Dear Friend of CHARIAD:

The Gloucester Tall Ships Festive is this weekend. Tall ships from the East Coast are in Gloucester to the Festival.

Weather Sunday will be great. A fun day for a sail.

Join me for a Social Sail to watch the Tall Ships race off Gloucester Sunday.

Social Sailing Details

On Dock Time

11:00 AM


Boston Yacht Club, One Front Street, Marblehead


On street parking is available near the BYC. Allow time to find parking and to get to the club.

Food & Drinks

If you want to eat it or drink it, bring it. Plus some to share. Bring water. Think camping.


Nice summer day, but always cooler on the water. Windbreaker is good addition.


VERY IMPORTANT  If you want to be on board, you have to be at the BYC at 11:00 AM. The launch service will only take us out as a group. If you come later, you will not be able to come out to the boat.


Let me know if you can come. We have room for a limited number of folks on board, and I need to keep track of who is planning to be there.

We should be back by about 5 PM, but we will be on a sailboat.

I hope you can come.
