One of our most popular events of the summer is always the annual KYC cruise to Edgartown over the July 4th weekend. With this year’s Wednesday holiday, many of the KYC boats will be going for 4 or 5 days. You can stay as long as you like! Mooring reservations for Edgartown Harbor open at 8:00AM on Thursday, March 1st, only on dockwa.com. Dockage reservations open at 10:00AM on February 15th, also on dockwa.com.
Activities in Edgartown this year will include dinghy trips to Chappaquiddick Island / Cape Poge Bay, parade viewing at the Harbor View Hotel, and a fireworks party on the night of the 4th.. Please contact Jerry Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions and to confirm your arrival date and Edgartown location (slip, mooring or anchoring).
The KYC Boat Parade
Dress your boat for the holiday and join us at the head of the Kingman/Parkers channel at 11:00AM on the 4th. We’ll parade past the reviewing stand on the Kingman front docks, and we’ll have prizes for the most patriotic and best dressed boats.
The 2nd Annual KYC Raingutter Regatta
Lung-powered racing sailboats will replace the Cardboard Regatta this year. Stay tuned for details.
The Greasy Watermellon Challenge!
Just so the guys don’t feel left out. First one back to the beach with the watermelon wins!
Following the waterfront activities, Kingman Boaters meet back at the Clubhouse for an old-fashioned, family barbeque. Please bring a side dish to share.
An old-fashioned drive-in movie – just the way you remember them. Only wetter.
The movie will be projected onto the wall of the big shed facing the front face docks, and the soundtrack will be broadcast on 90.3 FM. Watch it from your boat, or pull up a chair on the “lawn” next to the travel lift.
It’s more FREE fun from Kingman Yacht Center!
