Sunapee, NH – The Lake Sunapee Cruising Fleet is hosting its 2nd Annual Lake Sunapee Sailing Day on Saturday, July 13, to promote sailing fun on Lake Sunapee. All sailboats from sunfish to cruisers to racers are welcome to join a “Poker Cruise.”
The “Poker Cruise”
Sailboats are invited to rendezvous at the Lake Sunapee Cruising Fleet Committee Boat just outside Sunapee Harbor at 1 p.m.
At the Committee Boat each sailboat will receive a map of the course and instructions.
Boats will sail to four marks and back to the Committee Boat. At each mark and the Committee Boat each boat will receive a playing card. The Committee Boat and four power boats anchored at the four marks will be adorned with balloons and easy to locate.
Following the cruise, each crew is invited to bring their “poker hand” to a reception sponsored by the Lake Sunapee Cruising Fleet at Pete’s Shed at Sunapee Harbor from 4 to 6 p.m. There will be food and refreshments. Prizes will go to the best “poker hands” and best themed crew costumes.
The Lake Sunapee Cruising Fleet is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to the sport of sailboat racing on Lake Sunapee and creating friendships. It has been in existence since 1984.
All participating sailboats must meet all vessel requirements as outlined in the Boater’s Guide of New Hampshire. The weather day is Sunday, July 14.
