2016 - 2017 Cruising Calendar

Cruise to the Manatee River Anchorages.  October 14, 15 & 16. 

Hosted by Bill & Elaine Cullen on TRIUMPH.


Let’s make this a three day weekend!  Take that Friday off work, and sail with us down to the Manatee River.  We will have fun hanging out at Emerson Point Park, and at Fort Desoto National Monument.  I expect the weather will be terrific for cruising in October.  We should have plenty of wind for sailing, and the sleeping temperatures will be nice.  Why would you even consider working on this particular Friday?


Tampa Sailing Squadron will host beer and wine and plentiful hors d’ouevres on Friday night aboard TRIUMPH.  On Saturday evening, TSS will again provide lots of snacks and hearty appetizers for our traditional “dinghy drift” at 5PM .  BYOB to the dinghy drift.  A dinghy drift is where we raft all the dinghies together for happy hour and let the wind and current take us for a walkabout.


On the north shore is Emerson Point Preserve.  There are lots of trails to hike at Emerson Point, a lookout  tower, and some great history to the area.  Fort Desoto National Monument is also available on the south shore for exploring and learning about the history of Desoto and his crew. 


Sign up on the “Sign up Sheet” in the club house, or email Bill Cullen at cullesailor@gmail.com


I will not have phone coverage between Sept 20 and Oct 10th, so emails only until I return from Oct 10.
