Friday, September 8 - Sunday, September 17, 2017

Gordon and Jane Cutler are leading this late-summer cruise to explore parts of the Lower Potomac River.  Detailed planning is underway, and the schedule and ports of call below are subject to change, but the initial plan includes:

September 8, 2017 (Friday)—Pre-cruise dinner, FBYC

September 9 (Saturday)—Anchor in Cranes’s Creek, off home of FBYC members Jesus and Anna Lapera — dinghy to Laperas’ dock for cocktails and cookout at Laperas (plan contingent on verifying access via Crane’s Creek channel, which Jesus believes will be accessible by our boats with local guidance—water depth in creek itself is easily sufficient)

September 10 (Sunday)—Yeocomico River, White Point marina

September 11 (Monday)—Anchor in Breton Bay off Leonardtown, MD, and dinghy ashore at kayak ramp for dinner at location to be determined.

September 12, 13 (Tuesday, Wednesday)—Colonial Beach at Colonial Beach Yacht Center—with second day relaxing and exploring Colonial Beach.

September 14 (Thursday)—Anchor off St. Mary’s City, St. Mary’s River, and dinghy ashore for dinner at location to be determined, with option to relax and/or explore St. Mary’s City during the morning/early afternoon of September 15. 

September 15 (Friday)—Point Lookout Marina (or perhaps Corinthian Yacht Club), after short sail from St. Mary’s City (about 8 nautical miles)

September 16 (Saturday)—Deltaville, or add stop at Horn Harbor, Reedville, Chesapeake Cove Marina, Indian Creek Yacht & Country Club, or Little Bay, as desired.

September 17 (Sunday)—Deltaville (if not returning on Saturday). 

This preliminary plan will be updated as required.  Contact Gordon Cutler, gbcutler@gmail.com, 804-776-7630, with any questions.
