Our first boating event in 2016 was an informal gathering at Spring Valley Lake in Victorville, CA, north of Los Angeles. It’s a private lake; and the home owners association and yacht club very kindly hosted our wooden and classic glass boats for the weekend.
This reporter forgot to count, but let’s say we had at least ten boats and thirty club members in attendance. The weather was cool and blustery, with occasional sun, but as long as you’re messing around in classic boats, what’s a little shivering between friends?
Spring Valley Lake is a 200 acre man-made waterski lake, surrounded by homes. We collected a few onlookers during our parades around the lake on Saturday afternoon.
