    • River Forest Marina, Belhaven
    Registration is closed

    We're heading to the historic River Forest Manor and Marina in Belhaven, which was beautifully restored in 2015, for our Dog Days Cruise. The anchorage off Belhaven is excellent, too, if you prefer to stay "on the hook."

    On the club's last visit to the River Forest Marina in 2018, we were given a private guided tour of the historic 1899 mansion, followed by our social on the house's broad veranda. We'll organize a  socially distanced affair on Saturday. Provision your boat for your own food and drink, and don't forget your mask!

    The marina provides courtesy golf carts for excursions to downtown Belhaven about a mile away. Spoon River Restaurant is open, reservations recommended, and many of the shops in the downtown area are open as well.

    • Grace Harbor, River Dunes
    Register

    NOTE: Slip space is limited at River Dunes this year to 10 slips, and we've hit that limit.  We will keep a standby list if slips open up, or any current registrants cancel. Members have anchored in Board Creek in the past and come into the marina to participate as well.

    Hot August storms often disrupt our efforts to cruise to distant destinations, making a nearby marina usually a good choice 
    for the annual Lazy Days Cruise.  With that in mind, this year we'll go back to the magnificent River Dunes Marina at Grace Harbor off Broad Creek. just 11nm from Oriental. We'll enjoy the pool, have a Saturday social and, for those interested, have dinner in groups at the fabulous Harbor Club.

    Stay tuned for more information and registration.

    • Ocracoke
    Register

    Ocracoke Island was devastated by Hurricane Dorian last year and they are coping with Covid-19, but Ocracokers are resilient and they are ready to welcome the NSA back for Labor Day weekend 2020. Many of the club's favorite restaurants and businesses are open. 

    The Anchorage Inn Marina and the National Park Service docks are sure to fill up for the weekend. We will be granted a limited number of reserved slips at the Anchorage Inn Marina. Registration will open on the NSA website precisely at 6 pm on Tuesday, July 7. Slips will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the time stamp on your registration. Put the registration start date and time in your calendar and don't delay as the slips go quickly. Slips at the government docks, which cannot be reserved, and space in the anchorage are first-come, first served.

    Since some members will arrive Friday or earlier and some may leave on Sunday, we are planning for small-group gatherings on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. More to come on that, but plan to provision to bring your own food and drink, and a mask, to any gatherings.

    • Oriental, NC

    The Oriental Boat Show this year is in the Oriental Harbor Marina. Make sure you stop by the NSA tent. We also need NSA members to work shifts in the tent to greet potential members and answer questions. Please contact Donna Crothers, Vice Commodore of Membership if you'd like to help.

    Boat Show Forum

    More information about the boat show is available at www.orientalboatshow.com/

    Oriental’s annual In-water Boat Show has grown exponentially since its beginnings in 2009. The 2017 show drew over 100 exhibitors from as far away Hampton, Virginia, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bryson City, NC. In addition to nautical goods and services, dealers and brokers brought in boats on land and in the slips at Oriental Harbor Marina, many of which were available for in-water sea trials. For more info, see the Oriental Boat Show website.

    • West Bay Anchorage
    Register

    We had a fabulous weekend last year at West Bay for our Fall Cruise and we're going to try it again. An old NSA haunt, West Bay can be iffy for anchoring if the wind is not right. The beach on the southern shore of Pamlico Sound is very nice and the anchorage beautiful, unless the wind is out of the north, which makes it too rough. So, we'll hope for a S or SW wind and moderate temps.  We plan to have a social on the beach sometime Saturday (bring a dish). If you don't have a working dinghy, there is always somebody that can give ou a ride.

    We normally anchor near 35°01.869'N  076°20.082'W.  That is on the outside of West Bay.  We typically anchor outside because of easier access to the beach.  There is no beach on the inside of West Bay.

    Stay tuned for more information.

    • New Bern
    Register

    Halloween falls on Saturday this year and our destination is New Bern, which has one of the best Ghost Walks in the area, presented by the New Bern Historical Society.  Our tentative destination is the Galley Stores & Marina located on the Neuse River at the foot of Pollack Street. The Galley Stores & Marina has been the site of previous NSA Halloween cruises. The marina provisioning store offers gourmet foods and specialty wines and craft beers, and overlooking the marina is the fabulous Persimmons Restaurant.

    We'll have a social on the marina lawn on Saturday, after which members can meet up for dinner and/or the Ghost Walk.

    Stay tuned for more details.
