May 24-26, 2014, Memorial Day Week End
This is CRSA's traditional introduction to cruising which includes lower cost due to the ability to drive to and from the marina instead of flying, and three days of sailing rather than the usual one to two weeks for more exotic cruises. The cruise is intended to be a learning experience for those who have not cruised before, and where everyone will have the opportunity for hands on sailing time.
The Chesapeake Bay provides historic Colonial ports with great restaurants and short sailing distances between stops.
We plan to use two boats, one chartered and the other generously provided by Al and Ruth Lawton:
"Audacia", a 41' Hunter with 2 cabins chartered from Norton Yacht Sales on the Rappahannock River in Deltaville, VA. You can learn more about this boat at the Norton web site. There will be 5 crew members on this boat. Captain-Dan Geiger
Al and Ruth's boat has two cabins and will accommodate 4 crew members. It is docked on the Potomac River. Captain- Al Lawton
Join us for several Trip Tales planned in 2014. Invite your friends!
The first two scheduled Trip Tales are planned to be held at the Lakes Edge Clubhouse 6:30 p.m.. (see address and directions below).

This is a two week Flotilla Cruise with Sunsail out of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Croatia is located on the Adriatic Sea, east of Italy on the Mediterranean. Captains are Dan Geiger and Jim Dinger.
Travel days are September 6 and 22. You may fly into Dubrovnik. The boats may be boarded at 1800 on Sept. 7 and we must leave the boats by 0900 on Sept. 21.
A flotilla cruise consists of 4-10 boats with a Sunsail-crewed lead boat. The lead boat is crewed by a multilingual Captain, mechanic with tools and parts, and a social director who will arrange beach parties and other activities. Each boat is free to come and go at will. Sunsail has reserved marina dock space at the various ports for flotilla boats.
The flotilla cost is $1848 per person, double occupancy, plus a refundable damage deposit of $125. Membership in Cave Run Sailing Association is required. The cost is based on 6 people per boat. The cost will increase if we have less than 6 per boat. Planned trip capacity is 12, but additional boats may be added if there is participant demand and qualified captains (ASA 104 or equivalent experience) are available. Current Round trip air from Lexington to Dubrovnik is approximately $1600. In addition, you may spend 2 nights in a hotel in Dubrovnik depending on your flight schedule.
We plan to charter 41', three cabin, 2 head boats. To see cruise details, go the Sunsail web site. At the bottom of the page under PRODUCTS, click Flotilla Sailing, then click Croatia, then click Dubrovnik.
