Sick of snow and cold weather? Here's a warm thought to help get you through the winter....


It's official. The 9th annual rOnDAYvous will be held July 15-17 at Newport Yacht Club & Marina in Jersey City, NJ.

It's my homeport, and I'll be delighted to serve as on-site host for the big get-together. There's plenty to do, both on site and just across the river in the Big Apple. (We have a field trip or two in mind.) Lots of good eats, good shopping nearby, and all with a million-dollar view of the world's greatest skyline.

Marina management is setting aside plenty of slips for the O'day fleet, and I can assure you that the hospitality we'll enjoy is the equal of any we've been shown to date.

Mark the dates on your calendar NOW -- in pen! As the weeks pass, more info will be forthcoming, along with the return of The rOnDAYvous Report e-newsletter.

I don't know about you, but I can't wait!

I'm hoping to make it to the Rondayvous this year. Even if the crossing takes 8 hours to cross the bay and head up the Hudson, we can spend the next day enjoying and then head back Sunday to prepare for work the following day.  It is doable!


Hope to meet you face to face.

Granted, your "Lil Provo" is a good 10 feet shorter than my O'day, but the crossing from your homeport to mine should take you a good deal less than 8 hours. I keep my boat in winter storage at Morgan Marina on Cheesequake Creek, and can usually make the trip to or from there to Jersey City in about 6, including time lost to drawbridge openings.


FYI, Newport Marina is only about a mile or mile and a half north of the Battery. Details will be forthcoming in The rOnDAYvous Report e-newsletter.

I hope you're still planning to come to the rOnDAYvous. If so, you should act quickly to reserve a slip for the weekend. (I hear they're likely to go quickly.) A credit card number is needed to hold the reservation, but your account won't be charged until you check in -- or cancel in advance.


See you there.





I made the trip this past weekend from Cheesequake Creek (Morgan Marina) to Jersey City in just under 5 hours. Can't imagine you'd have any trouble with the journey.


See you at the rOnDAYvous.



A new edition of the e-newsletter "The rOnDAYvous Report" is available. If you're not on the rOnDAYvous e-mail list, shame on you! But don't fret -- you can download the issue here.



Pete, Looking forward to this years rondayvous... any

 tips on making the trip from RI?


Hey Joe,


I saw that you've already reserved a spot for the weekend. That's really great!


My best suggestion for making the trip from RI would be to hook up with Bill and Patty Coxe (Kukulcan II) out of New London. I'm not sure when they're starting their trip to Jersey City, but Bill has said he'd be willing to serve as coordinator for a Long Island Sound flotilla. You can reach Bill at wlcoxe at yahoo dot com. They're currently making their way up the ICW from North Carolina, so e-mail acquisition might be a bit spotty, but he'll get back to you, for sure.


If I can think of other options, I'll let you know. See you soon.
