boats for a Squadron Raft-Up
in Lake Worth off Old Port Cove. What a nice relaxing day.

We gather at the Ports O' Call docks and board Captain
Bob Malone's pontoon boat for the cruise to the Raft-Up off Old Port Cove.
With our burgee flapping in the breeze on a sunny day we approach and
join the Raft-up.
Diane Clarke views the "gathering fleet" as we approach and she notes
John Worssam's "anchor boat", Euphoria, as
Ole Sail course teacher Bud Green hails a greeting.
Big and small they arrive. David Cross secures his Jet Ski after
arriving for the Raft-Up as Anchor Boat Capt John Worssam and
Verena Flanders look on.
Dick Clarke chats over the rail with Michael Stern . . . naturally about
boating stuff or the big one that got away.
Boat hopping during raft-ups found Rowena Randle (adjusting her hair), a
smiling Verena Flanders, Janice Tedesco, Bill Flanders (cap)
Dot Blackburn, and Al Casanova (blue shirt) all engaging in pleasantries
Janice Tedesco (r) and Dot Blackburn (L) display some of their nice cold
fresh fruit pass-a-rounds.
