2023 Summer Cruise

2023 New England Summer Cruise

The fleet from The Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia headed north this July for a week of sailing and socializing from Connecticut to Nantucket. The itinerary made it easy for people to join the cruise by both boat and car.

The cruise started in Mystic Ct on July 20 with a very special presentation at the Mystic Seaport Museum. Members Richard Rosenfeld and Maggie Andersen have been big supporters of the museum and the museum owns the full Rosenfeld collection of nautical photos. The museum is currently restoring and preserving the more than 1,000,000 photographs taken by Richard’s father, uncles, and grandfather. The project team gave us a “behind-the-scenes” tour of the project and then we were able to see the collection as it is currently displayed at the Chapel at the shipyard.

From Mystic, the fleet sailed to Jamestown RI and were hosted once again by Laura and Jack Gregg at their beautiful home in Jamestown.

Then on Sunday we moved to South Dartmouth, MA and were hosted by Kathy and Jeff McCarron at their beautiful home on Mishaum Point. With good fellowship, beautiful locations, and perfect weather, both events remind us how lucky we are to be members of this great community.

On Monday July 24th, the fleet headed offshore and sailed to Edgartown MA on Martha’s Vineyard. While there were no formal events scheduled, many members gathered for dinner at local restaurants and at the Edgartown Yacht Club where we have reciprocity.

On Wednesday, the fleet sailed to Nantucket and gathered Wednesday night at Cisco Brewery for a fun evening of beer, music, and lobster.

Then on Thursday the 27th, our last event was a wonderful party hosted by Commodore Sandy and Scott Adzick at their home on Nantucket. Great food, wonderful friends, and again, perfect weather made for a most memorable evening.

And with that, the summer cruise came to an end and yachts left Nantucket for parts throughout New England. 

A very special recognition for Richard Rosenfeld and Maggie Andersen. After years of sailing on the Chesapeake in their Tartan 38 Blew Bayou, they headed offshore for the first time and spent the summer sailing all around MA, RI, CT, and NY before heading back to Oxford. Well done Richard and Maggie. What a great summer adventure you had.

Richard and Maggie Rosenfeld are all smiles after their most excellent adventure!
