​Fall Cruise - Baltimore MD
October 6 - 9, 2023

Welcome to the Fall 2023 Fall Cruise.

Sailing in the Upper Chesapeake Bay will be delightful this time of year with members gathering in Whitehall Bay near Annapolis on Friday, October 6th to kick off the weekend.

Our raft up will provide the opening venue for food, festivities and fun. Plan to share an appetizer and create your favorite drink.

The Saturday raft-up will be in Broad Creek off the Magothy River.

NEW THIS YEAR:  Saturday will be a SPECIAL THEME DAY. We encourage all members to dress up and embrace a theme (movie, show, concert, decade...) Special consideration if the boat, crew AND drink are theme related. Note: theme day will be in lieu of our photography contest. 
Sunday we will make our way up the Patapsco River to the heart of Baltimore’s famed Inner Harbor. Slips will be available at Harbor East Marina (Look for orange flags on C Dock.) Captains should make their own reservations with the marina by calling 410-625-1700, or harboreastmarina@harboreast.com

Sunday evening we will take a short walk to the traditional awards dinner at Ampersea for an “authentic, modern Maryland dining experience.” The cruise will adjourn Monday morning, October 9, which is the Columbus Day holiday for many. 
Your homework is to establish a theme for your boat for Friday’s raft up! “Come on Barbie, Let’s Go Party.”
