September has arrived and we have already experienced Tropical Storm Idalia which brought lots of rain and high water. We are watching closely the path of Hurricane Lee and hoping it will track northerly by the time you receive this Neuse Juice. Let’s hope this large storm stays well off our coast! The Labor Day Cruise was a great success with fun had by all who were able to get out to Cape Lookout! ( we didn’t make it ) Thanks to VC’s of Cruising Tracy and Robert and to Cruise Captains John, Cyndy, Wade and Amy for planning and organizing the event! I understand the "Nacho Averge Social/Nacho Bar" on the beach made for a memorable social! And thanks to all who attended! Remember that the Fall Cruise to Southwest Creek (South River) is the weekend of September 29th . This is a great anchorage with plenty of room and well protected! Cara, Jason, Marie and Buddy are the Cruise Captains so I’m certain it will be a fun weekend!

This year has moved by quickly but we still have several big events to round out the year! The 50th Anniversary celebration was this past weekend (I am written this before the event) and expect a large crowd! Thanks to Donna/Carl Crothers,

Pat Sordil/Jeff Kenyon, Ros/Howard Cheetham and the lovely and talented Sharon Stephenson for their help in planning and organizing this Celebration! October 13, 14 and 15 brings the Oriental Cup Regatta which I hope we have a good turnout from the NSA. It would be great to have a fleet of NSA boats to enter the Pursuit Race but if you can’t do that please attend Saturday nights Dinner/Social. This Regatta is very socially oriented. Also the NSA serves Bloody Marys and Mimosas at the Sunday morning awards presentation which the club has been doing for many years!!

And there is the Halloween Cruise to Beaufort being organized by Erik/Jean Hardtle & Rob/Sharon McDonald which is sure to be a fun time!

Also we will be posting updated information about the Commodore’s Ball on November 11th at Stanly Hall in New Bern!!‚Äč

Thanks to all of you for your contributions, support and attendance to the Neuse Sailing Association! We have a marvelous club that has weathered the test of time and that is because of you and all the past members !!!

If you ever have any questions/concerns about NSA please contact me!
