Mother Hen Cruise

Mother Hen Cruise, Saturday July 31 2021

The Mother Hen Race shall be a White Sail Pursuit Race from H.Y.C. to Carillon Island

The Mother Hen Cruise began as a joint effort organized by J.P. and Betty Petolas (power boaters) and Ted Bowser (sail boater) and took the form of a combination cruise and sailboat race. The power boaters offered to transport supplies so that the sailboats, some small in stature, could race up to Carillon Island. The trip upriver was followed by a day on the beach, dinner and a pleasant evening of rafting together offshore. This has become a family affair so bring the kids, pack your dinner and hibachi and meet us at the Club for a 14:30 departure.
 
NOTE: Children under the age of 18 must be supervised by a parent or guardian.

LOCATION

The beach is located on the North East side of Carillon Island. As usual, we promise to leave the beach cleaner than when we arrived, so everyone, please pitch in.
