Tracing the Latin root for Power Fleet, we find that it means “Good Times!” or “Let’s Party!” Legend says that CCYC's Power Fleet was formed in 1982 under Past Commodores Ray McMullen and Armando Ingratta with exactly that goal in mind. Those days are fondly remembered now as a time of star dock mayhem, great friendships, legendary parties and an annual Pork Chop Dinner.
As Montrose Harbor changed over the years and CCYC membership increased, the backbone of the Power Fleet has stayed true to that original vision – make friends, help out, eat well, drink better and laugh a lot. And with a broad range of members, old and new, power and sail, on-shore and off, we continue to do just that whether it's during the season or out of it.
We sponsor many of the all-club parties throughout the year, including traditional events, such as the Kentucky Derby Party, Air and Water Show After Party, Fish This!, the Chili Cook-off, the Big Kidz Christmas Party and the Super Bowl Party. The Power Fleet also sponsors a few newer events like The Derby Party, The Denzaroo Invitational Golf Tournament and The College Tailgate BBQ Smoke Out Contest. There are also the less formal off-season trivia nights, bowling get-togethers or happy hours where we catch up and count the days until the boats go back in the water.
Power or sail? We go both ways. If you like to have fun, and we do mean serious amounts of fun, then Power Fleet might just be for you.
$35 annually makes all of this happen. If interested in joining, email the current Power Fleet Captain, Natalie Holliday.
