Hello Liberty Sailors! 

This Labor Day weekend is our clubs fall social sail on the Chesapeake. For those of you unfamiliar with the format a group of members arrange to charter some boats from Rock Hall, MD and spend the long weekend around and about the Chesapeake. Where we go and where we stay is all determined by the crew and the weather, and usually decided at a Skipper's meeting Saturday morning. Destinations could be slips at St. Michael's, Annapolis, Baltimore or elsewhere... or anchoring out in Shaw Bay, or the Magothy, West, or Corsica Rivers.

Some Club members bring their own boat - Please register for this no-cost option so we all know who's coming.

General plan is to leave the marina in Rock Hall Saturday morning and return Monday afternoon.  Typically the boat is available for Friday sleepover.  
Its a fun weekend and a great chance to get experience with chartering cruising yachts. Check out this video from the 2018 Fall Topper.

Each boat will need a captain with cruising experience/training to reserve the boat. The cost to charter the boat is usually around $400-500 per person, depending on the crew size and the boat.  We charter from Haven Charters (410-639-7140).  The better boats usually get taken early, so don't delay.

Prices include Haven's discount for Liberty Sailing Club. Most of these boats include three double berths and accommodate one or two additional people in the salon. Of course final costs will vary by boat depending on the final crew size. Crews are also responsible for their own incidental costs, such as provisioning the boat and paying slip fees should they decide to reserve slips at any marinas.

Please register to reflect your interest as soon as possible so we can gauge the response and confirm with Haven. We will be taking a $100 deposit at registration to confirm interest; the remaining balance will be due shortly after we confirm the boat reservations. These charter trips are always an excellent way to try out different boats and explore the beautiful Chesapeake bay.

Please indicate when you register if you are interested in being a captain.
