Rubber Duck Rescue — Saturday

March 25, 2013 in Cruising Blog, From Vice Commodore, Uncategorized by davec

So far wind, rain and temperature forecasts are looking good for Saturdays Rescue mission. RSVP your boat and gather your crew. Our commodore says the game is upgraded this year….. power boaters this is a man over board drill to practice for sailing boats. The idea is to get back to a lost sailor by steering correctly and not touching sails, but you are welcome and invited to join the fun by crewing and snagging or boating and refereeing …..

Results of the Nippy Night Raftup

February 28, 2011 in Cruising Blog by mike

WOW!  What a blast.  We had 5 boats stay over night just north of the power plant.   The food was great as well as the company of friends.  Everyone seemed to have a good time and I believe everyone consumed enough adult beverages (including the newly bottled Howard and Mike wine) to be fully enjoy the evening!  Our newest power boat couple (Yvonne and Kelly) arrived in style with their new boat.  The weather was perfect, no A/C or heater was needed… Well, Nancy might have wanted a little bit of heat…

Sunday morning came to early; however, Howard cooked a wonderful breakfast.  Breakfast ended with a typical boat “TODO” list…It started with 1 item and ended with and entire plate full….  You had to be there to get the complete significance of the “plate full.”

You won’t want to miss the next raftup !

Getting Started 2011

January 30, 2011 in Cruising Blog by admin

Sailing Away Mastered

This is the time of year when the leaves are gone, the sun is too and Canada sends us “just a taste” to remind us of why we love Texas!!

We Commodore’s at Lavon Yacht Club also use this time by the fire to dream and plan the up coming years activities for our band of cohorts that share a love for the lake life.
As I write this I am still basking in the afterglow of two days of 70 degree sailing on Lake Lavon in January! I call these little respites from winter in Texas our “winter peaches” I am pumped from the infusion of vitamin D and I have boating on my mind!!
The Dallas Fiberglass on Parade Show (aka, Boat Show) is set to bust out in a few days indicating we are at the half way point of the winter break. So all those little fixer ups for spring projects need to be moved to the front burner.
Cruising is kicking off with a Nippy Night Raft Up scheduled for Saturday February 26th after the Dock cleanup. This is always a blast and I think we just might have some live music complements of portions of the Roughnecks Band!
As the spring starts springing and Larry’s races get going we will bust out the little yellow duckys throw them in the lake, find and rescue them in a classic man over board drill called “The Duck Hunt” on March 26th. From then on it’s all lake life I can get for the rest of the season, Raft Ups as often as we can fit them in. We have two Movie nights planned and a THREE NIGHT ALL EXPENCE PAID CRUISE (by you) to the world famous Ticky Creek Resort and Spa!! BYO,BFB.(boat,food,beverages)
Check the calendar often it will be updated to keep you informed of all the action as it can be rather fluid! (lake pun)
As I said I am pumped with what is planned for 2011 and hope you are too.
