An Evening Sail on Schooner SoundWaters
Chris Snyder, chairman, Social Events, reports that Gary Banks has arranged on evening sail on the schooner SoundWaters on September 27 from 5 p.m.-7 p.m., departing from Stamford. Included is a talk about the “Maritime History of Long Island Sound.”
Cost of the two-hour sail is $10 per person. There is space on board for a maximum of 40 people.
Participants are invited to bring their own snacks or beverages such as beer, wine and soft drinks.
Park in Boccuzzi Park, 200 Southfield Ave. Stamford. It is on the West side of Stamford. There is construction in the area, plus the usual I95 congestion through Stamford, so allow extra time. The boat sails promptly at 5. My GPS took me to Exit 6 then left on West, left on Selleck, and right onto Southfield. A crew member will be at the parking lot to give you a parking permit and escort you to the Soundwaters. It is a short walk. There are port-a-johns at the parking lot they ask you to use vs the on-board head. There are also public restrooms off the boardwalk at the Crab Shell.
Dinner after the sail is available at the Crab Shell or Prime – 46 Southfield Ave., Stamford. You can park at Prime/Crab Shell and walk 15 minutes south (to your right) on a pleasant boardwalk to the SoundWaters.
