Join the Society of Women Engineers sections in Richmond, Hampton Roads, and Baltimore-Washington on a boat tour to view the two pilot turbines operating off the coast of Virginia Beach in Dominion Energy's Central Virginia Offshore Wind project. We have chartered a boat through Rudee Tours for a 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. trip, with 9:30 a.m. arrival to begin boarding.
The boat is equipped with two viewing levels, two bathrooms, climate-controlled cabin, full bar, and snack bar. You can also bring your own food and alcohol-free drinks on board.
We're excited to announce that engineers from Dominion Energy will deliver a presentation about the project and answer questions during our trip. This trip is organized by your Virginia SWE sections and is not affiliated with or sponsored by Dominion Energy.
Colleagues, family members, and friends are all welcome to join the trip!
Please note these details about the price and capacity:
Tickets are $110 to share the cost of the charter. This includes gratuity to the crew as well as Eventbrite fees.
We need a minimum of 36 attendees to cover the cost of the trip. If we don't reach this threshold, we will need to cancel and fully refund all tickets. This decision will be made 2 weeks ahead of time.
The boat holds a maximum of 50 attendees. If we exceed our minimum threshold of 36, we will issue partial refunds to all attendees.
If you buy tickets but your plans change between now and April 19, please email SWE Richmond to arrange a refund. For cancellations after April 19, we cannot guarantee a refund unless we have sufficient attendees to still cover the charter cost.
