#Summer #event #networking #sailing #adventure #Liberte #schooner


The Providence Section is hosting an afternoon of sailing on July 13, 2024, from 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm aboard the three-masted schooner Liberté out of Falmouth Harbor. You'll sail in the general area of Nantucket and Vineyard Sounds. Advance non-refundable reservations are required. Prices:  Student Member and one guest:  $20 each; All other members and one guest: $35 each;  Additional guests:  $40 each; Young guests, age 7-18: $20 each; Children: age 6 and younger: no cost. These prices are the same as the last time this event was held in 2023.


There is very limited parking on site. Those arriving by hired transportation will receive beverage coupons. If driving, please utilize your smallest vehicle or please carpool. There is a parking attendant who will receive you and assist with parking.


The Liberté is a magnificent three-masted schooner which plies the beautiful waters of Cape Cod and the Chesapeake Bay. During the summer it ties up at the Clam Shack, just inside the mouth of the harbor in Falmouth, MA.  It is 74 feet long with a spacious deck and plentiful on-deck seating including room for wheelchairs.


Soft drinks, beer, wine and mixed drinks are available on board at the cash bar. Attendees may wish to bring along their own snacks, light food or water. We have a liquor license which prohibits our guests from bringing their own alcohol. We keep our prices reasonable.


Keep in mind that it is often cooler on the water than on land, particularly on windy days. You might want to bring along a sweater or jacket. Comfortable shoes are definitely encouraged, high heels are not. Sunblock is also recommended.


ATTENTION:  Cape Cod is a tourist destination and access via either the Bourne or Sagamore bridge is expected to be slow.  Allow ample time for your drive and arrive at the dock not later than 1:00 pm. If you are running late for the departure time, please call the Liberte office at 508-524-9121 to inform us.


In case of bad weather and the captain decides that the passengers will be in danger or discomfort, we will cancel the trip. All IEEE reservation fees will be refunded.


If you have any questions please contact the host.
