As with many of our boating/yachting friends, you have much to share!

If you are a boat/yacht owner and are interested in meeting with other boat/yacht owners (creating a club), please send me a private msg with your boat/yacht manufacturer/yr, boat/yacht name, dock/mooring location, & contact info.

If you were a boat/yacht owner and are interested in sharing info with an active group of boat/yacht owners, please send me a private msg with your past boat info.

We (our small group) would like to gather this info to see if there is 'enough' interest to get this potential group going.

The closest I came to being a yachter [is that a word?] was going fishing with a friend on his Grady White at Barnegat Light on the Jersey shore. I would split the gas, food, beer, driving and help wipe the boat down when we returned.

I was a good helper and good company. I'd like to do that again, if that's in the cards.

We have 3 couples from The Villages already with boats at Yacht Harbor Marina (Hammock Beach Resort). It is the best kept secret on the FL East Coast! The Harbormaster is very supportive of us starting a Yacht Club with a 'base of operation' at the Hammock Beach Resort's Yacht Harbor Marina.

If enough 'interest' we can also have monthly meetings in The Villages (share info, arrange cruises, etc).

This is the initial contact to see where this may lead!
Count us in! We sold our Carver unfortunately but willing to go ad crew! Love boating!

The most useful tools any cruising couple can get are pair of voice activated headsets for communication when dock,locking or anchoring.

Also, very important, the Admiral should be handling the boat & the captain should be handling lines, anchors & fenders--he should have the strength needed for these procedures

The Admiral should know as much about boat handling,as the skipper.

This world is sometime amazingly smal. Margeez we too sailed on the Ohio River near Markland Dam in the 70s, Brookville lake and moved to lake Erie in the 90s. Eventually we got larger boats and retired to cruise our Catalina 380 from The North Channel to the Bahamas. From 2000 unti 2005. We sold our cruiser and did four years of land travel before buying in TV. Got the desire again last year to do some sailing but on a very small scale. We have a Sun Cat (New England Cat Boat) that we trail all over Florida. But it's just a two night cruiser. Not suitable for offshore work. Good Luck on you club keep us posted. Tom and Barb Lincoln

We are looking for you!!! Two night cruiser is fine! It's a boat...you can overnight on it....Most of the cruises will probably be 'weekenders' along the ICW (for those of us on the East Coast)... If you are interested, send me info via a private msg!
