50th Anniversary Parade of Sail

Annapolis Harbor
August 9th, 2014

Please join us for our 50th anniversary parade of sail of our wonderful Alberg 30s on August 9th, 2014. We will use the National Sailing Hall of Fame (NSHoF) docks as our base.

Event Schedule

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

  • 1100 - 1145 Pickup passengers at NSHoF
  • 1150 - 1200 Assemble boats for parade off the USNA seawall
  • 1200 - 1300 Parade (Twice around the harbor)
  • 1300 - 1400 Dock/Raft at NSHOF
  • 1400 - ??? "Open Boat"/Food/Drinks at NSHoF Docks

Our parade route will take us from the outer harbor into Ego Alley for our turn around and back out to the outer harbor. See the Parade Sailing Instructions for a diagram of the course. At the conclusion, we will go back to the NSHoF for some food and drink and to display our wonderful boats for the dignitaries and general public to visit. See the the assigned dockage locations.

The Annapolis Harbor is open on a first come, first serve basis and they do not allow anchorage in the harbor proper. Anchorage is allowed in the outer harbor and up some way on Spa Creek. For the specific information please see: http://www.annapolis.gov/government/city-departments/harbormaster/facilities

We will try to help out with dockage pointers for the boats unfamiliar with the Annapolis Harbor area.

Folks who no longer have an Alberg are welcome to come and join the parade as part of the crew on one of the parade boats. We would like to hear from you, so that we can match you up with one of the parade boat skippers.

Please let me know by email or phone if you would like to crew or if you can accommodate guests on your boat. Most importantly let me know if you are planning to participate in the parade.

As part of the "Open Boat" we will run a slide show of "before and after" of what can be done with an Alberg 30 to encourage visitors toward Alberg ownership.

All parade inquiries should be directed to:

Shackleton's near-fatal journey to the Antarctic has received a lot of press in recent years. This is Shackleton's own account—quiet, understated, and riveting. It also describes the travails of the Aurora expedition, intended to lay the groundwork for Shackleton on the other side of the continent.
