11th Annual Northeast Rendezvous-Crocker"s Boatyard, New London, CT during 2017 SAILFEST.

I have talked to Crocker's, my homeport, and told them to expect about 10 boats for the Sailfest weekend. They are giving the AOG preferred rates and attached is the flyer that can be used to reserve a slip. For those of you that are not familiar with Sailfest it is a huge event where Bank street is closed and full of street vendors and there are other restaurants and bars. There is some shopping for those that do that sort of thing. Fireworks on Saturday night are sponsored by the casino and they are fantastic and with your slip you will have a front row seat.

It is a short walk to Bank street activities and a short taxi to Defender Marine or to the Nautilus Museum for a tour of the old nuclear sub. I can also arrange rides to Defender for anyone who would like to go as it is only a few miles from Crocker's.

I will post more later and you can always go online for Sailfest 2017 for more info.

The Nautilus museum would definately be a worthwhile stop. We were there with our A25 in June, 2015, having motored over from Norwest Marina in Pawcatuck & up the Thames to New London. Then later drove over to the museum by car from Weekapaug to tour the sub.

You think accommodations are tight on a small boat, try this:

Not exactly a Princess cruise.

Have fun guys, wish we could be there. Actually we're going back to Rhode Island again later this year by car, but not until September & not bringing the boat with us like last time.
