REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED for this cruise. We are working with the Marina Staff to place the boats that are currenlty Registered for the event. It is a small marina, and they have to accommodated a 'Flotilla' that is part of the Festival Event and then they will be able to confirm which of our boats they can accommodate based on their size. In the meantime we have started a 'Wait List' that they will try to accommodate after that. We expect to know which boats have been confirmed with a slip sometime in February. The 'Wait List' will be open until we know.
"Contraband Days" has a new name: Louisiana Pirate Festival and will be held May 3-13. The Bord du Lac Marina is located adjacent to the Lake Charles Civic Center. All festival activities will be on the grounds of the Civic Center. Schedule of Events will be out later in the spring.
