From October 18

The 2023 NAS New England Cruise is approaching faster than you might think.  We are beginning to finalize details with our event hosts, and the itinerary is 95% in place.  It looks to be a wonderful cruise – Narragansett Bay to Nantucket and back with more than half a dozen stops along the way.  Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Buzzards Bay all enjoy rich fishing, whaling and maritime histories which I am sure will be of interest to all.  We have incorporated ample time to visit each port and take in the sights, whether on foot, by bicycle or tour guide.  We have over 25 boats lined up and close to 100 people committed.  We expect the final number will top 150.

We also have secured a “mothership,” the Arabella.  This beautiful schooner has 18 cabins and first-class accommodations.   A separate communication has been sent with details about this wonderful option for participating in the cruise.

We are at that moment when we need to finalize our numbers…we need the “maybe/undecided” crowd to step up to the bar and commit to the cruise.  We are looking for 50% deposits to be made by January 15, 2023, after which time the cruise will be closed to new participants.  See below for details on how to sign up.
