We are closely monitoring the current covid-19 situation and because of that, there is a reasonable possibility we may not be able to have a GAM in May. You will be advised of further details and the opening of registration when we can confirm it's a go or no go.
As is the tradition of the Boston Station, we have again planned a GAM over Memorial Day weekend.
Dates: Saturday, May 23rd and Sunday, May 24th, 2020
Saturday: The fleet will anchor off of the Great Hill pier on the northeast side of the point. Nicely protected from the typical Buzzards Bay southwesterly. At approximately 1400 in the afternoon, people will be invited to join a tour of the Great Hill dairy, cheese production barn (if the owner is onsite) and Peter Stone’s art studio. It will be about a 0.9 mile walk each way. After the tour, we will return to the pier area where there is a large bathhouse where we can have a cocktail party and fire on the beach. Boats will be asked to bring an hors d'oeuvre for the cocktail party. At sunset all will retire to their boats for dinner.
Sunday: From Great Hill, we will sail south to Padanaram Harbor where we will moor for the evening. You will make your own mooring arrangements with the New Bedford Yacht Club. Mooring are $55.00 per night which includes launch service. We will be enjoying dinner that evening at the New Bedford Yacht Club in Padanaram. Cash bar and dinner cost TBD.
Those not able to sail to these events are welcome to drive and join in the activities.
