Cruising week on the Chesapeake Bay after 2017 boat Show
"This year we are excited to announce our first annual After Show Cruise Week. We are teaming up with the Lake Hopatcong chapter in New Jersey, and planning a cruise week between our two events, starting off with several cruising spots on the Chesapeake and culminating in Lake Hopatcong.
We will be returning again this year to Alice Ryan's house on the Miles river on Monday. Tuesday, we will take our boats up the road to Easton, where we will launch and cruise the Tred Avon River to Oxford for lunch. This destination is close enough so those of you staying in the area can stay at your same location. Wednesday, we will pack up and head North to Havre de Grace, where we will launch our boats on the Susquehana and head up to the North East river for lunch at the Nauti Goose Restaurant. Havre deGrace offers beautiful waterfront dining, so Wednesday night we will meet at the Tidewater restaurant for dinner. Thursday, we will head to Lake Hopatcong where they have a boat parade Thursday evening, to kick off their show. Friday, can be spent exploring the area and lake, ending with a welcome reception at the Lake Hopatcong Yacht Club Friday evening. Saturday is the show and awards will be handed out Saturday evening.
We hope to attract as many boats as possible so people can enjoy two boat shows back to back. We will be getting all the details finalized in the coming weeks and will share them with you as soon as possible. So mark it on your calendar now and join us June 16th through the 25th.
George Hazzard, President CBACBS"
