51V2EAG50WLA German submarine patrols the Atlantic Ocean during World War II, manned by a crew that must contend with tense conflicts and long stretches of confined boredom. While war correspondent Werner (Herbert Grönemeyer) observes day-to-day life aboard the U-boat, the grizzled captain (Jürgen Prochnow) struggles to maintain his own motivation as he attempts to keep the ship’s morale up in the face of fierce battles, intense storms, and dwindling supplies.

It’s a potluck so please bring something German to eat and drink. Register.

c) Gypsy Soul. Photo: http://www.degabrielephoto.com The sophisticated sounds of Gypsy Soul

“Authentic” and “excellent” are the words most often used to describe The Gypsy Soul Experience.

Their soulful blend of Roots Rock, Blues, and Jazz is born from love, heartache, struggle, and determination and has a multi-textured yet nuanced message that is both universal and intimate, familiar yet otherworldly.

Gypsy Soul began 20 years ago in Scotland when Roman Morykit (UK) and Cilette Swann (Canada/USA) made a promise to each other to make both their living and their lives from their art. They call their shows, “Around The World With Gypsy Soul.” Register.

Past events

Saturday, September 15th from 8:00am – The Club Gives Back Community Action – Coastal Cleanup Day (CCD) – Meet at the Harbor House

coastal-cleanup-day-michelle-social-croppedThe Club particiapted in the State’s largest volunteer event, Coastal Cleanup Day. The Club provided bagels and coffee, trash bags and gloves. Club members fanned out along the shoreline, parking lots and open areas around the marina and beyond to the slough to collect all human-created trash. Each member picked up an average of 10 pounds of trash. See the blog post by event leaders Shannon and Tod.

Friday, August 17th at 6:00 pm – International Speaker Series – Brad Webb is a New Zealand sailor who has competed in multiple America’s Cup races.

Growing up in Wellington, Webb was a member of the Muritai Yacht Club where he sailed P-class yachts. Webb sailed with Tag Heuer Challenge in the 1995 Louis Vuitton Cup and with America True in the 2000 Louis Vuitton Cup. He was the bowman on USA 17 when it won the 2010 America’s Cup.

Friday, August 3rd at 6:30 pm – Movie Night – Please bring a dish to share and a beverage of your choice.

The movie will be the animated feature “The Triplets of Belleville”. It tells the story of young bicyclist Champion, who, encouraged and trained by his grandmother Madame Souza, dreams of winning the Tour de France – until he is kidnapped mid-race by a group of Mafia gangsters, who seek to use his bicycling prowess in an elaborate gambling scheme. Aided by their faithful, but endearingly overweight dog Bruno, Madame Souza sets out to rescue her grandson, Along the way, they meet a trio of aging jazz musicians, the Triplets of Belleville, who, in their own inimitable way, provide invaluable assistance in the rescue attempt.

“Triplets” is one of those achievements that defies categorization. It is imaginative, quirky, uncanny, eccentric, inventive, kooky, magical, etc. … and entertaining for both adults and children (who are welcome to attend!). Had it not faced “Finding Nemo” at the Academy Awards, it might well have won.

Friday, July 27th at 6:00 pm – Special Members Evening

Mumbo

r are all words that aptly describe Scott Kirby. Writing songs for a new CD, performing 150 live shows a year throughout the US and Canada, and holding down the stage at his own club—Key West’s Smokin’ Tuna Saloon—keep the barnacles off this modern-day troubadour.
