Weekend on the Water

On Friday, July 6th, at 9:00 p.m., in historic Coney Island, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will illuminate the historic, but now dormant, Parachute Jump. A fireworks show will follow the ceremonies. The Parachute Jump will be illuminated from dusk until midnight through October. The event takes place on the Boardwalk and West 15th St.

For those looking for more adult-oriented entertainment, you can stay at Coney Island for their weekly Burlesque at the Beach which takes place at 10:00 p.m. This weeks show is called "Starshine Burlesque."

On Saturday, July 7th, Miramar Yacht Club will host, weather permitting, a make-up of the previously washed-out Sherman Leonard Regatta. The sailing will consist of both PHRF handicap racing and one-design racing for the fleet of Pearson Ensign sailboats. MYC members are encouraged to race, non MYC boats are also welcome. Skippers meeting is at 11:00 a.m. followed by the starting gun at 1:00 For further information or to register, contact Miramar Yacht Club.

Later that evening, Coney Island , as part of its Saturday Night Film Series, is presenting Scorsese's Taxi Driver, starring Robert DeNiro. The movie takes place at the Coney Island Museum 1208 Surf Ave. between Stillwell Ave. and West 12th Street. Tickets are $5.00. Free Popcorn! Shows start at 8:30pm, doors open 8pm.

I dont know if have noticed, but the link to the MYC does not work. Oh, buy the way, why did you not respond to my questions about keeping a boat in Sheepshead bay? I was interested in finding out more about the area as I am moving back to Brooklyn after this season.

I've asked the MYC Webmaster about the issue with it not working. If you use Firefox (like I do), it won't work. If you use anything else, it should work. It has something to do with the way the thing is scripted.

Sorry I didn't reply to your earlier post, what was your specific question about keeping your boat in Sheepshead Bay? The two clubs I'd recommend are Miramar (particularly if you sai), or Sheepshead Bay YC. There is also the Gateway Marina in Brooklyn (opposite Floyd Bennet Field). I'd happily arrange for you to come visit MYC if you wish. Let me know.
