Open Blue Water Boat Weekend - a joint event

June 21-23, 2019

Essex Yacht Club

Essex, CT

 

The Open Blue Water Boat Weekend is a three-day event being held in association with the Seven Sea Cruising Association (SSCA), the Salty Dawg Sailing Association (SDSA), and the Ocean Cruising Club (OCC) to bring like-minded cruisers together for a series of seminars broadly focused on the cruising lifestyle as well as social activities.

 

For the last six years, Bob Osborn and his event partner, George Van Drasek, have put on a three-day event in Essex in association with SSCA at the Essex Yacht Club (EYC). Essex is located approximately 6 miles up the Connecticut River on the eastern end of Long Island Sound, approximately 25 miles from Block Island. It is a very popular destination for east coast US sailors and yacht club cruises.

 

For the event’s seventh year, the above organizations with complementary missions are collaborating to produce an event that focuses on blue water cruising, preparation, safety and selected destinations, with the goal of bringing more skippers and families to the blue water voyaging and cruising lifestyle.
