Volunteers give Maritime Days good kickstart

  #

Never let anyone tell you people don't make a difference. They can and they do.

A dedicated group of volunteers is changing the fortunes of Marine City's once-uncertain Maritime Days festival. Thanks to their efforts, the annual event appears to be back on track.

That wasn't the case earlier this year. After a dispute with Marine City officials, Marine City Festival Inc. announced in January that Maritime Days this year would be canceled. In their letter to the city, organizers said the decision was "due to early impediments and the loss of trustees, volunteers and commitments."    more...

Tommy Vasilos, 33, of St. Clair Shores, is looking forward to attending his first Jobbie Nooner on Friday at Gull Island in Lake St. Clair.

"Me and my brother got a new boat, a 39-foot Sea Ray, so we're going to take it out there," Vasilos said. "I want to see what Jobbie Nooner is all about. My buddy said he is going to bring six Hooters girls. It's going to be great."

Jobbie Nooner is the twice-a-year bash on the small island near the mouth of the St. Clair River in north Lake St. Clair where thousands of people on hundreds of boats converge to party on and near the beach.

DETROIT DRAGON BOAT REGATTA: Competition raises funds for cancer research

  #

The drums will thunder. The rowers will pull. And the dragon boats will take to the Detroit River off Belle Isle on Saturday.

Despite having amateur crews, all the boats are expected to travel in straight lines and no one is expected to get their paddles tangled.

"That could easily happen if you just let a bunch of knuckleheads get in the boat and start playing with it," laughed Dennis Wojdyla, a member of the Board of Directors of the Detroit Boat Club, the race's sponsor.

That, of course, explains why the one professional on each boat will be steering.

Dragon boats are 40-foot racing canoes decorated with carved dragon heads. They're crewed by 20 paddlers, a drummer to keep everyone in time and a coxswain to steer.    more...

Boaters provide ray of sunshine to disabled

  #

As if all the usual reasons weren’t enough to make you root for sunshine Saturday, consider the Detroit Yacht Club’s annual boat ride, picnic and dance.

The CAHA, as it’s known, is not for the members. Heck, they’re out on the water or dancing in the bar all the time. The guests of honor at the Crawford-Armstrong Handicapped Association event are more than 800 group home residents, and most of them only get one shot at a boat ride all year.

The CAHA started with one DYC member and a handicapped friend in 1974. The late Bud Armstrong decided that if Clair Crawford got a huge kick out of the day, others with physical or mental challenges probably would, too.

This time around, it will take nearly 200 volunteers — and cooperative weather — to provide smooth sailing for the CAHA. Technically, by the way, it’s smooth power-boating, since motorized vessels tend to have wider and more enclosed decks than sailboats.    more...
