It was standing room only Tuesday night as nearly 200 boaters and concerned residents met at the Cape Coral Yacht Club to discuss the ongoing algae problems in the Caloosahatchee River and a red tide that’s lingered off the coast since November. The Caloosahatchee Marching and Chowder Society held a panel discussion with experts from […]

The Tuesday night April Membership Meeting & Grill Night rocked! Mother Nature blessed us with a breezy warm day so the temperature in the CCYC Pavilion was perfect. Our skilled set-up crew came out early and flexed their muscles as we had to move a lot of tables around! Wrestling with the “fresh breeze” to […]
Sails, Scholarships, Sydney, & Sales Edison Sailing Center has been the sailing equivalent of the Energizer Bunny the first quarter of 2018! We have much to share with you: many of you met Sydney Monahan at the December meeting. Sailor-Daughter of multihull sailor Art Monahan (& Denise), Sydney’s journey along the sailing continuum continues to […]
Ahoy Y’all! Once again, the annual Shrimp Boil was a belly-busting feast! We all enjoyed succulent fresh shrimp expertly prepared by Bob Duff and Mike Ziegler. The kitchen staff was augmented by Deedee Cheek, Kathleen Vance, Michael Cain and Bill Cook. Together they made up a well-oiled, perfectly orchestrated cooking machine which produced corn-on-the-cob, […]
Great first half of the race! Second half a little slow and the finish, a little wet! My committee on the RC boat had a lovely afternoon under the canvas watching the boats come in. We had 12 registered and 10 finish the race. Great after party at our new adopted club house at […]
So the results are in. We had a lovely race with an incredibly competitive fleet (at least for the front four boats). Here is a snap shot. Eroica managed to pull off a first, but if you look at the details, it was by a corrected time of only 46 seconds in the first race, […]
Thank you to Bev and Bob Duff for leading the EPOL cruise. They really know how to throw a party. The Oyster feast was great and we had as many boats as space would allow. Oysters were locally procured, tasted great, and we had just the right amount. A few hearty souls wandered over to […]
Great day on the water on February 10 and according to the smiles, lots of fun racing. We had eight boats engaged in the event plus we had CALUSA, my boat, taking part as committee. After three buoy races, everyone made their way to the Salty Sam’s Marina to tie up and then into the […]
The first race of the Winter Series was a fantastic day for sailing, followed by free beer at Salty Sam’s! Please Come Join Us This Saturday Feb 3! The Winter Series is bringing back the beer can race mentality of fun racing – and then right after each race a shore party at Salty Sam’s […]
Mardi Gras Chili Cook-off! WOW! The Mardi Gras Chili Gods provided us with the perfect day for the Cook-off! Warm enough that we didn’t have to wear sweaters (gasp-what are those?), but nice and breezy enough in the CCYC Pavilion so that we could enjoy the fruits of the 15 Chili Chefs without breaking a […]
Ahoy Ladies! On Tuesday December 5th the annual Ladies Bridge Club Christmas Party was held at Cathy Friedel’s home. The festivities began at 7:00 pm with 26-members participating. This was the largest number of participants we’ve had in the past few years. As a variety of wines, beers and soft drinks began to flow, there […]
Thanks to Carolyn Wilson and Dan Green for hosting parties in the Captain’s Lounge at Fisherman’s Village Marine, and helping our club ring in 2018. The pictures come from the cruise’s first stop at Pelican Bay. . . . . . . .
Kudos to Susan and John Reekie for hosting the Thanksgiving cruise at Pelican Bay. It was beautiful weather all week except for that rain Thanksgiving morning. You know you’re living right when the heavens part and clear as you’re getting ready to go to dinner at Cabbage Key.
Every month the Ladies Bridge Club tries to do something nautical in our wonderful backyard in Southwest Florida. On November 8, CMCS members & a photographer from the Naples Daily news met at Ostego Bay Marine Science Center located on San Carlos Island just across the street from Bonita Bill’s. We started with a movie […]
So the Festival of the Islands Race in Fort Myers today was fantastic! Fifteen knot plus winds out of the NE meant almost flat water and fast sailing. In all we had 9 boats across all four classes, but the closely competed cruising class had lots of photo finish sailing. Attached find the final results. […]
As we do every year – the Society sets up a booth at Fort Myers Boat Show!
A good number of our CMCS members volunteered over the weekend as Edison Sailing Center hosted River Romp – Junior Olympic sailing regatta in the Caloosahatchee. There were almost 150-sailors from Southern Florida, ranging in ages eight through his school. The kids had terrific weather the whole weekend for fast and challenging sailing. Attach are […]
