A message from Mooring Fleet Admiral Tim Parshall

Please take a few minutes and check the condition of your boat and mooring lines. Remember that two lines are required. Every year we have to rescue one or two boats that break loose and endanger other boats in the fleet! Also please make sure your cockpit drains are clear!
