MT DORA HAS BEAUTIFUL SPRING WEATHER AND A BUSTLING DOWNTOWN FILLED WITH SHOPS, RESTAURANTS AND MANY FESTIVALS WHICH YOU WILL CERTAINLY ENJOY ON YOUR VISIT. HOWEVER FOR EASE IN BOAT LAUNCH YU WILL WANT TO AVID THE BUSY DOWNTOWN AREA.

FOR EASIEST ACCESS TO THE LAUNCH AREA AT GILBERT PARK ENTER MT DORA FROM US #441 AT SR 46. AT THE INTERSECTION OF HIGHLAND ST ( STOP LIGHT) TURN LEFT (S) THEN GO TO LIBERTY STREET AND TURN RIGHT ( YOU SHOULD SEE MDYC REGATTA DIRECTIONALS) FOLLOW LIBERTY TO THE MT DORA LAUNCH AREA AT GILBERT PARK. YOU WILL BE GREETED BY OUR CHEERY AND HELPFUL "RAMP RATS" WHO WILL ASSIST IN GUIDING YOU AND KEEPING THE LAUNCH AREA FLOWING SMOOTHLY.

 CLICK ON THE VIEW IN GOOGLE MAPS" LINK BELOW. Or view this Printed map to right with multiple options.( please note from intersection of 441 and 46 it is only about 1/2 mile to Highland Street) 

 

It is a bit tricky to get around the one way streets and events in Mt Dora! Getting from Gilbert Park ( launch area) to the MDYC. The route highlighted on GOOGLE will NOT be accessible!  You will need to take either Tremain or Grandview up to FIFTH Ave and head left to downtown.Turn left at McDonald to MDYC. By the time Saturdays racing is complete there 'should' be some parking spaces opening up!. We will have a reserved lot at the First National Bank lot at 7th and Alexander next to the Post Office as overflow ( with signs) the Clubhouse is a few blocks to the South at Fourth and McDonald.

We will have directionals and folks to help you after the races!
