This month we will host Captain Bob from Double Action Dive Charters, who will speak on the great opportunities that Lake Michigan and Lake Erie provide when it comes to shipwrecks. Lake Michigan is the grave to nearly 2,000 vessels, and only 600 have been found. I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting, and thank you all for being good ambassadors to the sailing community.
Hopefully you have had a chance to get your boats wet and not just from the rain. I know this is a busy time of the year for everyone, but I wanted to make sure to relay the positive feedback that we have received from the speakers. They all have similar messages, that we are a great group that shows a genuine interest in the subjects covered, and that the questions asked are thought provoking.
Last month we hosted Bill Bloom, who sparked a lively discussion on retirement plans for living on a boat and what capital is required to live comfortably. Bill had an interesting point that we need to plan for the three stages of retirement, the Go-Go years, the Slow Go years and the No Go years. That is one of the things that is hard to judge for most of us.
