

For those racers in the fleet, we have the Alfred Roosevelt Regatta on May 14th, the Annual Club Rendezvous on July 9-10th, the Dooley Roosevelt Regatta with our Sagamore friends on August 6th, and the Fall Regatta on September 4th.

This year, we are going to initiate a raft-up somewhere on the Hudson River in late September/October. Surprise visits to various exciting attractions will be announced!

Anyone who owns, has owned or dreams of owning a cruising boat is welcome to join the SCYC Cruising Class. Please respond to to be placed on an exclusive list for announcements, parties and prizes.
