Greenwich Boat & Yacht Club Grass Island, Greenwich
Presented by Lt/C Bob Reilly AP from Mid-Hudson Squadron
In 2016 Disney produced “The Finest Hours”, the true story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s most daring sea rescue.
This presentation delves into the reasons that caused two ships to split apart within hours of each other on that date. The mid-latitude cyclone, the new design, and construction method, and the inexperienced builders all contribute to the accidents. Also covered are the four rescue attempts (3 at least somewhat successful) where 36-foot motorized lifeboats tackle 70-foot seas, and blinding snow & rain to find the four boat sections and save over 72 of 84 sailors.
Wednesday, November 15 at 7:30 pm.

All USPS and GBYC members and friends are invited to this extraordinary presentation – with our usual light refreshments

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.
