The South access road to the boat club is under construction until mid September. Bill Franz is working on providing water/sewer to the club house but as of now there is no service. Edgewater Arms Homeowners association was kind enough to enter into a walking agreement for members/west wallers to walk over the pipe bridge at the end of Edgewater arms. Under the agreement there is NO PARKING/NO DRIVING on their property. Because of these issues, we decided to try something different.

A good ole Post Race Raft up.


A few of our skippers will be dragging kayaks around the course, so the kids have something to float on post race. Bring your floating toys, paddle boards, and fenders.

Look for Fixation and raft up to share some on-the-water fun after the race.

Power boater’s Capt Ron and Mark Jordan will join us for the race to provide some cover. Keep a keen eye for floating TYPE IV cushions for some post race prizes.

Remember, lots of flying water so hide those electronics. Be first to win the Commodore’s Cup


Don’t be last or you will win the Laundry Award. Guess whats under the seat cover 🙂


See you Saturday!

Paul, Mary, and Karen.
