Our first boating event of the year was an informal gathering at Spring Valley Lake in Victorville, CA, north of Los Angeles.  It’s a private lake, and the home owner’s association and yacht club are very kindly hosting our wooden and classic glass boats this 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 water ski lake, surrounded by homes.  We collected a few onlookers during our parades around the lake on Saturday afternoon.

Thanks to Dave and Cheryl Anderson for hosting their fellow club members at this event.
