The Raritan Bay Float-in, hosted by the Northeast Fleet of the
CDSOA, will take place Friday thru Sunday, September 29-October
will be on VHF Ch. 16 and 72.
Please monitor these channels during the event.
Hail “Cape Dory Fleet”.
If conditions are favorable, we will form a raft-up in the anchorage
south of the breakwater and mooring field in the municipal harbor
at Atlantic Highlands, NJ. This area is indicated
on the chart in Figure 1 below. If we can't raft-up,
and that's quite often the case, captains have the option of anchoring
separately or renting moorings then crews will gather on one or
two of the participating vessels.

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 should be available from noon till midnight on Friday,
8:00 a.m. to midnight on Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on
of: Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club
In the evening we'll all gather on one or two of the boats for
cocktails. So bring some snack items to share with the rest of
the group in the anchorage and the fixin's for your favorite beverage.
Then it's potluck for dinner. No, we don't throw everything into
one pot and whatever comes out is dinner, but whatever you bring
it’s what we'll have.
If everyone’s amenable, let’s do breakfast together
ashore on Sunday morning before heading out! We can decide during
Entry Fees (per boat):
CDSOA Members: NO
Non-CDSOA Members: $5.00
(pay at the event)
