Moorings at the Huntington Yacht Club


eric freedman
 

Hi All,
I was away last week and heard that someone tried to get a mooring at The
Huntington yacht club.
I do not know if they were OCC, Tartan Group members, Amel group members, or
just cruising acquaintances.
They were of the impression that moorings and slips were free at they knew
me. Please make a note that the moorings at the Huntington Yacht Club are
$40 per night and a slip is $3- a foot per night.
Fair winds,
Eric Freedman
Port officer Huntington Long Island New York.

REGALIA IN THE UNITED STATES (5/2006)
After working with a website designer, OCC regalia will be easier
to purchase on-line. Located at www.IM-Embroidery.com, the new
"shopping cart" makes it possible to select items and pay by
credit card or cash using PayPal. Orders are sent directly to
Gary and Greta, are processed within 48 hours or less, and,
depending on the item and personalization, are shipped within 24
hours of order completion.

Persons not using credit card or PayPal can still place an order
on-line; however, payment in the form of a check or a money order
should be mailed to IM Embroidery, P.O. Box 3214, Norfolk,
Virginia 23514 at the time of the order. Shipments are not made
until payment is received.

Gary and Greta offer a wide range of regalia items, including the
much sought after burgee. These durable nylon burgees are
reinforced at the tip of the fly making them less susceptible to
wind damage. They currently offer 18 and 24 inch burgees, an 18
inch house flag and the Port Officer flag. They also can
customize clothing orders well beyond the items pictured on the
website.

THE OCC WEB SITE HAS BEEN UPGRADED- CREATE YOUR OWN ACCOUNT IF
YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO (USER NAME & PASSWORD) TO UPDATE
YOUR DETAILS ON LINE. (5/2006)

Congratulations to the 222 Members (at the time of writing this)
who have succeeded in creating their own account on The OCC Web
Site, www.oceancruisingclub.org . If you have not yet done so,
please have a go at this so that you may update your own contact
details, yacht, experience and sailing plans on the web. Soon,
you will be able to pay your subscription by secure payment on
line. Later this year we will provide a page on the web for every
member to publish extracts from their log. BUT TO DO ALL THIS YOU
NEED YOUR OWN USER NAME AND PASSWORD.

TO CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT
Please open www.oceancruisingclub.org. and click on 'No Account
Yet, Create One' at the very bottom left hand side of the Home
Page, under Login Form. Select a User Name (no spaces permitted
in this) and enter your e-mail address. If you can not find "No
Account Yet .", Log out of the Web Site (your computer has
probably logged you in automatically as flying and fish) and try
again. You must use an e-mail address already known to the OCC
and which is able to receive an activation message from the OCC.
Choose a Password, and as a security check, enter the name of the
yacht in which you qualified for the OCC. You will then receive
an automatic e-mail to which you must respond to activate your
account.

The message will contain a web address such as
http://www.oceancruisingclub.org/index.php?option=com_registration&;task=acti
vate&activation=XXXXXXX.
Either click on this or copy it and paste it into the web address
window and press <return>. This will activate your account.

TO UPDATE YOUR DETAILS ON THE OCC DATABASE
You can then log in with your own user name and password. Click
on "My Details" to see, and update if necessary, your record on
the Club database. Please use this opportunity to complete and
amend the details on the "My Details Form" to bring your Club
Record up to date, including your "sailing experience" and "plans
aboard" for 2006.

OLD LOG IN PROCESS STILL AVAILABLE FOR "READ ONLY" ACCESS
For a short transitional period you may still log in using
username <flying>, password <fish>, or username <Ocean2>,
password <Blackjack> to allow members who have not set up their
own account to read information but not to change personal
records or make payments. Please do not change the "My Details"
username or password for <flying> or <Ocean2> as you may deny
access to other members! Soon, you will not be able to get in to
the OCC Web site at all unless you use your own username and
password.

HELP!
If you are not sure what e-mail address the Club holds for you,
see "Members Details" on the Web Site logging in as username
<flying> password < fish> which will still give read only access
to the e-mail addresses known to the OCC.

If you have problems setting up your account, please e-mail the
secretary secretary@oceancruisingclub.org telling him your
preferred username and a password. He will set up your account
and respond by e-mail when he has done so. You may change
username and password when by clicking on "My Details" when you
next log in.

S/v OCEAN FLIGHT FOR SALE
(6/2006)

BUILT OF STEEL, THIS IS AN OCEAN GOING VESSEL OF STYLE AND
CHARACTER, PRESENTED WITH AN EXTENSIVE INVENTORY AND IN EXCELLENT
CONDITION, READY FOR ANY OCEAN PASSAGE.

This design was commissioned by a circum-navigator passing
through Cape Town, to be his boat for the next time round. She
was required to be a go anywhere yacht of modern concept, with
the pace to complete long offshore passages in a reasonable time.
Radius chine hull shape gives good looks, hydrodynamic efficiency
and enhanced resale value.
Ocean Flight was originally built for the owner of her building
yard; the detailing and finish are extraordinary. She is
beautifully built of the highest quality materials, with no
expense spared, throughout her build, refit or maintenance
schedule.
Her second (present) owner carried out extensive remodeling of
the interior and upgrades to systems, sails and instrumentation
in 1998 prior to leaving on an Atlantic circuit. She is
completely self-sufficient from Aries wind vane, solar panels to
a water maker.
Ocean Flight returned to Cape Town in mid 2005; at which time she
benefited from new standing rigging and a complete re-spray. Once
again she is in excellent condition and ready to hit the high
seas again.

Price: ZAR2 000 000.00

Full specifications and a full inventory are readily available
