Water Lovers’ Mixer at Oakcliff Sailing

Water Lovers’ Mixer at Oakcliff Sailing

April 28th!

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 April 28 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 Corinthian Yacht Club, Oyster Bay Community Rowing, Cold Spring Harbor Beach Club, Sagamore Yacht Club, Oakcliff Sailing and Regatta Craft Mixers.

“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.”

OBCR Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity

Recently, our varsity rowers worked with Habitat for Humanity to construct an affordable housing unit in Shirley. There was much to do, much to learn, and it was a worthwhile experience once that we will certainly be repeating.

Row, Row, Row Her Boat
