2008 Cruising News

Larry and Maureen Davis are leaving the weekend of June 21 to sail Camden up the bay, with the specific goal of visiting Baltimore Harbor.

There is no finer way to spend a weekend, a week, or longer, than cruising with your friends and fellow boaters. Closely following last year’s successful calendar, the 2007 York River Yacht Club Cruise Calendar is outlined below. Continue reading
