Sail to Cocoa Village and join us for the annual “Mardi Gras” Cruise. Even though Cocoa Village is foregoing a parade this year, ECSA is going to continue the Mardi Gras tradition.
Chef Johnny will be treating us to BBQ similar to last July 4th. We'll have the Cocoa Village Marina (CVM) clubhouse reserved for ECSA starting at 3:00 p.m., where we can socialize until dinner is ready, about 5:00 pm. The main entree will be BBQ chicken, with hamburgers and hot dogs as an alternative. Attendees are asked to bring their favorite drinks and side dishes to share. There will be a $5.00 per person charge to offset some of the meal costs.
If you want to get a slip at Cocoa Village Marina, the phone number is 321-632-5445. The number of slips is limited in both the East and West basins so reserve as soon as possible. Remember to tell them that you are with ECSA and ask for the club rate of $1.50/ft/night. If you anchor out, someone will meet you at the dinghy dock in the park at 4 p.m. to walk up to the CVM clubhouse.
Arrive by boat or donkey cart (car) and enjoy the parade, which begins at 11 a.m. in downtown Melbourne, with hourly festivities until after dark.
Anchor off Front Street Park or call Melbourne Harbor Marina for reservations and dockage (321-725-9054). Melbourne Yacht Club will allow ECSA to use their dinghy docks, but DO NOT use the “T” dock. Call Eileen (321-609-1066) or Simon (321-576-4791) for the gate code.
