Lake Erie Catalina Owners Association

42nd Annual Cleveland

Mid-America Sail & Power Boat Show

What happens when a group of Catalina owners get together - they have FUN! That was the idea behind forming the Lake Erie Catalina Owners Association (LECOA). On June 24, 1997 an enthusiastic group of Catalina owners met and by the end of the evening the LECOA was formed with officers elected, dues approved, committees formed and activities planned.

Since that initial meeting, rendezvous have been held in Cleveland, Leamington, Lorain, and Vermilion. Meetings have been held in Berea, Cleveland, and the Flats. Guest speakers have addressed such timely issues as electronics, sails and sail care, weather, and winterizing. In addition, Freeman-Eckley, the local Catalina dealer, has offered the LECOA space at the Cedar Point and Cleveland boat shows allowing members to meet other Catalina owners as well a means to foster the growth of the association.

1999 should be another great year with rendezvous scheduled for Sandusky Harbor Marina, Sandusky, OH on June 12th, Leamington, Ontario on July 10th, and Huron Boat Basin, Huron, OH on August 21st. Also, meetings will be held in February and tentatively in April, July, and October. Our annual meeting in December will conclude the associationís activities for the year and set the stage for the millennium.

Current membership stands at sixty boats with a captain and crew count over one hundred strong. For more information, contact one of the LECOA Bridge members or better yet, come to our next meeting and meet fellow Catalina owners.

The LECOA - Be a part of it in 1999!
