What a great start to the Cruising Season we are having. Thirteen members of ASC, mostly cruisers, were at Charleston’s Race Week last month. A great time was had by all! Charleston Yacht Club’s regatta’s parties are the best, and we enjoyed them fully.



Soiree, Capriole, Center and Good Golly Miss Molly. We had a full load out on Soiree, and the views of the club and dam under the bright full moon were incredible. The Coys and Wests shared information they learned in Annapolis, MD at Cruiser’s University and Tim Buss gave a recap of the Poker Run Race held earlier in the day. 
The Saturday night raft-up was equally successful.  With seven boats in attendance, we had a “fiesta” late into the night.   In honor of Cinco de Mayo, everyone brought latin appetizers and libations.  They were so delicious and plentiful that no one cooked dinner!  It was great to have many of the regular cruisers, plus a few we haven’t had at a raft-up in a while there with us.

Mark Your Calendars.  Memorial Weekend is not only the Castleberry Regatta, but the Plum Branch Beach Music Raft-up as well.  Enjoy your club by taking part in at least one (if not all) of these fun events! 

The weekend of June 2-3 is our next Full Moon Cruise, and I am excited for the opportunity to have my sundowner while floating in the lake with friends.  Won’t you join us? 

As always, hail “Full Moon Cruisers” on VHF16, or just call me (Brenda Coy) at 706/296-3027 as the location of the raft-ups change with the weather and known attendees’ time limitations.  If you are on the e-mail “short list”, you will get a reminder earlier in the week before the cruise.  Get on the list by emailing Brenda Coy at 

We continue to hear that Thunder Over Thurmond will return to the main part of the lake this year on July 7-8, and the fireworks raft-up is always the best attended of all our cruises.  The next Cruiser’s Corner will not be available in time to get the group organized, so make sure you are on the Cruiser’s e-mail “short list” so you will be included in preparations for the event.


See you on the lake!
