Let the Good Times Roll!
 

 
 
     
     
 
As Commodore Mike mentioned last month, the theme for this year's Regatta is Mardi Gras!  While you may not see your Officers dressed up quite as spectacularly as above, you know the spirit is there.

So even though it's still a couple of months until the Regatta, we're giving you plenty of time to put together costumes as fancy as these (we're talking to you, Rutherfords).  The competition will undoubtedly be fierce, as always, and possibly deadly for anyone allergic to bird feathers.

Commodore's Report: by Mike Clark

BOATS
Ol Seafarers got a Boston Whaler (or whatever)
They bought in Key Biscayne (or wherever)
They swear since the day they got her
They’ve been nothing but a pain
When the sun’s at their back
And the winds in their face
It’s just them and the wheel
They wouldn’t take a million for the                               
Way it makes them feel
Boats
Vessels of Freedom
Harbors of Healing
Boats.

Seafarers are returning home, starting this month, to renew their feelings of vessels of freedom and harbors of healing as Kenny Chesney put it in the above song lyrics.  The Commodore is returning along with many others who took the time of heat and humidity to go visit and travel North and West.  Welcome back to our piece of PARADISE!!

Our annual trip to South Seas will be led by Art Armstrong September 29-October 2.  Always a premier trip for the Seafarers with great participation and a tremendous amount of good times.

As more of us return, there will be more activity to follow.  Please keep an eye on the activity calendar for upcoming events.  And as always, we have our twice monthly Happy Hour at St Andrews on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month.

Continue the fun and we will see you on the water AND on the land!

Mike

 Cruising News: by Joe Preece, Director

No cruises were held in August. Art Armstrong is leading an overnight cruise to South Seas on September 30 through October 2. Nineteen out of a possible twenty-five boats have signed up, so go online and join in the fun.
 
Two cruises are planned for October.  Gary Cameron will lead an overnight cruise to Palm Island on October 14th through the 16th, eight boats have already signed up. Jack Gardner is leading a lunch cruise to Capt’n Con’s on October 26th. This is also an easy drive for those choosing to not boat.  November is the Regatta and a lunch cruise to the Elks Lodge.

Social Events: by Bev Riggs,  Director

I hope that everyone enjoyed their month off and all are ready to get into the swing of things! In September, Elise Gowan is planning a karaoke night at Case Cay. Watch your email for details.

I'm still looking for a volunteer to head up the chili cook-off in October.  Message me if you are willing.....

Don't forget the socials at St Andrews.  See you there!

Cheers,

Bev
