GSPS-Raft-Up-2013-flat

What is a raft-up?  There will be an anchor boat moored at our mooring, and other boats come alongside and tie up. 

The main event will start at noon and all are invited to sail/power/kayak or hitch a ride to the mooring with a snack to share. Sail boaters should check tides/water depth and we can arrange to ferry you to the mooring from deeper water if necessary. 

No Boat?  No worries!  There’s room aboard.

Not a Greenwich resident? Let us know you’re coming and we can make arrangements with the Town.

Can’t get from shore to the mooring?  Call Dave 860-480-8222 from the Point and he will ferry you over.

Please email  GreenwichSquadron@gmail.com with your plans, or to request transportation.
