The Isles Yacht Club, 1780 W. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda, hosted the annual change of watch for the Punta Gorda Mariners Club. Mariners from the club started in 2000 in the kitchen of Alex and Eileen Hughes. The group was brought together by their love of boating in the local area. Eighteen years later, mariners gathered to show appreciation to those that served in the past and present during the changing of the watch.
