Yachtsmen’s Association - 2019 Spring Cruise to Sandusky


Hello Yachtsmen's Association Members!  We are pleased to announce this year's Spring Cruise will be held at the Sandusky Yacht Club in Sandusky, OH.  We have an exciting weekend planned and I hope that you can join us!

Some highlights:

  • Friday, June 6th We have an exciting evening planned at HALO Live!  HALO Live! is a great example of the resurgence that Sandusky is currently experiencing.  This historical church has been repurposed to a state-of-the-art recording studio!  Join us for dinner, dancing, and some top secret live entertainment!

  • Saturday, June 7th Two options to see and experience all that Sandusky has to offer! 

    • Unlock Sandusky – A modern scavenger hunt throughout downtown Sandusky.  Get a clue on a fun, interactive, and competitive scavenger hunt dedicated to Sandusky’s history.  This is a special adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints and strategy as you walk around downtown, learning about Sandusky’s history in order to advance on an hour-long quest. Prizes will be awarded for the quickest time, best team photo, and best dressed dog (doesn’t have to be yours)!  Please note that this activity requires walking throughout downtown Sandusky – about a mile or so in total; please wear comfortable shoes. The Scavenger hunt starts at a location away from the yacht club - please plan on arriving 15 minutes early (details to follow).  

    • SanBrew Bike - If you’re ready for something really different, book a ride with SanBrew Bike. The 12-person bike takes sightseeing to a whole new level and a group adventure! Tour will commence / end at Sandusky Yacht Club.  The 9am tour will focus on historical Sandusky landmarks, while the afternoon tours will stop at 2 local watering holes.  Step on board and enjoy your favorite tunes on the rockin’ sound system, while enjoying an ice-cold beer, or some fine wine!

    • Dinner will be at the Sandusky Yacht Club with dinner and dancing.

  • Sunday, June 8th Feel free to enjoy the fabulous Sandusky Yacht Club Brunch before heading back to Catawba Island Club.
