A New VSS Event?

On Saturday the 4th of November the VSS is gathering on the shores of Lemon Bay for a potluck/picnic. This event is being held jointly with the Englewood Sailing Association who are based in the park. It is part of an effort to create connections with in the sailing community at large.

BOATS!

If your keel boat can navigate down the ICW, Indian Mound Park is an easy dingy in from anchorage.  Your presence at the event is most welcomed as the VSS is a keel boat club.

If you have a small boat or dinghy this  park and the adjoining sailing waters in Lemon Bay are ideal. The park has a boat ramp/launch  and the beach is long and flat out to the bay.
