Cape Dory Sailboat Owners Association






November 22: Great Lakes Fall Meeting

Rochester, New York
1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

The Cape Dory Board has come in handy this summer keeping track of some of your activities. Mike Ritenour recently returned from a summer-long journey to the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Newfoundland. John Dunn keeps us roaring in our seats with his sailing tales and battles with the C-Nile virus ;-). Peter Kozup has been busy this summer moving his son into his new home. Brian McGowan has forwarded his plans for a CD25 cradle. Leo MacDonald (CDSOA Secretary} hasn't found home yet - he's wanted in Niagara Falls, NY (work) and Lisbon, Connecticut (family). Dave VanDenburgh is looking for a flasher, cruising spinnaker or something to get his boat moving faster in light airs. Ed Haley has finally got his wife Cindy to enjoy (well, maybe that's stretching it a bit) sailing and took a nice cruise through the Bay of Quinte.

It just goes to show you the benefit of an online message board to keep us all abreast of information as to our whereabouts. Catherine Monaghan has been an able and efficient webmaster in keeping this website popular.

The Great Lakes Fleet was not able to launch an initial sail this summer so we could get to know each other a bit better, but this CD Board has served to keep us all notified of happenings. Maybe we can come up with a way to cruise together next summer - even if it means we get together by driving to a place as Mike Ritenour suggests. Let's talk about it at a Great Lakes Fleet Fall Meeting on November 15th, from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m..

The Rochester Yacht Club is located near the mouth of the Genesee River as it enters Lake Ontario. Mike Ritenour has volunteered to present the first "CD Show/Tell Experience" of his exciting trip to Newfoundland at the meeting. I'm not sure if you were following his narratives on the CD Board, but Mike has information for all of us if we ever want to do any extensive sailing to a distant fantasy. His sharing of his experience will benefit us all. I'm sure you won't want to miss it.

Plan for the November 15th meeting now! We'll listen to Mike, plan for next year and then have dinner together. There are many nautical prizes to be given away at the meeting. These gifts from a few merchants were donated to us for our cancelled CanDependence Cruise.

Please send me an email before October 15th if you are sure you'll be able to attend. We need to know how many will attend so we can set aside a room capable of holding us.

Anyone interested in attending this meeting should contact Ed Haley at:

6386 Karlen Road
Rome, NY 13440
