⛵ Willie Clayton and Mike Groves will be managing the club this year.
Willie and Mike, both now widowed, met in 2015 at the Ocala Boat Club in Ocala Florida, where they both live and enjoy boating. Willie, and her former husband Don, managed Deep Creek Lake Yacht Club at Turkey Neck over many different years until Don's passing in 2013. Willie came back a couple times after that, managing by herself. Mike is a past Commodore of the Ocala Boat Club from 2017-2019. He is a Vietnam Veteran and retired after 27 years from the Marine Corps Reserve as a Master Gunnery Sargent. Mike's full time job was with the City of Ocala, where he worked as a Civil Engineer and retired after 43 years. He was instrumental in designing and overseeing the expansion of the City’s water and sewer systems.
