Mark your calendars!

Plans are still firming up for the 2011 CDSOA annual meeting in the City of Fairhope and sail on Mobile Bay. We will begin the festivities with the Commodore's reception and an old fashioned fish fry on Friday evening.

Early November is a wonderful time to be sailing on the upper Gulf Coast, and that is what we are planning to do all day Saturday, but there are also a lot of interesting things to do and see in the Fairhope vicinity for those who wish to stay ashore. Saturday night we will have dinner and our annual business meeting in the beautiful new facilities of the Fairhope Yacht Club.

There are many excellent lodging facilities in the Fairhope area, but we recommend that attendees take advantage of the special group rate that we have arranged at the just completed Hampton Inn, Fairhope, which is located less than a mile from our meeting site. You may make reservations online at or by phone at (251) 928 0956. Use group booking code CDY to obtain the special group rate.

The registration fee of $50.00 per attendee will cover use of the Fairhope Yacht Club facilities, the Friday night fish fry and the Saturday night dinner. We will be providing you with more information, including travel suggestions as plans develop, but for now we want to encourage you to register and let us know your boat preference for the Saturday sail. Most of the local members of the Central Gulf Fleet have agreed to make their boats available, and we are confident that we will have cockpit space for all to enjoy, but in making boat preference selections we will consider them in order of receipt. We look forward to sailing with all of you this November.
