Meet Our Partners!

Akwa Marina and Yacht Club is one of our key partners for the event. Akwa is located just 1/4 north of the Weirs Beach boulevard and although it is a private club, has opened its doors to us and welcomed our event. That means you are welcome as well. For anyone renting a canoe or a kayak (other than at the Meredith town boat ramp) you will be reporting to the Akwa Marina to launch and paddle to join the raft – a 1/4 mile paddle. When you are done at Weirs Beach and those festivities, you can paddle back to Akwa where you will find the brand new Akwa Marina Beach Bar waiting for you with food and drink specials. I have visited this eatery and there is no way to describe just how beautiful is the location and how fine the craftsmanship of the structure. It is truly an elegant place to eat and drink with an unsurpassed lakeside ambiance. So whether you rent a boat and launch from Akwa Marina in the morning on event day, or after stowing your boat at Weirs Beach – just head for the Akwa Marina Beach Bar.  The hours are 11:30 AM to 9:00 PM and the food is farm fresh, from ‘right down the road.’
