Fort Myers, Florida – The sailing club with the unusual name – Caloosahatchee Marching & Chowder Society (CMCS) – began celebrating a milestone achievement on Saturday. Their annual Change of Watch Banquet was held January 11th at the Marina at Edison Ford with live entertainment from The Pitbull of the Blues band and kicked off […]
The Club’s Thanksgiving cruise is in the books. Cabbage Key fed 27 of us in fine fashion. The food was delicious. Weather couldn’t have been better. Warm days and cool nights. We shared snacks on the beach two evenings and one on Chase the Clouds. Plenty of time for beach walking and hanging out to […]
We had a great event for the third 2019 – 2020 Boat of the Year Event. The first race of the season is always Summerset, but then there was a race down in Naples in late October and then we (CMCS) host the Festival of the Islands. By the way – for anyone interested – […]
What a great weekend with fantastic weather and a terrific turnout for the 54th annual Summerset Regatta! 53 boats participated, either racing or cruising throughout the weekend of October 4-6. Hundreds of sailors celebrated together at the Friday Captain’s Party at Bonita Bill’s, the Saturday Cocktail Party at Nauti Parrot and the Sunday Awards Banquet […]
Here are the results from this weekend’s race. Thanks to all participants. We originally had 11 boats signed up but the wether was a little light on the wind component! But eventually the wind came around. I scored everyone in one class as this is a fun race and there was not enough boats […]
CHICAGO, Ill. (July 28, 2019) – The 2019 Independence Cup and U.S. Para Sailing Championship, hosted by the Judd Goldman Sailing Center and organized by the Judd Goldman Adaptive Sailing Foundation came to a close Sunday afternoon after three days of exciting and closely contested racing under challenging conditions on Lake Michigan. All three winners […]
CMCS had five member boats out of the fleet of eleven that participated in the “Most Memorable Regatta” overnight race to Tampa Bay. Included in the fleet were “faster” boats including a Swan 53 and a Corsair trimaran, both of who beat Windy City on elapsed time, but Windy City won the whole race after […]
Ladies bridge club went to Mote Aquarium two times in the month of May. Both occasions were great and included water ski show. We will see you in the Fall when Ladies Bridge Club will do a water School tour.
We had a great time at Burnt Store Marina over Easter. There were seven boats on our three day tour. Blown Away, Bridget O’Toole, Buffy, Chase the Clouds, Foxy Lady, Lazy Susan, and Ranger all joined in the festivities over the weekend. Normally we start out at Pelican Bay for our Easter cruise but kudos […]
Five hardy crews ventured down to this favorite CMCS rendezvous in the heart of the 10,000 Islands. Five boats made it to this semi-remote area. We can not call it a truly remote area because we still have one tick on our cell phones. The stalwart vessels were Bridget O’Tool, Freestyle, Lazy Susan, Samphire, and […]
I am absolutely going to claim credit for the weather! Clearly insuring sunny skies and fair breezes is the Cruise leader’s responsibility. A number of boats actually sailed a good part of the way. At anchor Friday were Bridgett O’Toole; Chase the Clouds; Rum Daze; Blown Away; Trust Me!!!; Jolly Mon; Gopher Baroque; Ranger; […]
We had a surprisingly low turn-out for what is usually a popular cruise. Only nine boats participated. This can possibly be blamed on the forecast of poor weather. But, we actually experienced fairly good weather. In fact, we did not experience wind on the nose either going nor returning from Pelican Bay. This seems to […]
While this is not a CMCS Event, our members have been invited to attend.
We have now finished the last of the CMCS Winter Series. We had two boats new to racing with CMCS take first and second (Honour and Pepper) which is great. The more boats that we can get to participate the better. Thank you John Churchill and Carol Robinson for running the races and being committee […]
Here is a little fun YouTube video that Eric and Holly put together: – – – –
Everyone was scored as one class as we only had six boats racing. You can easily see the results by class if you choose. But still a great day on the water. We ended up running four races with a nice tight course.
What a great day on the water! Races were fun, competitive and at times, plenty of wind. And then the after party. I just feel sorry for all the people that didn’t come. Beer, Wings, Shrimp. And then lots of great conversation! The official results are as follows and the details are attached. Help the […]
