The MSA had the first overnight cruise of the 2012 sailing season. We warmed up with a Friday night bonfire, although midway through, we had to relocate to the storage building so we could watch the spectacular lighting storm that passed through the night. After a filling breakfast at the Riverside Resort and some minor provisioning three boats , departed Walinaik Cove at 1:15 for Nackawic on Saturday June 30th. We travelled as far as Steeple Cove and had to tie up to allow for some minor thundershowers to pass through. We arrived at the newly built Mariners Point RV Park in Nackawick at 830, to enjoy a Pig Roast as well as live music by professional musician John Myshrall, of the band Flat Top. The night ended with a beautiful fireworks display at the RV park. It was thoroughly a fun and relaxing day. One great thing about staying at the RV park was that there were newly built shower facilities.
The MSA is pleased to be hosting a Basic Cruising Course (instructed by John Beal) to be held July 11 to 14 at the Mactaquac Sailboat Marina. We are looking to establish the level of interest in the course based on the plan outlined below:
1) Course to be from July 11 to July 14
2) Time. From 2 pm to 7 pm on Wednesday, July 11, Thursday, July 12, Friday July 13, and from 9 to 5 Saturday July 14
3) Course will follow the CYA Basic Cruising course as set out in the CYA web Site. On land and on water instruction.

Calling all Stations,
This is the Commodore…
We have the first MSA Cruise of the year happening tonight… Friday July 2nd
As you can read from Chris’ message below, the event is in honor of the late Jim Graham.
It looks like Steeple Cove… check back here or the white board at the marina for updates as it could move to Jewetts Cove. See details below.
The floatila leaves at 4pm but I will be motoring up around 6pm and expect to arrive in Steeple Cove around 8pm… provided I can find it! I too will monitor Channel 16.
