ye can look back in the meowers' archive here, here (an' here, an' here--three parts!), an' here to get an idea of how we rolls . . . er, sails on such adventures. many fine kitties has joined the crew o'the cat o'nine tails, an' many more has sailed their own sleek vessels o'er the boundin' main in search o' treasure an' treats. we be a flotilla that commands respect an' temptayshuns at efurry port o'call!!

indeed, ye need no seafarin' experience to sail wif us--our doughty crew will lick ye into shape in a trice. if ye sails yer own vessel, ye need only rondyvoo wif us on the appointed day. if ye should answer a sirene call an' sail off t'seek yer own way, just remember t'be kind enuff to share yer ship's log wif us on yer bloggie!!

bring yer water-wings, yer mighty four-masters, yer kayaks, yer sloops, yer dinghies, an' yer pontoon boats on sunday, 19th september 2010 for the festivities. we invites ye all--cats, woofies, birds, buns, an' all such non-bean types--to sail wif us an' join the fleet for fortune, fame, an' fabulous adventures!!
