Cruise Committee News

2014 Summer Cruise June 18 – June 22

On Wednesday, June 18th, at 1100 hrs, willing participants will gather at the Boathouse and select a destination, based on a number of criteria: wind, weather, mood, and, of course, the lime supply. We will then depart at 1200 hrs.

The destination selection process will be repeated each morning by the participants. Each day, we will notify the Harbormaster of our decision and send out an e-mail blast so those who decide to join us for part of the Cruise will be able to locate the fleet. We expect to return to GIYS on Sunday, June 22nd.

By definition, we should never be too distant from the Gibson Island Harbor, especially accessible by power boats. One word of caution: if you join us for one or more days after the fleet has initially departed Gibson Island, you may have to bring ice. And limes. Don’t forget the limes.
