About The Event


We will be Cruising to the Finger Lakes on April 12-15, 2024.  This Cruise was originally scheduled for May, but has shifted to April because Watkins Glen International Motor Speedway has added a private event and canceled the “Drive the Glen” sessions for that weekend.

This Cruise is from Friday to Monday morning.  If you can't leave on Friday due to work, leave after work, it's just a 4 hour drive to Hammondsport, NY to join us that evening.  You will miss the “Drive the Glen” and the Friday night dinner. However, you could fit your “Drive the Glen” session in at noon on Saturday. If you have to be at work Monday morning, head home on Sunday evening before or after our dinner. Adjust your room booking accordingly.
