Our first cruise of the 2018 season will be to the Mathews Yacht Club, where we are invited to join them for their opening flag-raising ceremonies. This has always been a well-attended event, where everyone reconnects to start the season. The event will feature dinner and dancing after the opening ceremonies, and the men are requested to wear a coat and tie. Mathews Yacht Club is just a short sail from Fishing Bay, and slips are available with the first night free. Stutts Creek also offers a good anchorage. Sunday brunch at the club can be enjoyed prior to returning home. Plan to join on Friday night at Fannies House for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and a good sail on Saturday and Sunday. Land cruising for the social activities is also an option if your boat isn’t quite ready! Please register by March 31 and contact John Koedel Jr. at email@example.com or call (804) 776-6168 with any questions.
