Nine ChYC boats made the trip to Dataw Island Marina for the Labor Day weekend. In addition, we had six club members join us by automobile. In all, there were twenty-four members present for the cocktail party and dinner Saturday evening along with three guests.
Several members and past commodores of the Dataw Island Yacht Club joined us for the cocktail party, which we held in the gazebo (shelter) at the marina. The party was BYOB, and the hors-d’oeuvres were great. Afterwards, we dined at the Sweet Grass Restaurant, and everyone thought the food was wonderful.
Sunday morning some of the attendees took a walking tour of Dataw Island before the brunch which began at 10 A.M. in the gazebo. The group was introduced to “omelets in a bag” along with bagels, cream cheese, jam, donut holes, Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and coffee.
Sunday evening there was a cocktail hour on “Sea Wings” with delicious hors-d’oeuvres and great company. We all enjoyed a beautiful sunset together. Everyone had fun at Dataw Island. Some of us rode bicycles around the island, hiked, and swam in the indoor pool located next to the marina. Some relaxed in their boats, and a few visited friends who reside on the island. Hopefully, we’ll be able to repeat the trip next year and have even more boats attend.
