The Raritan Bay Float-in,
hosted by the Northeast Fleet, will take place Saturday and
Sunday, September 24-25, 2005. If conditions are favorable,
we will form a raft-up in the anchorage south of the breakwater
and mooring field at Atlantic Highlands, NJ. This area is indicated
on the chart facsimile above (click on the chart thumbnail). If
we can't raftup, and that's quite often the case, captains have
the option of anchoring separately or renting moorings from the
AHYC then crews will gather on the "host" vessel.
If you'd like a mooring rather than anchoring, they are available
from the Atlantic Highlands Yacht
Club, (phone: 732-291-1118), for $35 per
night. This fee gets you unlimited use of the yacht club launch,
access to the shore facilities, which include showers and rest
rooms, guest privileges in the AHYC clubhouse, and access to the
club dock. Please contact the YC to reserve your mooring. The
yacht club's launch driver monitors VHF Ch. 9.
The launch will be available from 8:00 a.m. to midnight on Saturday,
8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Dinner will be potluck and shared amongst the rafted crews. So
please bring snack/meal items to be shared. Don't forget to bring
your preferred beverages!
Let's do breakfast together ashore on Sunday morning.
Please monitor VHF Ch. 16 and 72 for fleet communications.
There are no registration fees associated with this event. But
ONLINE or contact Cathy
Monaghan via e-mail or at 732-381-3549 and let her
know if you'll be there.
