Water Lovers’ Mixer at Oakcliff Sailing

Water Lovers’ Mixer at Oakcliff Sailing

April 26th!

Marine organizations around Oyster Bay and Cold Spring Harbor are sponsoring a Water Lovers’ Mixer at Oakcliff Sailing at 4 South St. in Oyster Bay on Friday, April 26th, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The mixer will be a chance for people who own boats or have access to the water to connect with those who don’t but want to. Sailboat racers and cruisers, powerboaters, kayakers, rowers, kiters, paddleboarders, conservationists and anyone else looking to connect with other like-minded people are invited.

“This event will provide an opportunity for people who love the water but can’t always get out on it to appreciate the bays and help protect them,” Friends of the Bay President Bill Bleyer said. “It is also a great opportunity for the sponsoring organizations to let people know what they offer, from memberships to lessons or just getting more people on the water to race, cruise, or just fish and hang out.”

The event is free with refreshments provided by sponsors Friends of the Bay, Seawanhaka, Oyster Bay Community Rowing, Cold Spring Harbor Beach Club, Sagamore Yacht Club, The Waterfront Center, Oakcliff, Regatta Craft Mixers and Oyster Bay Brewing Company.

“Oakcliff is the world’s premiere training and coaching center for sailing,” said Dawn Riley, Oakcliff’s Executive Director. “In 2010 it was created and designed to fit in-between the established water-based organizations in historically, eclectic Oyster Bay. We are happy that just over a decade later we are able to host this mixer to connect and highlight all of these organizations.”
