June was a busy month, P/C Steve Jakubik and myself had the pleasure to represent WRYCC at GIYC Commodore’s Ball, Cooley Canal Yacht Club Commodore Reception, participated in the $1.98 beauty contest, joined Ford Yacht Club at Toledo Beach Marina for a weekend of fun and attended Swan Boat Club Commodore’s Ball.
This weekend we have our first event, we are anchoring our at the Cross Dyke for a great time on the water. If you would like to come for the day or over night you are more than welcome to join us. We have 4 boats joining in on the fun as of now, some are staying for the day and others are staying overnight. This fun outing is July 3rd & 4th. You can reach us on Channel 79, vessels that will be there: Mi Buddy, Dog House, Dream Catcher & Island Pursuit. We have plenty of snacks and beverages if you even want to pop over on the dinghy.
We will not be having a July membership meeting, however I believe concerts on the lawn have started back up. Maybe we can go listen to some good music and have some fun and maybe even recruit a few new members to join our family.
In the past we have gone to Middle Bass Island prior to the I-LYA powerboat regatta, if anyone is interested in doing this still please let me know. I will be on South Bass Island for the Sail Regatta, but would be more than happy to spend a day of fun with all of you. You can go by boat or take a ferry to the island, lodging at the marina, cabins or camping in the campground.
Please don’t forget to sign up for the I-LYA Powerboat Regatta, I can not emphasize how much fun this event is. For many, many years we have been a tough competition for all the clubs. For years we have brought home 1st place wins in volunteering, we use to bring home 1st place wins in participation (I would like to see us make a come back). There are activities and events for the entire family to enjoy. Let’s make this year just as special if not more!
WE have taken so many flags that I couldn’t even get them all in the photo. Let’s bring home the win!!!
