The power fleet is a small but important part of our club. Our guiding principal is inclusivity to ensure that all members of our club - sailors, racers, and paddlers, as well as power boaters - have a chance to get to know each other and play together.
To that end, we host events and activities throughout the year that we hope are of interest to all boaters. We also host an email list that any club member can join, and we meet every two months to plan our activities. Please join us!
Events planned for 2017:
