Yachtaid Global is hosting a special even onboard the U.S.S. Potomac on Friday, September 6. This three hour cruise will include dinner, live music and drinks with proceeds supporting Yachtaid’s efforts to bring humanitarian and developmental aid to struggling and isolated nations. The U.S.S. Potomac was christened as the Coast Guard cutter Electra in 1934 until she was claimed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1936 and renamed Potomac. She then served as the presidential yacht until Roosevelt’s death in 1945. The yacht is currently based in Oakland, California.

Since the early 1990s, the Ocean Reef Club has hosted a yearly Vintage Weekend for members and guests, a celebration of meticulously restored boats, planes, and cars. The exhibition has expanded in the past two decades and includes now traditional outings like the road rally and an aerobatic show from the participating planes. This year the event will run from Thursday December 5 to Sunday December 8. Located in Key Largo, Florida, the Ocean Reef Club includes a private airport as well as a marina, golf course, fine dining and accommodations for both rental and purchase.
