Wow! It’s not only 2018 but, it’s already March -- and in April, our activities will begin. Next month, we will have our annual clean-up (ugh!) and ask that all members try to lend a hand. The reward will be our first social event for the year, the Prep Signal Party. And in May we can expect a Mast Raising event where sailors and crew will assist one another in readying their boats for racing, followed by a Cinco de Mayo Party. Please be on the alert for dates and times for these events as well as our first races which are likely to take place before May has ended.

We are once again offering our every popular Junior Sailing School which is open to children of all members of the Lake Mohawk Country Club. We will have trained, US Sailing certified instructors teaching the classes. Classes are open to LMCC members and will run from June 25, 2018 to July 27, 2018.
