    The weekend of August 18 / 19 will be the SCOA Summer Rendezvous, to be held at the Quonset Davisville Navy Yacht Club (81 Wescott Road, North Kingston, RI 02852; 401-294-4912 ( www.qdnyc.com).

    Those arriving Friday night have the option of dining at the club or bringing your own food to cook using the club's outside grills.  Plenty of local restaurants to choose from, too, being so close to Newport. 

    Saturday will follow the pot-luck tradition; you will have the benefit of sitting down to your meal under the club's 40x60 tent (there at be other's sitting under it too, but there will be plenty of room for all).

    Slip fees are $1.50 / foot for non-members.  If anchoring is preferred, once you enter the harbor, to your right is the field; left to the slips.

    If you are looking for boat stuff, Wickford Marine Consignment is located close by at 7725 Post Road in North Kingston (401-295-9709) marineconsignment.com).

    Once you decide on your participation, let Andy Hammond know.  E-mail him at adrift136@gmail.com and let him know whether you are driving or sailing in, and whether you'll be in a slip or on a mooring.   

    Thanks to John Hacunda for jointly supporting this event,  and to John Walsh for his experience, guidance and work with the club to get us there.

    Plans are underway for a SCOA gathering at the Quonsett Davisville Navy Yacht Club in Allen Harbor.  Allen Harbor is a lovely, protected harbor just northwest of Jamestown with easy access to Newport and most of the sailing destinations in Narragansett Bay.

    Thanks to former SCOA Commodore Jack Walsh, we have been able to reserve the dates  of July 12-13 at the Quonsett Davisville Navy Yacht Club.  

    There will be slip space available and some space in an anchorage area.  The club has complete facilities including a full kitchen and dining area.  There are also walking trails and beach areas available to us.  We will have our own dinner on Saturday evening at the club.  On Sunday morning, the yacht club puts on a terrific breakfast at very reasonable cost.  And for those driving in, there is plenty of parking space.

    We are also planning a short cruise in Narragansett Bay after the rendezvous to which all SCOA members are welcome.  Some of our options include Potters Cove on Prudence Island, Dutch Harbor, Jamestown, Mount Hope Bay and the Kickamuitt.  

    Please join us!  We would love to see all of you.  If you have a special destination in/around Narragansett  Bay, please let us know.  We're sailors, we're flexible!

    If you would like to join us, please contact:
