Driving the boats is a first for the local Freedom Boat Club
On March 10, members of the Freedom Boat Club completed their first boat race, moving 16 boats in two teams from the docks at Riverside Business Park on the Broadkill River in Lewes, up the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal, across the bay from Rehoboth to Love Creek Marina. off Highway 24 in preparation for the 2022 boating season.
The Freedom Boat Club maintains docks in four locations, including Riverside, Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal, Love Creek and Long Neck.
Members of the Sea Sisters, a local chapter of women of the sea who encourage and empower themselves to get out on the water with confidence through social, educational and community activities and events, assisted with the flotilla. “Last winter we saw so much snow and it was very cold,” said Sea Sisters Ambassador LeeAnn Augustine. “It’s great to get back on the water and drive the boats to their new locations. Warm weather for boating is fast approaching.
Sea Sisters has also helped move boats to other Freedom Boat locations in the Cape May, NJ, and Annapolis, Md areas.
