Sail Past Protocol:

Boats will gather at Caulfield Cove at 10:30 at the latest and then follow the Fleet captain past the Commodore’s boat starting at 11:00 AM. The Commodore John Dixon will be anchored near a point close to the south east of Caulfield Cove. The Start will be announced by the Fleet captain on our communication Channel 69A and hopefully by a cannon discharge from Boqueron.

As you pass the Commodore you salute either by luffing your Jib or by dipping your ensign. Boats will then proceed to Snug Cove for the weekend. Upon arrival at Snug please contact the Marina on 66A for your berth assignment. We have rented the summer house and basement sweet for the nights of April 28,29th

Program at Snug:

Saturday celebrations begin at 4 PM at the summer house with a happy hour and appies. This is followed at 6:30 by a pot luck dinner. The Commodore is in charge of bringing the first drink for everyone for appies and usually brings the ham and buns and condiments for the Pot luck.

Club members bring appetizers, their own plates, their own cutlery and their own beverages. The pot luck needs to be further discussed in terms of members contributing main courses etc, but we will advise.

Sunday morning we will have coffee and sweets which will be provided for breakfast. For lunch and dinner we will probably go out or be on our own. The day will be spent shopping and hiking and carousing.

Beds : one king in the upper room, one single bed in the upper room, single bunk in main floor bed room and single window bed on main floor and the sofa.
