Most members joined America's Boating Club - Charlotte to learn boating skills but stayed for the friendships. Our club offers a variety of monthly events throughout the year like parties, picnics, on-the-water events, civic activities and general meetings. Members have access to on- and off-the-water activities, cruises and rendezvous, learning opportunities, boating mentors and hands-on boating courses.
