Open House this Sunday!

May 28, 11am – 2pm

Drop in, have a chat and check out all that is happening at the WIBC this summer. Now is the time to renew your membership and register for a summer program.  Lot’s of new faces, a new boat or two, and perhaps the Dragon will set out for its inaugural 2017 paddle.

See you there!



Work Party #2 Saturday

Spic and Span and just like new! With elbow grease, good company and Brittany’s banana muffins a lot of work was done last weekend. Raked, scrubbed, and rinsed, the yard & hulls are looking mighty fine.
