Moon Light Sailing (2013 Schedule)
Sail from Sunset to Midnight
Bring your food to grill!
Next Moonlight Sail: Sun June 23, 2013
Every month, right around the days of the full moon, the Sailing Pavillion remains open until midnight. MITNA members with a Provisional rating* can take out a Lynx Catboat with up to five of their best friends, or strangers, for an unique experience under the moon. Please see the list below for the moon light sail dates this year.
The Catboats's are outfitted with the necessary lights to go out after dark by the Pavillion staff (be sure your boat's lights are on! Ask for help if they are not). Then you're on your own sailing to the light of the moon.
Plus, starting at sunset the grill is turned on (bring your own food and drinks) for members and their guests to have dinner on the dock.
Because moon light sails tend to be extremely popular, we may ask that each party limit their outings to approximately 30 minutes to an hour. That way many people can go out on the one night per month event. And, since not all MITNA members have a Provisional rating, we appreciate when those members with the rating can take out a few people they may not know.

Note: The moon light sail dates are decided upon by the Pavilion staff to be around the full moon but also to account with MIT students' calendars and special events. Therefore, be sure to follow this calendar, rather than the exact dates of the full moon.
Note: In case of bad weather the Pavilion might have to close early; unfortunately moon light sails cannot be rescheduled. Therefore, please check the weather ahead of time.
