Labor Day Weekend Huntington NY- Harbor Lighthouse Concert Series--Cruise Captains Kathy & Don Pantino S/V Blue Angel.

You have two options for departure Friday with Mike or early Saturday with Kathy and Don. There will be opportunity for rafting up, anchoring, moorings lots of music and fun for a good cause! Blue Angel is considering a sleepover in Mount Sinai and early departure before sunrise on Saturday morning to catch the tide and enjoy a little nighttime sailing with a sunrise finish! We plan to anchor the first night most likely in Lloyd Harbor but there are plenty safe anchorages in the area as well as Marinas and Seymour’s if you prefer a mooring!

THE FIRST LABOR DAY MUSIC CRUISE to Huntington Harbor, Huntington Lighthouse Concert Series. Mike Sawka will be co-captaining this cruise with Don & Kathy Pantino. Full Circle will be leaving Friday, Sept 1, around noon with the incoming tide. We will pick out a good anchoring location for Saturdays raft up. Anyone interested is welcome to join Full circle on Friday call or email Mike Sawka.

The plan is to anchor and/or raft up in Lloyd Harbor Friday night and raft up on Saturday for the concert. Make sure to bring your tender; we may need to move between more than one raft-up. The plan is to stay on anchor Saturday night. For the balance of this cruise there is quite a bit of flexibility with several options depending on weather and personal preference. Staying anchored out and rafted up or visiting nearby Northport or Oyster Bay both with many restaurants and sights to see. At this point Blue Angel is planning on Northport if they can get a mooring for Sunday night. Seymour’s has a new policy only taking reservations starting two weeks before the reservation date. If we have a commitment from a large group, they may make an exception as they did for the Northport cruise.

For the 11th year, the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society presents the Lighthouse Music Fest. This event held each Labor Day weekend is the ONLY Music Festival in the WORLD held on top of a working lighthouse in the middle of the water.
