Greetings Everyone!
Dreaming of cooler weather? Make those dreams come true! Book your slip now for the “Smell the Flowers- Mumfest Boat Party” cruise. The cruise is October 9 -11, 2015. We will be staying at New Bern Grand Marina. The marina is adjacent to the DoubleTree Hotel and is in easy walking distance to the festival. The festival is very popular and the marina often has a waiting list for boats wanting slips during this event. We already have four boats signed up!! Slip fees are $2.00 per foot per day. However, if you are a member of Boat US the rate is $1.50 per foot per day. Electricity is $3.00 per day. You may also anchor out and use your dinghy. Those wishing to make a reservation should call Nancy at 252-638-0318 or email her at marina@newbernhilton.com. Tell her you are with the Sailing Club of Oriental so that she can attempt to put us in adjacent slips. Please let us know when you make a reservation. We’ll have detailed information on the cruise closer to the actual date. Questions? Give us call or email us.
See you on the water!
