RYC FIXTURE CARD 2022
Annual River Cruise July 8th-15th
Each year usually beginning on the second Friday of July RYC holds an annual river cruise up the Saint John River. This week-long fun-filled event welcomes all members, of both power and sail. The cruise directors organize many fun activities such as music, bonfires, games for the kids, an auction and water sport activities. The itinerary is a flexible guide to daily adventures. Each morning cruisers host a morning call with skippers either from his boat or on channel 72 to discuss weather conditions and destinations of the day.
Popular river cruise destinations include Carters Point, Big Cove, Lawson's Passage, Grand Lake, and Jenkins Cove.
RYC Social Events
Although RYC is first and foremost a boating club, we plan several opportunities for members to get together both off-season and in-season.
The many events are open only to members and guests.
You will find these and other activities listed on our events page. Details of major events appear in our fixture card and in specific invitations sent to all members via email. You can register for an event directly from the invitation.
