Next Meetup

Waterskiing, Wakeboarding, Tubing, Sunning, Swimming and BBQ Picniking (phew!)
Come one - Come all. Bring the whole family. It's a chance to try a new location!! New members and children are welcome. We will be meeting and hanging out at Ballard Park in Melbourne. The park has pavilions, picnic tables, grills, bathrooms, boat ramps, and sandy areas to beach boat, fish and swim. And for those of you who are adventurous (like me), we will also be waterskiing and tubing in an area that is just a 10-15 minute boat ride away. You are welcome ski or tube at your leisure, or simply ride on the boat to feel the warm breeze on your face. And, of course, if you simply want to relax on the beach and converse with friends, you are welcome to do that as well. And for those of you who like to laugh, you can also sit near the boat ramps and make fun of the people who do not know how to back up a trailer or launch a boat (just make sure you get there way after I've launched my boat so you don't get the chance to laugh at me).

    We are a boating group that plies the waters of the Gulf, to the shores of the Atlantic, and all the bodies of water inbetween: to boat, sail, gunkhole, ski, scuba, picnic, fish, lobster, scallop, camp and enjoy all that the quentisential, pristine Florida climate has to offer. If you are looking for local knowledge from experienced skippers who have been there, done that, and know the ins and outs of the bodies of water from the open ocean to the narrow rivers and lakes, this is the club for you!
