Post Race

The 2016 post race soup’n’bread will be at the Shelter Bay Clubhouse after the race. To get to the Clubhouse, go back to Maple (the main road) and turn right. Head across the orange bridge, and take the first left into Shelter Bay. Tell the guard, if there is one, that you are with Sound Rowers. Follow Shelter Bay Drive about a mile as it goes down a fairly steep hill with a putting area and the marina on your left. Turn left just past the golf area. There should be plenty of parking adjacent to the clubhouse.
