From our Commodore

Dear WYC Members and Friends,

Spring has finally sprung in New England!  Summer will be here before we know it.

Thanks to all of you who have registered for membership, classes, moorings and rentals at the Yacht Club.  Hopefully, you have received an invoice and have, or are getting ready to, send in a payment.

If you have not already done so, please take a moment to register. The more advance notice we have for class registrations, the better we can prepare our staff schedule and facility for the season.

Memorial Day weekend, the board is looking for helpers for a building project at the club.  Last fall, we began a siding project.  If you have been past WYC this winter or spring, you may have noticed that the Batterson Room exterior looks new. We worked hard in the fall to complete that section.  We hope to make good progress on the “Big Room” side of the building, replacing siding and installing new windows.  You do NOT need construction experience to help out.  We will be happy to have folks come hold ladders, nails, lift boards, etc.  Please contact me or Ted Sherman or just show up on Saturday after 10 a.m. or most of the day Sunday and Monday with work gloves, if you want them!

Be sure to mark your calendar for the Blessing of the Fleet and Commodore’s BBQ on Sunday, June 28 beginning at 11 a.m.

All of us on the board and staff are getting excited for the upcoming summer and the start of the sailing season.

I look forward to seeing you soon!  Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
