Thanks, I may take you up on your offer. Depending on whats going on with my schedule I may follow you there.
As we get closer to the date, I'll circulate a list of cell phone numbers, so attendees can stay in touch if we're not within VHF range but also don't have access to email.

Does anyone have any info on moorings in the area?
From the MapTech cruising guide:

"The harbormaster (631-477-0392) controls mooring and anchoring in the basin; reservations are a must for weekends. The transient moorings have two lobster pot-style floats tied to them: one orange, another green."

I'd suggest calling ASAP just to boost the chances of getting a mooring reservation.

See you there.

Are you guys getting mooring or a fixed dock at the marina?

Also I noticed there was an Inn across the bay, "Townsend Manor Inn & Marina" is there any other places to stay within walking distance?

Way to go, George! I'm going to recirculate your note about hurrying up, via the rOnDAYvous email list, to get people off their duffs. It's just a matter of time before Brewers says they can no longer hold the spaces for O'dayers.

Capt. Pete sent this notice out to those on the e-mail list, and I will post it here.

This year's model will be a polo, done in beautiful Carolina Blue (or Tarheel Blue, for you purists). The shirts will have a specially designed left breast logo and an equally special sleeve logo featuring the word O'day in signal flags and -- get this -- your boat's name and size.:dance:

I am handling the orders for this year's shirt, which will sell for a mere $25 each (XXL is $1 more, and XXXL is $2 more) Payment should be in CASH ONLY at the rOnDAYvous. (If you really want to send a check, it must be in advance. E-mail me -- rjchaplett at gmail dot com -- and I'll send you my mailing address.) Anyone not attending the rOnDAYvous who needs their shirt(s) shipped should e-mail me to make the necessary arrangements. Orders should be sent to me at the e-mail address above. Please include boat name and size, and be sure to spell the name correctly as you want it to appear on the shirt. We are not responsible for any spelling errors. Orders must be placed by June 18.

Still in?

Ken, Max, Keith...

I know it's a long drive to Greenport (for some of you longer than for others), but I'm wondering, and hoping: are you still coming to the rOnDAYvous? I sure hope so, because it's gonna be a dandy!

Let me know when you get a chance. And if you're not already on the mailing list for the rOnDAYvous e-newsletter, send me an e-mail address so I can get you up to speed with all kinds of useful information.

See you in Greenport!

I came up with the same hit on Google. Looks user-friendly enough, and not all that far from Brewers. So why not make a go of it?

Ok, the number for the harbormaster gave me a private line to a kind gentleman. He told me moorings are first come first served. Anyone get better info than this? The admiral and I will be early!

Hello all,

I'm Ed and my wife Lori and I are relatively new (owned for a few years but not sailed all of them) owners of a very well kept 1983 O'Day 25. We have named her "INITIUM," Latin for Beginning.

We bought her from the Hudson River Nautical Museum on Roundoubt in Kingston. Sailed her as she was for a couple years and now we are doing "some work" on her to freshen up and or improve.

We are doing the work ourselves and since we suffer amateur status on this topic find it slow going but anticipate it being worth the efforts.

Anyways, We are very excited and while not likely to be able to attend with boat the event this year we may make a genuine attempt to drive down.

We live in Oneonta, NY and sail Otsego lake in Cooperstown, just up the road.

Please add us to your group's mailing list and feel free to share our address and info around to the group.

Say hi and if we can help let us know.

I sent an email to "Capn Pete" with a request to be on your mailing list and our contact info as well.

We REALLY look forward to learning this whole sailing/ ownership thing.

If you are ever headed our way say hi.

Ed & Lori​

Ok folks, we made it a day early to Greenport. Sterling marina looks nice. Floating docks, nice looking Italian restaurant, ice, pool, and fuel. The town moorings are right outside the marina and they get $1.00/ft/night. Here's the number for the town moorings:

631-375-5845

Ken is the harbormaster and he's a real nice guy.

See you all there!
