Cat Boat Association 50th Anniversary Rendezvous


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Catboat Association at Mystic Seaport, catboat enthusiasts will converge on the museum's waterfront for three days this July. The event will be an opportunity to see some of the finest catboats afloat and to meet catboat sailors from around the country. The weekend will culminate in a parade down the Mystic River on the final day.
