Typical Shakedown Cruise Participants


Shakedown Cruise


@ the Wilmington City Docks

March 16-18 (Fri-Sun) 

 “As this weekend is the official St. Patrick’s Day weekend downtown, we can expect lots of activities and possibly a parade and the Cape Fear will run green. Other activities will include docktails, group dinners, group breakfasts, dog walks, shopping, drone flyovers, discussing your latest medical procedure and eating. Basically, I have no idea what we will be doing, but I will make up a credible schedule in the coming weeks. Just be there.”

Cruise the Chesepeake
Location: Chesepeake Bay
Date and Time: May 22 - June 18

Although the cruise is a couple of  months away please indicate your interest as soon as possible because most of the marinas are short on dock space and need reservations right away.  Annapolis for example will not hold slips beyond the end of this month without a firm reservation and deposit.  So we ask that you sign up now even if there's a chance you will need to cancel.

Dockage has been reserved for 10 boats at all marinas and each require a deposit to hold slips.  If you sign up and have to cancel - a minimum of 5 days is required or you will have to pay for one nights slip fee.

In planning , if for some reason you cannot do the entire cruise please come with us as long as you can and indicate your dates that you can participate.

Check out the itenerary here:  TBD
