Bill Requires Corps Plan For Flooding By 2021........

Members of the Upper Mississippi, Illinois and Missouri Rivers Association commended the introduction of the bill HR 5288, the Upper Mississippi River Flood Control Act.


Mike Klingner, chair of the UMIMRA says that during 2019, there was record flooding across Missouri and the Upper Mississippi River basin, and we need to work towards developing solutions to reduce flood damage and protect people and property.......

Meramec River In St. Louis County, Missouri

Funny Taste Of Drinking Water Explained........


Residents of the Mehlville or Oakville areas may have noticed that their water has acquired a funny taste, and officials are saying that the recent heavy rainfall is the cause.


Missouri American Water states that the rainfall washes salt, leaves and other debris that is on the ground into the Meramec River, so they add carbon to counter it.  This causes a smell and taste like a chemical or chlorine.


Missouri American says that additional water treatment measures are being used to mitigate the smell and taste and tests are verifying that the water is safe to drink.  The water is expected to return to normal by Monday........

Mississippi River Near Caruthersville, Missouri

Flooding Left Behind Sinkholes....  Some 12 Feet Deep....


Several months of flooding along the Mississippi River has left behind dozes of sinkholes around the small town of Caruthursville, Missouri, causing road detours and swallowing up people's yards.


According to Sue Grantham, the city of 6,000 was built on top of a swamp.  The nearly four dozen sinkholes has caused approximately $4.5 million in damages, and it is likely there will be more sinkholes appearing.


Federal and state funding will cover approximately 90 percent of the cost of repairs.  The city, situated near the Tennessee border and in one of Missouri's poorest counties, will have a hard time coming up with it's approximately $450,000 share of the costs........

Hello Everyone!
We are happy to announce that Bloch Marine Service is becoming Yacht Club Marine. As of October 1st, 2019, Bloch Marine Service will no longer be taking new work orders, and will cease operations by October 31st, 2019.
But to keep service seamless, Yacht Club Marine will be performing the same quality service that you have come to expect over the years at both the Yacht Club of St. Louis and at Harbor Point Marina.
With that said, the winterization season is just around the corner, and it's time to get on the schedule to have expert winterization performed on your boat to protect it from the ravages of winter freezing. And also, winter is the best time to have Yacht Club Marine perform that much needed maintenance or big project that you have been putting off.
If your winterization request is received before October 15th, 2019, you will receive a 10% discount on winterization labor.
There is also a 10% discount on labor performed during the winter months for those big or small projects that the boat may need.
Best regards, and we'll see you out there!
The Yacht Club Marine Crew.

As the weather we have had this year with Heavy heart The event is going to be pushed till next year. 2020 The River levels we have had this year there is still no docks currently at New Athens, Water is still high on the Mississippi and the sandbar is still currently under water & still alot of floating logs in the Mississippi and Safety is a top priority. All Company's that have donated towards the event will remain the same. If anyone is interested in their Company joining for next year please reach out to me. All Tshirts sales will remain the same and Store will open up next year to purchase Tshirts. If you are interested in a Refund please always reach out if not your order will remain the same and your order will be sent out before the event next year. A date is not set in stone but will be set shortly. Possibly Labor day weekend have a tie up in party cove on Kaskaskia for people that will be staying local. Thank you Any thoughts please post below...Happy Boating

Yacht Club of St. Louis

Mississippi River

At UMR 225 On Dardenne Slough



Fuel dock is open, please use pump #1. Hope everyone has great weekend on the water!!



Plans for the club.....
The Clubhouse is insured with FEMA. The adjusters have been through the club and will hopefully be letting us know in the next coming weeks whether or not the building is repairable. We are on hold until that point.
The club got approximately 6 ft of water, covering all electric panels and all AC units. So clean up of building is taking longer while getting temp electric/water going.
I understand there is a lot of speculation, but there will be a club/pool at the harbor
We are doing the best we can and I will keep you informed as we hear.
Sorry, as I know this is not the season you were hoping for.
