We like to get together year round. We´re on land in the winter, on the water in the summer, and we double-up and do both in the fall and spring. We’ve got raft ups and cruises, dinners and holiday parties, and a speaker series with some top-notch presentations. You can just do the education classes if you want, but we bet you´ll find your way to a social event sooner or later. Here are descriptions of some of the things we do.
Location. The primary location will be Big Water Beach or the cove behind Big Water Beach that is accessed by the inlet to the South. If you have a good location that you would like to suggest, contact the Administrative Officer so they can put it on the list. Locations with depths up to 25-30 feet, away from heavy boat traffic, are generally best for this type of thing.
A cruise is an organized boating activity that can happen on our home lake, Lake Hartwell, or at any other boating location. Cruises are planned in advance and follow a specific route and schedule. Boaters with trailerable boats can take advantage of cruises that are held in distant locations. The squadron holds cruising events annually in Charleston, Lake Murray, the Tennessee River, and anywhere else that members would like to go.
