HBYC Celebrates the end of Prohibition at Winter Rendezvous

After a long day of meetings, checking boats in frigid temperatures, and learning about the perils of Probition in the 1920's, the Harbor Bay Yacht Club celebrated the the repeal of Prohibition 85 years ago in style with the Rum Runners Ball.

Following dinner and the Change of Watch Ceremony, members in 1920's era attire enjoyed the music provided by the Windjammers Big Band.
