May 13- June 3, 2018- Cruise to Abaco, Bahamas:Our Annual Boat Trip this year will be to the Abacos, Bahamas. This year we will have three separate groups to begin with. Sailboats will leave first about 10 May as they have to go down around the Keys, stopping in Bimini, the hooking up at West End with the main group. The main group will leave on 13 May, crossing through Lake Okeechobee to Stuart, where they will proceed to meet up with the sailboats. There will be a third group that will also traverse the Lake and follow their own course. The main group has the following plan:
