I received a call today from one of our Northern California/Lake Tahoe Chapter members. One of the things we ended up talking about was the informal fun events that NorCal/Lake Tahoe Chapter members often do together. The fun of boating is getting together and going boating!  The timing for this call was spot on because earlier in the week I had just recently looked through some photos that my husband took at one such event in 2015. The boat owners were recreating the old Lake Tahoe races of yester-year, and they had a lot of fun doing it! 

I hope these photos inspire you and your Chapter have these informal get togethers on your home waters this coming boating season. 


Early morning gathering at the pier.

Boats from all different North American builders represented.

Filming me , filming you!

Some take the fun to a whole new level!

Remember – Safety First!


  1. A surprise opening for the G-9 racer. Your Old Lk. Tahoe race photos reminisce yester-year are inspiring. ‘Split Second’ and ‘My Sin’ staged different era, record setting competition fast speeds.

  2. I think this was a wonderful event I would like to see it again. I would definitely enter and join in for the fun!
