Rendezvous Info:

  The Great Lakes Fleet of the CDSOA, Inc. is hosting the CanDependence Cruise, June 28-July 6, to kick off a series of events this summer and fall. All Cape Dory owners, both members and non-members, and families are welcome to attend.

The CanDependence Cruise is officially 9 days long but it is not necessary to travel the entire length of the trip. You can join us at any point in the cruise and travel as long or as far as you like. To register, return the registration form by June 15th to assure that you receive a T-shirt in your size. Your only prerequisite is that you own a CD sail or power boat. You do not need to be a CDSOA member to join us in this cruise. For additional information or if you will be arriving at any of the rendezvous destinations by car, please contact:

And if you'd like to crew on one of the participating Cape Dorys, please let us know and we'll find a berth for you.
