Yes, we race and cruise...  but we also gather with no other purpose than to enjoy good food and each other's company. 

 

We also volunteer with Lake Lanier Association's annual "Shore Sweep", a large lake clean-up project held each September.

Monthly

On 4th Sundays, we host a Member Social and MeetingPlease check the calendar to confirm details and not miss any changes.
