This year’s rendezvous takes place in the
picturesque town of Essex, CT on the western shore of the scenic
Sunday evening we’ll gather at The
Chandlery at Essex for a group Welcome
Barbecue on their dock.
CALLING ALL MUSICIANS/WANNABES/PRETENDERS/ENTERTAINERS!
Pack your guitar, your ukulele, your banjo, whistle, flute, drum
when you head for the rendezvous at Essex. Make a 'joyful noise'
during the barbecue! Sally Perreten will bring her Irish harp,
Paul's packing his whistle, Fleet Captain Bob Emmons will be at
the keyboard, and we need you to join us. You can play/sing/dance
with us, or on your own, or in your own group. A musical free-for-all.
A chance to show off what you do when you aren't sailing. A chance
to...ay yi yi .....get in touch with your (ahem) inner performer.
Monday morning we'll start things off with a tour of some of
Essex's historic homes, then pack your own lunch and hop aboard
one of our 'host' Cape Dorys and we'll head farther up river and
raft-up in scenic Hamburg Cove. Later,
in the afternoon, we'll tour the Connecticut
River Museum. You're on your own for dinner, then we'll
meet at the Griswold Inn where we'll
enjoy their live entertainment and libations.
Tuesday morning and afternoon we have a couple more shore excursions
planned followed by a group dinner in the Main
Dining Room and Covered Deck
of the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club.
This year's speaker will be Dixon Hemphill.
Dixon was acquainted with Carl Alberg and will provide an anecdote
or two about Carl as well as few stories about Watch Hill, RI.
