Cruising Fleet Memorial Weekend Party

Speakeasy Crew
Memorial Weekend is when the Columbia Yacht Club Cruising Fleet gets together to see if our boats still float after a long cold winter. Usually, we sail a short distance across Lake Michigan to a friendly harbor, dine, sail, and assist each other fix broken bits on our boats. This year, the cruising part got rained out by a 5-inch deluge that silted in our designated harbor. Our backup plan was a very good one. We stayed at Columbia Yacht Club.

We were treated to a great dinner off the menu, special Bloody Marys, a spectacular potluck with lamb, and many wonderful conversations. Speakeasy got rigging trimmed and very good advice about the new NMEA 2000 network. She's ready to sail and comfortable to sleep in once again. Once the network is finished, we'll know where she's going too.
