Rendezvous Write-ups and Photos
Rendezvous which were held prior to 1998, are not recorded on the Alberg 37 Web
site except in the archived newsletters. The first Alberg 37 Rendezvous was held over the Labor day weekend in
September, 1993 in Kinsale, VA, and have been held annually since the first event.
ALBERG-37 FALL RENDEZVOUS time again! Plan to include this event in your fall
cruising plans (especially you
owners). This is a "come as you are" event, no planned activities
except relaxing and visiting with other A-37 folks. Plan on pot luck
get-togethers as this is a most INFORMAL rendezvous (steamed crabs and oysters
on Saturday PM). We have slips for 4 A-37s, with room for more rafted
alongside. Hampton Hall Creek is quite protected and has plenty of room for
anchoring if desired. You will miss out on a good time if you don't attend.
Attached are directions both by water or by land.
Kinsale is about 35 NM (by water) south of Solomons,
10 NM from the
and about 65 miles (by road) south of
BY WATER: From Point Lookout MD (Chart #12233 Potomac River/Chesapeake Bay)
proceed west about 10 miles to the Yeocomico River Entrance light Fl R4s
18 ft 4M “2” (38-02.44N 076-30.04W). From the Yeocomico River
Entrance light proceed (Chart #12285 Potomac River Yeocomico River Inset 4)
westward to Fl G 6sec "3" (line up on the large white house with red
roof on Horn Point), then to "2". Note the shoal area to the
Southeast of "2". Give "2" a slightly wide berth to the
Southeast, and you will have no problem. Continue in the
red daymarkers (#4 and #6) and past the Port
Kinsale Marina to starboard. Continue to where the
(at Kinsale) and you must either turn to the port or starboard. Turn to port
(starboard takes you to the grain elevator and a marina) and follow the
channel into the Hampton Hall Branch. You will see it open up into a small bay,
just continue around the bay until you see a point (WITH FLAGPOLE) on your
starboard. Give this point a wide berth, and continue to the second boat dock
after passing the point where you will see SHEARWATER tied up there anxiously
awaiting all her sisters (we'll have the A-37 sign and large pennant
displayed)! (Check chartlet on Website for an
overall view of the area.)
IF YOU COME BY CAR: From Fredericksburg, VA,
proceed on Rt. 3 to Montross, VA. Proceed
south on Rt. 3 out of
miles south of Montross, VA you will see Rt. 202,
make a left on Rt. 202 and proceed on Rt. 202 through Hague, VA.
About 4 miles from Hague, you will see Rt. 203 (at BP gas station and a
sign to Kinsale), make a left on Rt.203 for about 1.2 miles and you will be
coming into Kinsale. As you approach Kinsale, you will be coming down a small
hill, just at the bottom of the hill you will see a sign saying 'Hampton Hall
Estates' and also a street sign “
Make a right turn on
continue for about 1.2 miles until
you will also see a red "12" "daymarker"
marking our driveway. Just drive on in and come on down to the water. That's
where we will be. If anyone wishes to stay overnight (those who come by boat,
we assume you will anchor out or raft alongside overnight), there is an
motel in Montross, and several Bed and Breakfasts
in the area, (or pitch a tent in our back yard).
