TONE 2018 Winter Dinner: Good Day & Good Night 

The 2018 TONE Winter Dinner was the usual wonderful winter opportunity for TONE "regulars" and a bunch of new people to meet, learn, and share a meal together.

Our first event was a morning seminar session on
"Weather for the Cruising Sailor" led by Dr. Frank Bohlens (Professor Emeritus of Oceanography, University of Connecticut). Frank received multiple kudos for his succinct and really useful discussion of how weather works (especially coastal weather) and then how to get the most out of the weather forecasting products we can all get now through our computers and smart phones. A summary of Frank's comments and tools are included in the newly published Winter/Spring TONE Nor'easter available here on the site.

TONE wants to say a special thanks to Springline Yacht Sales (our Southern New England Tartan dealer) who very graciously donated $250.00 to cover the coast of Dr. Bohlen's seminar.  

The evening dinner started with a long cocktail hour (5:00 - 7:00 P.M.) which gave everyone plenty of time to catch up with fellow TONE members.  The buffet dinner itself followed and a near record 58 Tartan faithful sat down to enjoy both the food and each other's company.  The dinner was followed by brief remarks from Mike Tamulaites, Director, Sales & Marketing for Tartan and Dick Waterhouse of Springline Yacht Sales. They brought us up to date on Tartan doings both at the factory and locally.

It was a great time for all who attended and we announced that TONE would be coordinating another of our biennial Maine Cruise trip this summer.  Watch this site and your member emails for announcements and updates for the trip.  If you have ever considered making a trip to Maine, this is the way to do it!

 TONE's Mission: To provide forums for all Tartan owners to exchange information, enjoy boating and social events together,
 and create a sense of fellowship in order to enhance our ownership experiences.
