Have you seen those videos of fisherman whipping their boats into a dock for prizes---well....Mathews County is bringing it!  Our Cruising Leadership has a great venue to join in the fun and watch!

The event takes place on Saturday June 22nd from 11 AM to 7:00 PM at Williams Wharf on the East River and it is a benefit for the Mathews Volunteer Fire Dept. The event includes bands and beer. There will be food trucks and other vendors too. Organizers will shuttle you from your boat to the event. Hail them on VHF channel 18. This is a ticketed event, but you may be able to watch from your own boat anchored a safe distance away.
