Those of you who have been around Stingray Point Marina for a while know that we can throw one heck of a party. Well, Saturday, April 23th is the beginning of Opening Weekend for the marina and Stingray Harbour Yacht Club! On Saturday, April 23th from 2:00 – 5:00pm we will be having our famous annual Open House Party in the Stingray Point Lighthouse! Free food and adult beverages (and soft drinks). There will be plenty of food and drink for all so plan on being here to say hello to old and new marina friends!
We are planning on de-winterizing the marina by the weekend of April 5th if Mother Nature cooperates! I know we all are looking forward to washing our boats, filling our water tanks and using the restrooms closest to our slips!
We will be resurfacing the main entrance drive as soon as the weather breaks. I have asked for notice from our contractor, but we have no guarantee he will give it to me prior to arriving to do the work. If you arrive and see the work equipment, for those of you on A, B, and F Docks, please use the drive from the boat yard next door ( F Dock go in front of the lighthouse and around to your slip ). G, C, D, and E Docks, please use the far entrance to the marina. Also beware of your speed on the new drive. We are installing speed bumps!
Take a look around the marina. Notice anything new? We are always looking for ways we can improve on marina safety. There are now 16 new bright orange life rings installed through out the marina. Please take the time to locate the one nearest your slip just in case of an emergency.
Opening Day PARTY!!!
Now, everyone who knows me, knows I love a party!!!! Those of you who know me also know that I can throw one heck of a marina party. Well, April 26th is the beginning of Opening Weekend for the marina and Stingray Harbour Yacht Club! On Saturday, April 26th from 2:00 – 5:00pm we will be having our famous annual Open House Party in the Stingray Point Lighthouse! There will be plenty of food and drink for all so please write down the date and come and say hello to old and new marina friends! I can’t wait to see you all!!!
I would also like to let everyone know that the Schooner Virginian will be in Deltaville the weekend of April 26th. It will be docked at Fishing Bay Harbor Marina. Please visit our Facebook page for more information on tours and activities throughout the weekend.
Last of all, as the season approaches, I would like to thank everyone for respecting my privacy and “off duty time” while I am on my boat. All the marina phone calls that go directly to the office number ( 804- 776-7272 ) and the emails about marina issues have really allowed me some “me time”. Of course, if there is a true emergency, LET ME KNOW!!!
Not long now everyone! IT WILL BE A GREAT SEASON!!!!!
We had a beautiful day for the Opening Day Festivities. The open house at the Lighthouse on Saturday afternoon was packed with happy sailors back to start the season. Food, drink and friendships were enjoyed by all. After the open house party, the SHYC had their blessing of the fleet ceremony and the annual burning of the socks. The beginning of another great season of sailing and fun.
Come And Celebrate Opening Weekend With Us!!

On Saturday, April 28, Marina slip holders and Stingray Harbor Yacht Club members were treated to a wonderful party with great food on a cold cloudy afternoon. The party was held in the Stringray Point Marina Lighthouse. Many had never had the opportunity to visit the interior of our Lighthouse, an exact, full scale recreation of the 1858 original Stingray Point Lighthouse. The Marina will be turning over access to the Lighthouse interior to the Stingray Harbor Yacht Club and all Club members will be able to enjoy the new space to relax, watch a little TV and enjoy the views. Thanks to Lisa for creating a lovely party.
