2022 ICOYC Cruise of the Chesapeake Bay

Postponement of the 2022 ICOYC Cruise of the Chesapeake Bay

A message from the Co-Chairs of the ICOYC:

Regretfully, the decision has been made to postpone the ICOYC Cruise scheduled for this Fall. We have had very low registrations. In correspondence with various ICOYC members outside of the United States, there is general concern about making financial arrangements when it is unclear whether the pandemic could impact the cruise. In addition, if a surge were to occur, it is possible that borders could be closed and members may not be able to leave a particular country or even return if they are traveling. There was also a conflict with the date of a large club event. Any registrants will have their registration fees refunded.

The planning will not have been wasted, however. We are hoping to repeat the cruise in its entirety at a future date.

We are putting together a survey which will be sent to ICOYC members asking about the preference for which season of the year and any specific dates to avoid. In this way, we can ensure that we get the most participation in the cruise.

Thanks and be on the lookout for the survey.
