First Night: April Fools!

  • This location is shown only to members

It may be April Fools' Day, but there's no fooling around with this venue. I need to gain final approval, but for April's first night gathering, I am hoping to invite you to the library of my ship! Columbia Yacht Club is a 7,000-ton (if you can even imagine that number) ferry permanently anchored at the foot of Randolph Street at Lake Shore Drive. It's a little out of the way, but well worth your effort to come aboard this magnificent vessel. It used to transport trains, cars and people across the Northumberland Strait between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. But that was before they built a bridge! Since 1984 this fine ship has served as the home of Columbia Yacht Club and is a real treat to enjoy. You'll be escorted aboard and given the royal treatment on The Abby, as she's fondly called. By the end of the event, maybe I'll even have you signed up for sailing lessons or even club membership!

Here's that Map Link so that you can plot your arrival at the ship.

Be sure to check out the Club Website for more information about the club and the vessel.

Of course, we'd love for you to Like Them On Facebook!

You're welcome to Follow Them On Twitter, even though they need a little help keeping that updated!

    Those of us who showed up had a terrific time! I just wish there were fewer last minute cancellations. And to those of you no-shows who did not bother to cancel, we gotta talk!
