South Tahoe Wooden Boat Classic

The Tahoe Keys Marina and Yacht Club in South Lake Tahoe welcomed the South Tahoe Wooden Boat Classic hosted by the Northern CA/Lake Tahoe Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society on July 30th-31st. South Lake Tahoe was the perfect backdrop to display 72 antique and classic boat. They also honored the Thunderbird's 70th year on Lake Tahoe (see pictures below). Over 2,200 people walked the docks to admire the breathe taking display of wooden boats. The proceeds from the weekend went to City of South Lake Tahoe Fire Department, Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe, Kiwanis Club of Lake Tahoe and the Thunderbird Lodge Preservation Society.
