Ron Robb Special People Cruise
Sep 11 all-day

The Ron Robb Special People Cruise is an annual event hosted by SRYC Charities. This free event provides individuals with special needs with recreational and educational opportunities. The Special People Cruise takes place at Starved Rock Yacht Club along the Illinois River, adjacent to Starved Rock State Park.  Individuals of all ages are encouraged to attend regardless of their need level as we can accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.

Some Highlights of the Cruise Include:

  • Boat rides along the Illinois River (life jackets provided)
  • Assortment of games, crafts, prizes and music
  • Illinois river ecology and natural resource educational activities
  • Complimentary lunch provided to all participants

Visit the SRYC Charities Website to learn more about their programs and grants.

Volunteers are needed on the day of the event for food, games, life jacket fitting, boat captains, etc. Anyone who is able to help with setup on Friday, please come! And be sure to save some energy for cleanup after the event Saturday afternoon. Many hands make light work! Most of the parking lot will be needed for the event, so please help by moving your vehicles as requested by the event staff.

Haul-Out 2021
Oct 23 @ 7:00 am

Haul out is scheduled for Saturday. October 23. Fees, which include fall haul-out and spring launch, are $160 (for boats using the crane or trailer), plus $10/foot for winter storage. Fees for boats staying in the water are $10/foot, plus $100 if you use a bubbler. Haul-out fees must be paid in advance. Contact Jim Vaughn with any fee questions.

While most boats will come out on the crane, this year we may be using our travel trailer also. We may be able to haul out some boats (up to 34 ft) a little later in the season. Some of our fleet can be moved with the trailer, depending on weight and length. Please contact the Commodore if you have special issues to discuss about hauling your boat.

Here are the winter storage maps.
