      Looks like mooring costs have gone up. Parkers at RedBrook and P-Town
      Marina both are charging $45 a night.

      Yeah, I know, it's a boat...

        'Course you don't get the launch service or the showers, unless you
        sneak in when noone ones looking.

        We were there last fall for our annual Pig Roast (Private Catering,
        rented a piece of Parkers Yard). I was really happy I had a 8 HP OB
        on my dinghy getting across all that chop! Winds were around 20 or so
        kts from the NE, so even the moorings weren't very quiet, as per
        other club members who did take a mooring.

            I'm not sure. Last year I was down there and the fuel docks had a 20
            limit, not unusual. I did not notice anyplace else to tie up the big
            boat at Kinngman. We took the inflatable over to the diny dock for
            dinner at the Chart Room.

              This is the quintessential national women’s sailing conference. Women travel from all over the country to attend this event and those of you reading this, most of you live close enough to make it a day trip.

                  Women on the water

                  The Bitter End Yacht club has just announced the 2007 dates for their 16th Women on the Water Week. This year?s event will take place Oct. 20-26, right before the popular Pro-Am regatta. The Women on the Water Week is a chance for women of all sailing skill levels to take lessons from big-boat cruising specialist Pam Wall; world-class foredeck crew and sailing racer Martha Parker; and Betsy Alison, five-time U.S. SAILING Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year, and coach of the U.S. Disabled Sailing Team. Bitter End?s Women on the Water Week boasts a unique format that includes a skills assessment, one-on-one tutorials and cruising clinics. In addition, participants will start each day with an energizing fitness program, followed by a short information session, or ?chalk-talk,? that will cover all aspects of skippering, sail trimming, sail changing, crewing and teamwork.
                   
                  To participate, contact the Bitter End at 800.872.2392 and check out their website at
                   
                   
                  On Saturday Oct. 27 the 2nd our Bare Boat Charter vacation begins. So far 16 people and 2 boats (Lagoon 440 Catamaran's) are booked. Crew for boat #3 is developing.  Anyone interested, contact me Catalina30Ruby@...
