View Full Version : Lake Dora, Dora Canal cruise

There were Saturday cruises on Lake Dora, through the Dora Canal, to Lake Harris Hideaway for lunch. Does anyone know if they are still going on? I think they were on the first Saturday of the month which would be next Saturday, just curious.

(http://www.vintageraceboatshop.com/CRA-FloridaVintageRaceBoatCircuit.htm) These are vintage and classic race boats from the early 1900ís to the 1980ís. It is also interesting to note that many CRA members do not own vintage race boats but join for the social activities, especially all the fun at our regattas and ourMonthly Fun Run & Gathering. Our winter boating season is just beginning down here in Florida, all boat types are welcomed, come join all the fun !!!

Even without a boat, please join us for lunch, lots of banter and a regatta update !!!

At noon we will stop for lunch at the lake Harris Hideaway. (http://lakeharrishideaway.net/) They promise to put us in the side room so we can make lots of noise.

This will also be a planning meeting for our next event !!!
