The Kitchen Evolves (and Revolves)

In January, when Phil Devlin set out to find a new Executive Chef, he was looking for a creative star who could also command and keep the kitchen running efficiently. It needed a leader who could purchase well, schedule well and forge a strong team. We wanted someone from the restaurant world who understood the direction of American restaurant dining. We were enthused because we thought we found all that in Chef Guara. Unfortunately, the whole task plus some member concern on the direction of his creative expression was too much for Guara and he resigned in early April, but not wanting to leave us in the lurch, he didn't walk out the door.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That's a translation of a famous French proverb. Why now? Why here? Please join me in welcoming back the guy who knows what we want in the kitchen and what we want coming out of the kitchen. Join me in welcoming Phil Devlin back as Executive Chef of the BYC! I'm looking forward to a fun and tasty Summer!

RC Training Day May 10 at 12:30

Following the CPR course, the Race Committee will be holding a training session, starting at 12:30 at the Yardarm. We’ll deal with timing, recording, flags, instruments and patrol boat work, so the veterans can shake off the winter rust and the newbies can avoid baptism by fire.

Don’tmiss this opportunity to put into practice all the great stuff we learned at the Race Management Seminar!

BYC RC Spring Social-May 10 at 6:30

As if CPR and training were not enough, the day will be capped off with our ever-popular Race Committee Spring Social! All committee members, and anyone interested in joining RC are invited. If you also go to the CPR class and RC training, just imagine what a conversationalist you’ll be that night!


 
Attention Race Committee: Learn CPR, Become Certified
 
Unlike the Halifax, the Beringer does not require you or your crew to attend a Safety at Sea seminar, but it might not be a bad idea to at least learn and get certified in CPR,  and that especially goes for members of the Race Committee as well. We have two convenient options: 1) at the CYC on Sunday, May 4 at the CYC, details to follow, or 2) our own BYC course on May 10, 9-11 a.m. Sign up for the BYC course by contacting

Sue Bragdon, sbragdon@comcast.net. Space is limited to 20 students. Be safe! Get certified!
 

 
Casino Night at the BYC
 
On Friday May 30th, the BYC will be transformed into a casino with many gaming tables includingBlack jack, roulette and many more. There will be auction items and prizes for those who win the most chips.  Entry includes gaming and hors d'oeuvres.
 
This is a benefit for Sailing Heals. Mark your calendars and save the date! More details next week.
 
Dana Williams, Social Chair
 

Save the date for the Commodore's Ball 6/21
 
Please save the date!
The Commodores Ball will be on Saturday, June 21st under the tent.
The band Better Than Nothing will perform that evening
We hope to see you all there!

The Grey Lady - 2014 BYC Cruise

A lively group turned out last Friday for the 2014 cruise naming party.  In a very close vote the cruise has been named "The Grey Lady" to pay homage to Nantucket, the premier stop on the cruise.   It was also announced that the cruise dinner will be held at the Nantucket Anglers Club (a short walk from the Boat Basin) with thanks to PC Peter Conway for helping secure the reservation.  
 
 
 
As of today 18 boats have reservations at Hyannis and over 20 are expected in Nantucket.
 
Other highlights include an organized trip to see the Boston Pops in Hyannis and cocktails/dinner at the Beverly Yacht Club in Marion.  For members who have never done a BYC Cruise, but are close to thinking about it, there is still time to find a boat and make your reservations. Bareboat charters are possible for those without . A number of members have had good experience with: Swift Yacht Charters - call ASAP if you interested.  More website updates coming soon!

New cruisers welcome! 
 

 

Jr. Summer Sailing Registration Open!

The 2014 Jr. Summer Sailing Program registration is open!  Click here to signup online. The program will run from June 30-August 29th. Stay tuned for more information regarding registration! You can also email any questions to instructors@bostonyachtclub.net

July 18, 2014--Beringer Bowl Overnight Ocean Race—Reserve Your Slip Now!

Call Provincetown Marina at (508) 487-0571 pronto to reserve your slip or mooring, as the slips especially will not last! With Spring springing, there’s no time to lose, whether you are racing or otherwise intend to bring your boat down and join the fun the weekend of July 18-20. So call in your reservation now, before closing this email, and then relax! The longer you wait, the more likely the marina will be sold out, and you’ll be out of luck. The race itself will be in the same general format, with Racing, Cruising and OCS classes, and online registration will be up soon. The Post-Race party and awards will be held on July 19 at Waydowntown, a venue way closer to the marina, in the heart of downtown P-Town. More details to follow, but one thing's for sure, this will be a Beringer to remember, so don't be left behind, call now, operators are standing by!

In Memoriam: PC Don Humphreys

Called a legend by the Marblehead Reporter, our beloved Past Commodore Don Humphreys passed away this past Monday afternoon. Diagnosed with esophageal cancer just three weeks prior, Don lived a full life of 91 years.
 
Don joined the club in 1967 and was instrumental in helping the club survive financial hardship in the 70's, joining with others with a Life Membership investment. He served us as Commodore in 1987 and 1988 and then many years as a very active Club Historian. He fought hard to ensure that the club's artifacts be well accounted for and preserved.
 
Don's distinguished career began with enlistment in the Marine Corps the day after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor and included service at Guadalcanal -- one of the most famous and intense military campaigns of World War II. After the war he flew as a commercial pilot for 20 years and then went into business capitalizing on the innovative skate sharpening system that he invented and patented.
 
In addition to Don's consistent generosity to the BYC (he was one of our hotel room renovation sponsors last year), Don contributed broadly to the Marblehead that he loved. His most recent projects include the memorable celebration of the Centennial of Marine Corps Aviation in 2012 and the rehabilitation of Hammond Park on Commercial Street to honor Starling Burgess. Don was awarded the Marblehead Chamber of Commerce’s Rey Moulton Person of the Year honor in 2012.
 
Don lost his wife to cancer 19 years ago and then a year later met Lili Rowen. Lili. also a BYC member in her own right, and Don had a wonderful companionship over the last 18 years. Memorial services for Don will be at the BYC on April 29th with the time to be announced.

2013-2014 Frostbiting Final Results
 
The last week of Frostbiting was a bust due to the continued tough winter weather.  The results from 3/23 (click) are set in stone. 1st place for the season was won by the EYC Sonar skippered by Matt Hooks.  2nd place for the season and winner of the Fred Boulter trophy is the BYC Sonar sailed by both Tomas Hornos and Andrew Criezis.  Third place for the season goes to the BYC Sonar sailed by Tyler Doyle and Chris Boulter.  Huge Thanks to the Frostbiting Race Committee and Volunteers who brave the elements to run these races.
