Founded in 1971 as a collection of boating enthusiasts based out of Quincy, IL along the Mississippi River. 

50 years later the club is now over 100 members strong and still committed to its founding principles of promoting community, education, safety and fun on and off the river. 

We are dedicated to these principals, that we hold to be self-evident: Sun is better than rain - Friends are better than strangers - Boating is good for your soul!
