That'll be great Allen. Remember to polish up that anchor!!!
Slip fee update:
First, the bad news: Slip fees are $2.00 per foot. Per night. Yikes!!! This is the same rate as last year.
Now, the good news: As the chief instigator, director of shenanigans and head of the warm weather hydration counsel, I am offering to split the fee with you for Friday night. If you choose to stay longer, the additional nights would be your responsibility. I have already reserved 5 slips on a handshake from Sean, the harbormaster. I would like an actual number of slips needed so I can nail it down by next week sometime.
The itinerary, if there was one, would be to meet on Friday during the day. Last year anyone who needed to launch met at Townsends Marina where there is a 5 bucks in and 5 bucks out fee. Parking is available. At some point in time, the boats who would be staying in the Southwinds slip would meet there and check in. Dinner will be at Latitudes and I'll make a reservation for all of us. Hopefully, the weather is good so we can dine outside. The boat slips are just a short stagger away from Latitudes.
On Saturday morning, we'd have our choice of going to breakfast or just sailing over to Tice's to reserve a spot. We usually anchor out a bit south of all the yahoos so it's a little quieter. Once over at Tice's, there's the customary swim in the mighty North Atlantic as well as just hanging on the beach. Remember, there is no restaurant at Tice's Shoals. Any food or drink you want should be brought aboard your ships. Tice's is on Island Beach State Park, a barrier beach which is quite rustic.
Let me know how this sits with y'all. I'm sorry for leaving this until the next to the last minute...lots of stuff going on. So, what say ye? Are ya with me??
