RKYC Cruise 2022

July 30, 2022 – August 7, 2022 all-day


Connecting: joining or linking people or things together

RKYC Cruise Week 2022 is intended to revisit the camaraderie that the RKYC Members have shared for 128 years.  The events of the cruise have been organized to help bring us be a collective again. What better backdrop than relaxing the day away cruising the Rhine of North America and reconnecting with old friends and making new ones at evening social gatherings.  Here’s what we have in store for you…

FRIDAY JULY 29 – Why be late on Saturday when you can be early on Friday?   Consider this the Unofficial Start to Cruise Week we have selected MacCormack’s Cove as the Anchorage to get the party started.  Get off the dock and be ready to enjoy the week.  We expect a large contingency of Cruiser’s and those just out for a weekend of fun to partake… Who knows? Might be the party of the year!

SATURDAY JULY 30 – Weigh anchor and head upriver with a layover on the Long Reach at Yip Cidery for a tasting tour at their beautiful venue then make way to Whelpley’s Cove for a Wine Tasting presented by Trafton Agencies and a Best Appetizer Challenge at Paul Heustis’ picturesque riverside Glenwood Dock and Beachfront.

SUNDAY JULY 31 – Set sail (or power) for a journey to Big Cove, Wahsademoak Lake where we will invade the Private Beach of Gary & Laurel Smith who have Graciously offered to host Commodore Fraser Forsythe’s Party… Bring your chalice and enjoy a cupful of punch.

MONDAY AUG 1 – After a leisurely cruise to Lawson’s Passage the afternoon will begin with water games, tube towing and the fishing derby.  Graham McKenney, our resident Mixologist will be taking us on a cocktail journey as we learn to make some new magic potions… there may even be one more surprise coming your way… Stay Tuned!

TUESDAY AUG 2 – After a short trip to Gilbert/Ox Island get settled as the fun is about to begin… jump in your dingy and make your way to the transoms of Reel Nauti, Irish Wake and Phat Bottomed Girl as Rock n’ Roll Cowgirl entertain us for the annual Dingy Party.

WEDNESDAY AUG 3 – After the Dingy Party a really short voyage is likely in order… just a few miles away Games Day will take place at Middle Island. After the kids have had their fun the Batten, Seale and Holtzman Families welcome you to enjoy a steaming of clams & mussels accompanied by a corn boil on the beach.  ‘Sing-along Guitar-ioke’ and a bonfire to follow.

THURSDAY AUG 4 – Gagetown is our next gathering venue.  Book dock space, a mooring, or head to Lawson’s and dingy in but be sure to spend part of your late afternoon at the Beachless Margaritaville Beach Party where the Gagetown Marina has organized drink specials and a casual “all you can eat”  Cheeseburger in Paradise and Taco dinner.  The theme is come as a beach bum and have fun!

FRIDAY AUG 5 – Time to start making our way back down-river.  The next stop is Jenkin’s Cove, Bellisle Bay.  Nothing fancy planned but these tend to end up being the wildest times and the best of memories.

SATURDAY AUG 6 – Official End of Cruise Week but I heard through the grapevine that Barlow’s is the place to be.  Why head home when there’s still weekend to enjoy.  See you there if you dare!

Be sure to register for the cruise, let us know who will be on board (if any children let us know names and ages and if a sitter is requested), what events you are planning to attend, order your Cruise Week T-shirts and the Beach Party in Gagetown.
