We’re Heading to Crisfield, MD on July 4th
Somers Cover Marina (www.somerscovemarina.com) has a brand new floating dock designated as G dock. At the land end of G dock is a tented picnic area that will be perfect for our dock party Friday night. The slip rate is $1.25 per foot per night, plus $5 per night for a single 30-amp shore-power connection. Reservations must be made by the individual skipper and requires a credit card to hold the reservation. You can call Bonnie at 800.967.3474 or make your reservation online through their website. Even if you call with your reservation, you should visit the website as it has interesting and relative information.
Whether you call or reserve online please state that you are with the RPYC so you will be in our group on G dock. After you make your reservation, please e-mail Commodore Jim Lassiter so he can compile a Crisfield flotilla roster. The awesome fireworks show that Crisfield is noted for will be on Saturday night which makes Friday a perfect time for our much beloved dock party.
