Wood & Glory XIX is right around the corner.  It’s our second boating event of 2017 and it is expected to be as good as or better than all the other 18 years!  This year’s four day weekend starts on June 1st.  A gathering of classic boating activities with families and friends promises lots of fun!  This year the “sprint boat” races will be going on in Lakeport while you’re there and we’ve left lots of free time for you to check it out.

For now, here’s the schedule:

New this year, Lakeport Sprint Boat Grand Prix race boat event will be held June 2-4.  Sanctioned by Southern California Speedboat Club, this event will feature 8 classes of contemporary –world-class race boats with speeds to 140 MPH. This is NOT a W&G ACBS activity; yet our John Lawrence can tell you all about these racers and we anticipate our members will want to “classic boat” up to Lakeport and see these fast boats.  Stay tuned, and hang on!
