    The Oriental Boat Show this year is in the Oriental Harbor Marina. Make sure you stop by the NSA tent. We also need NSA members to work shifts in the tent to greet potential members and answer questions. Please contact Donna Crothers, Vice Commodore of Membership if you'd like to help.

    More information about the boat show is available at www.orientalboatshow.com/

    Oriental’s annual In-water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009. The 2017 show drew over 100 exhibitors from as far away Hampton, Virginia, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers brought in boats on land and in the slips at Oriental Harbor Marina, many of which were available for in-water sea trials. For more info, see the Oriental Boat Show website.

    Vessel Safety Examinations

    Cape Lookout Sail and Power Squadron is partnering with NSA again to perform a vessel safety check on Saturday, April 13th 2019. Brian McLamb will be coordinating the examiners and skippers requesting the safety check by registering here. Be sure to sign up before the deadline on April 1 and include vessel location (marina), skipper and phone number.  The examining crew normally gets started around 0900 and will concentrate on vessels in marinas in and around Oriental; vessels will be checked off as they are completed. Thanks to the volunteers for performing this important check!

    NSA Easter Cruise

    NOTE: As you can see, this event is receiving strong interest.  NSA will be working with River Dunes on slip assignments on a first signed up first served basis to accommodate as many participants as possible. The Marina indicates they should be able to handle up to 25 boats.  After that point we will begin placing registrants on a waiting list.  The registration has also been updated to include a "land only" option, if you want to have dinner with NSA friends and can be used as a headcount for the restaurant.

    The NSA Easter Cruise will be April 20-21 at River Dunes this year.  This will be a good chance to check out all your systems: engine, sails, instruments, and charging systems. And your docking skills!

    For those with credits remaining from last years Heartworks event, you can use your credit with the marina. NSA will convey registration information to River Dunes, so PLEASE do not make a reservation yourself.

    We are developing a dinner plan for Saturday night, either as a buffet, or off the menu depending on River Dunes feedback and the size of our group.  Either way, please indicate your interest for dinner Saturday on the registration form.

    NSA Memorial Day Cruise

    The NSA Memorial Day Cruise will be May 25 - 27 at Cape Lookout this year.  We are swapping this location with the traditional Ocracoke location.  Memorial Day in Lookout and Labor Day in Ocracoke.  The hope is we will have cooler weather at the end of May for anchoring out and access to docks when it is hotter in September.

    Plans are tentative for onshore activities, and we are still looking for cruise captains (hint, hint).  Come prepared to share a dish, any water toys you enjoy, beach chairs, etc.  It is sure to be a great time, and kick off the meat of the cruising season.

    Dog Days Cruise

    For our middle-of-the-season Dog Days Cruise we'll have a little more time this year with July 4th falling on Thursday.  Hopefully your boss has given you the extra long weekend off!  The plans are tentative once we have a Cruise Captain, but the likely float plan is a run up the Bay River, into the Hobucken Cut (ICW), a turn to port entering the Pamlico River to Bath where we will stop for the night en-route to Little Washington.  We'll spend 2 nights in Little Washington, and then return to Oriental on Sunday.

    Labor Day Cruise
    The Labor Day Cruise this year finds us sailing back to one of our favorite destinations, Ocracoke Island. Boats will meet on the Neuse River for the ~40NM passage to Silver Lake in Ocracoke.  Slips at the Anchorage Marina and the Government docks as well as the anchorage are sure to be full with the NSA fleet flying their burgees.

    On Sunday we’ll have a social under the gazebo at the Anchorage Marina as we enjoy the action as well as the natural beauty of this special place.  Please plan to join us and bring your favorite appetizer, dish or dessert to share for this ever popular cruising destination.

    We will be running a lottery for slips at the Anchorage Marina similar to last year. All members requesting a slip are put into a spreadsheet and randomly selected by the computer.  Hopefully, like last year, we will have enough slips to accommodate everyone that requests a slip.

    Fall Cruise

    The Fall Cruise destination is still to be determined.  However, the current thought is possibly a cruise to West Bay off Cedar Island.  Or the destination of your choice as Cruise Captain!
