The News from New York...

      1999 maritime events are already beginning to be scheduled for the southern part of our cruising area. Here are a few of the events planned in and around New York. Please feel free to add some more of your own.

Seaport       The Starboard Watch Committee of the South Street Seaport Museum will hold an "America's Cup Wine Tasting" featuring wines from Australia, New Zealand and the USA in conjunction with a special viewing of the current exhibition of Beken of Cowes photographs in the Melville Gallery on Friday, February 19, 1999 from 6:30 until 8:30 PM at 213 Water Street on Manhattan. This is a benefit for the South Street Seaport Museum. If you want to attend give them a call (212-748-8738) before February 17th.

Ventura       The 33rd Annual Mayor's Cup Race for Schooners and Classic Yachts in New York Harbor will be held on Saturday, September 18, 1999. More information may be obtained from the race coordinator, David Rosenstock (212-748-8738) and there will be postings on the South Street Seaport Museum's Website.

Jubilee       Several new boats will be cruising in New York Harbor this year. In addition to his historic (1921) Herreshoff designed schooner Ventura which is being equipped with a new heating and hot water system, SailNorthEast sponsor and contributor Cap'n Pat Harris is introducing the motor vessel Jubilee which will offer dinner cruises of the harbor.

Celestial       Bateaux New York is also set to offer dinner cruises aboard their new glass domed Celestial. Additional details weren't available at 'press time' but may have been added below by the time you read this.

      All-in-all it looks like an exciting season shaping up for all of us here at SailNorthEast.

      See you on the water!
