HTSC Cruise-in-Company 2023 Schedule of Events

Ahoy Cruisers! Time to save the dates and join members on our up coming HTSC Cruises.

Just a reminder club cruises are open to all members and non members too, so please invite your non-member friends to tag along and enjoy the camaraderie and good times we have at HTSC!

Please register in advance for all events on the club website so I have an idea how many will attend…..and I am open to adding additional events as the year progresses.

Looking forward to seeing you all afloat this year!

Rear Commodore and Fleet Captain John Barr

Man-O-War, Wednesday January 18, 2023. Our first cruise of the 2023 season is scheduled for Wednesday, January 18th to Man-O-War. The fleet should plan to leave Hope Town with the morning tide and anchor off the Low Spot.

  • Day boats can make the trip easily and wade ashore. The Pavilion has been rebuilt completely with BBQs and shelter with tables. It should be a beach day, plenty of time to socialize with Happy Hour at 5 PM sharp.
  • Around 6 pm the club will light the BBQs and provide hot dogs for those so inclined…or, bring whatever you would like to grill. In any event, please do bring a dish to share! Most will spend the night and then wander back to HT Thursday.

Great Guana Cay, Sunday, February 5, 2023   Guana Cay  be our second cruise starting on Sunday, February 5th. I expect the fleet to leave HT on the rising tide and anchor off Fischers Bay and dinghy to Grabber’s dock.

  • Funday will start up the hill at Nipper’s which has been completely rebuilt better than ever and as the afternoon wears on most will gravitate down the hill to Grabber’s for Sundowners, chow, and fun.
  • Like Nipper’s, Grabbers has been completely rebuilt both the restaurant and their long dock. FYI most of the moorings in Guana both in Settlement Harbour and Fischers Bay are no longer operational. Orchid Bay Marina is up and running without a restaurant and pool as of  September, but perhaps these features will be back by season.

Tahiti Beach, Saturday Noon, February 18, 2023 Our third scheduled cruise will be to our own Tahiti Beach, meeting at noon on Saturday, February 18th. It will be a beach day that is reachable by boat and golf cart. We had a great turn out last year and I expect the same this season weather permitting of course. 

Little Harbour, Friday, March 3, 2023 Our last scheduled cruise will take us south to Little Harbour starting with the tide on Friday March 3rd. Most will pick up a mooring inside and we can hangout together on the sand and enjoy Happy Hour and diner at Pete’s Pub. For those of you who may be boat less, members in past years have taken the ferry to Marsh and then rented a car to partake in the fun. 

Kate and I are looking forward to a great year cruising local waters with you. Please mark your calendars and make plans now.
