We had our Annual Membership Meeting and welcome in the Club’s officers, Drumstick Regatta was fun and Nelly and the volunteer army once again put on a Wonderful – Sold Out- Thanksgiving Dinner.  Last week the Scows held a clinic and Ray held a Sunday Free Sail on the Clubs rental boats.  Thank you for those who captained the fleet.

Please note if you are looking to join us Saturday night ticket need to be purchased in advance.  This will sell out and we down to 15 dinners available as of today, event on Saturday the 14th. We’ll end out the year with the Commodores Cup and see you next year at the Annual Hang Over Regatta.
