The 2016 Sailing Season Is Fast Approaching!

The dock committee has reached out to previous members that have docked boats at the club to create a tentative list of who will be returning to their slips.  Last week  mailings went out to all members for  membership dues and dock fees.  You can write a check and mail the dues back. In addition, this year we are excited to introduce a fast and convenient way to pay your MYC dues and fees through a secure online payment service.  If you would like to use this service you can click HERE

Dockers,
Don’t let the great skiing weather fool you.  Dock fees are due at the end of this month. Don’t delay.  In addition, we have put together a document that outlines the minimum docking standards for mooring a boat at the club.  Docking


2015 White Rocks Race Results are In!

Sailors were met with a beautiful Sunday morning that was unseasonably temperate with a building wind out of the south.  The wind crossed over into the 10+ knot range as the mixed fleet rounded the rocks and then continued to build.  Many smiles were observed over the toe-rails that were in the water. Complete Results can be found HERE.

Open class winner:  Wild Bill skippered by Bill Pyle

Ensign class winner: Zonker skippered by Colin Irish

Laser class winner: Andy Miller


4th Annual Dinghy Free For All – Saturday 09/26/15

This will be the 4th running of the Dinghy Free for All regatta sponsored by Lewis Boat Shop and Ensign Spars. If you have not sailed in the FFA before, it is certainly a regatta you cannot miss. The general idea is that all kinds of dinghys are mixed on one start and race course and, more importantly, most stuffy regatta formalities are left ashore. In an effort to make this the biggest and best Dinghy Free for All ever, as well as set the precedent for years to come, we are getting organized early this year with hopes that we will have at least 40 boats!
