Bon Voyage Dock Party and Sunset Sail – August 13

Join us to send off the newly admitted and returning Princeton undergrad and graduate students with an informal reception. Princeton alums, current students, incoming students, parents and families are all welcome to join.

This year, we are combining the send-off with one of the PCOC’s most popular events: a family-friendly open-house-style dock party, accompanying a boat tour of Newport Harbor captained by Roger Philips ’67.

WHEN: Sunday, August 13, 2017, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: 614 Lido Park Dr., Newport Beach
(Rhine Warf Pier public docks between the Cannery and the Bluewater Grill) – MAP
RSVP: Seth Grossman ’94

Food and refreshments will be provided.

Suggested donation of $10 per adult and $5 per child to help cover the costs.
There is no charge for newly admitted and current Princeton students and their families, and for children under the age of 12.

Parking information:
There is plenty of metered parking on the surrounding streets and behind the Bluewater Grill. (There is no charge for metered parking after 6:00 p.m.)

Dress is very informal and if you are going to sail, please wear non-marking, non-slip shoes. It’s also good idea to bring a windbreaker or light jacket. All ages are welcome, but children under 90 pounds wishing to sail will need to bring their own life vests.

To accommodate as many sailors as possible, our captain, Roger Philips ’67, will likely take several trips. If you’d like to go out first, please plan to arrive at 6:00 p.m. If you want to be sure to sail, please plan to arrive no later than 7:15 p.m. Priority will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis to those that have made a reservation.

Reservations are required for sailing and we would like to receive your RSVP if you plan to attend. Please e-mail Seth Grossman ’94 at as soon as possible.

This is going to be a great evening and we look forward to seeing you there.
