The organization for young professionals plans to keep most things status quo for the Naples institution, started in 1977 as a celebration for locals at the end of the winter tourist season.

The Great Dock Canoe Race will continue to launch from Crayton Cove, in front of DePasquale’s restaurant, and go three miles up and down the Gordon River. The race also will remain on the second Saturday of May. The event also will raise money for a local charity.
