Marcy's Musings
This is the big month of our Lakewood Yacht Club Commodore’s Cruise under Commodore Joyce Maxwell. Every year the current Commodore selects a destination cruise for members to participate in such as the British Virgin Islands, San Juan Islands in the Pacific northwest, or, perhaps, Alaska. Joyce chose a River Cruise entitled “Portraits of Southern France” with Viking River Cruises aboard the new Viking Longship “Hermond”. Being a group of 70 very independent members, some are flying into Paris or Lyon for a pre-cruise visit and some are planning a post cruise stay on the French Riviera. The cruise will last eight days and will go from Chalon to Avignon. It starts on Sept. 6 over Labor Day weekend and should be quite a memorable cruise with much camaraderie, French wine and cuisine, and a beautiful countryside to enjoy.

Meanwhile back at the club, other members will be enjoying Labor Day by attending the Member Mixer in the ballroom on Fri., Sept. 4 and fun and food around the pool on Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 7.  Live entertainment will be provided by a favorite musical group, LC Roots consisting of two Lakewood members Faron Daigle and Randy Wills.

Major changes are happening in the clubhouse. The dining room area is being completely remodeled floor to ceiling to include a hallway where members and guests can traverse from the bar/lounge end of the club to the far east end of the clubhouse where the game room and ballroom are located without having to walk through a crowded dining room. So where are members and guests supposed to dine for the next few months? In the lounge and in the game room. The game room has been moved to the Seahorse Sailing Center so the children can hang out on Fri. nights and weekends, under supervision, of course. Another change is the enclosure of our covered patio so that we will have another meeting room space available. So, the next few months will be interesting, with at least one surprise a day!

There will be a Harvest Moon Regatta® Safety Day on Sat., Sept. 19, 8:30 am in the ballroom. All racers should attend this important workshop, especially if one is racing offshore for the first time. It is free and open to the public. The race itself starts on Thurs., Oct. 27 off the Pleasure Pier in the Gulf of Mexico and is a 150 mile race to Port Aransas where all activities and parties take place. We are expecting over 200 boats again this year and have 62 already registered as of mid August.

Our Ladies Association is hosting a “Taste of Lakewood” on Sat., Sept. 26, with tastings starting at 6:30 pm. The theme is French food to coincide with the Commodore’s Cruise in France earlier in the month. All Lakewood chefs are encouraged to participate in this fun evening. Also, over this last weekend of the month, cruisers are heading for Freeport.

Stay safe on the water!
