For the 2017 cruise season we hope to have 7 or 8 weekend cruises, a big TGIF Raft-Up at Duck Island,  plus a 2 week summer cruise to ports unknown. 

Cruise Reports - we encourage cruise leaders and participants to submit photos and a summary of any DIYC cruise to diyc.webmaster@gmail.com.

 

CRUISE NOTICE BOARD

Notices (newest first):

3/23/17 - The fireworks that would usually occur on July 15 at Three Mile Harbor, the Great Bonac Fireworks Show sponsored by The Clamshell Foundation, is up in the air this year.  They still want to do it, but need to raise the funds to do so. See this 1/31/17 article from the East Hampton Press.  This is an article from 2016 explaining why the 2016 fireworks were not held.

3/22/17 - Fireworks - The  Fourth of July fireworks at Block Island are on July 2.

3/21/17 -  Lois Glazer, our new Rear Commodore Cruise, has produced a 2017 Cruise Schedule. In the schedule you'll notice a few  "TBDs" for Cruise Leaders or gray fonts signifying last year's cruise leaders.  Many cruisers in the past have stepped up to lead their favorite cruises and if you wish to do so in 2017 please contact Lois at  cruise.chairman@diyc.com and we'll post your name as Cruise Leader.
