We love to meet and do anything we can think of in sight of, near to, or on the water! Owning a boat is not a requirement. Everyone who loves the water and our beautiful Skidaway waterfront is welcomed!

I am hoping all of you will be attending and renewing your membership for 2019…..the Social committee has put together some new and fun events for this year, like “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” cocktail party, a sunset cruise and a Sunrise Breakfast. We will be featuring a 50/50 raffle at each event (beginning in February) with proceeds going to a local organization – one we hope you will help us choose from one of the suggested (they will be featured at the event) or one that you may have in mind.
Again, on behalf of the Board of Directors and the Social Committee, we hope to see you on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at Plantation, the event begins at 6:00 PM.

The Skidaway Island Boating Club (SIBC) celebrated the traditional end of the boating season with a “Spooktacular Year-end Bash” which was held on Thursday, October 18th. The Year-end Bash was a monstrous success, with Spooktacular decorations, devilishly good food, and a frightfully good time enjoyed by all. Ghosts fluttering in the breeze welcomed guests in the entranceway, Barnes Catering served up fantastic food, and the music kept everyone in the mood! Many embraced the spirit of the evening, attending in costume. Judges awarded prizes for some very unique categories, which were won by a biker chick, a Pope, and a 1950s sock-hopper! Three cheers for all of our contestants!
Many thanks to Susie Fusco and her crew for putting this event together. The event marks the traditional end of the boating season, even though boating is enjoyed year-round here on Skidaway.
Keep an eye out for announcements on SIBC social events in future newsletters as you enjoy the upcoming holidays.
OTHER RECENT SIBC EVENTS
On September 11th, the Carefree Boat Club hosted a cruise to A-J’s for lunch. Sixteen SIBC members participated; it was a picture perfect day to enjoy the hour long cruise. A big thank you to the Carefree Boat Club for their generosity!
Also in September, A group of women from the SIBC, known as the Sea Sisters (a faction of the Carefree Boat Club) took a short holiday in St. Augustine, FL. St. Augustine, founded in 1565, is the oldest city in the US. The Sea Sisters took advantage of one of the benefits Carefree Boat Club offers – reciprocity with other Carefree locations. They cruised the intercostal waterway on a 22′ pontoon boat named General Relativity.
