As most of you know this club has been around since 1983.
We are presently working on our 29th Regatta.
We enjoy running our from scratch built boats as well as ready to
run boats. The idea is to have fun, whether it is a museum
quality boat or just a simple store bought one, the idea is to enjoy
what you are doing.
I have been with this club about 20 years and really only wanted
to do the newsletter, started out to be only a temporary job but
after 10 years it looks like it will be a permanent job.
Bob Chapman enjoyed building boats, and
especially enjoyed building the "Jeremiah O'Brien" a WWII Liberty
ship which was used during the Normandy invasion. He build the
vessel only from photographs, the original vessel is still in San
Francisco, CA, but if you live in the St Louis area, you may enjoy
seeing the 8-foot ship at Soldier's Memorial.
Hope you can join us at one of our outings and become a member,
lots of talent and helpful members.
