 Frostbiting Outlook: Upgraded from No Way to Uncertain

The dry sailing area still looks like a frozen tundra, but warmer days are ahead! So let's play it by ear for this Sunday, and wait and see. You never know when a well-placed solar flare will strike. Stay warm and thirsty my friends, and look up Marblehead Frostbite on Facebook for more up to date information.

BYC Member Cruise Challenge

So you have a boat and you try to use it as often as possible each and every summer.  You belong to the BYC and you hopefully use your club for more than a way to get back and forth to your boat!  If you don’t you are really missing out.  And if your boat is large enough to cruise on (and it doesn’t have to be that big) you have often said to yourself: one of these days I’m going to go on the BYC Cruise. 

If this sounds at all familiar to you then now is the time for you to start planning.

OK, now that I have your attention, I want you to sit down and think about joining the BYC Cruise this summer.  Your Cruise Committee has been working for well over a month on putting together a great cruise for you this summer.  We are heading East or as we old timers would say we are “Goin Down East”!  Where the hell did the expression Down East ever come from you are saying to yourself?  Easy answer: If you are a sailor and you are heading East in the summer months, the winds are generally from the West.  Thus when sailing East the wind is usually on your back and thus you are sailing downwind!  Of course when headed home the wind will be on your nose, but that is another story and why God invented the Iron Jenny!  But I digress!

Look, it doesn’t make any difference to us whether you are in a 25 foot cuddy cabin outboard or in a 50 foot luxury sailboat.  If you join us you will be more than welcome and you will have a great time.  We have well experienced Cruisers like Past Commodore Pete Conway who has been Cruising with the BYC for well over 40 years and relatively new cruisers like this year’s Cruise Chairmen, Richard & Marilyn Snyder! 

I have been cruising with the BYC for over 35 years and I have never had a bad time.  We used to take our kids along and it is important to know that kids & grandkids are always welcome!

I’ll make you a deal: If you sign up and Cruise with us this summer and at the end of the cruise you come up to me and say, “I really didn’t enjoy the cruise”, I’ll buy you and your significant other the best dinner you can find on the BYC Menu!

Come on………sign up (see below)………….you know you really want to do it and you have nothing to lose!

Mike Mentuck 


 

Cruise Naming Party this Friday @7PM

 
The itinerary is done, boat launch dates are being scheduled and the sea ice might melt. There is no doubt the 2015 BYC cruise will be an epic event.  Such an event needs a proper name and that will be your job on Friday.  Come on down, grab some hors d'oeuvres, have a drink from the back bar and come up with your best cruise names.  
 
The cruise is going from Boothbay to SW Harbor 8/8-8/15 with stops in Rockland, Belfast and Castine.  Early registrants include sail and power, slow and fast.  All boats welcome and if you don't have a boat there are places to charter one.
 
Make your reservations today and signup on the website at:
 
Cruise Committee
