Spectate Wednesday Night Racing from the water 9/2

 

I am inviting those BYC Members who would like to go out and catch the spirit of the our famous Wednesday Night Series to join me this coming Wednesday September 2nd (weather permitting of course) on the ELIZABETH M to go out and observe and sometimes harass the Wednesday Night Fleet.

I have some guests from the Wickford Yacht Club expected and already signed up along with some of our regular crew, but have room for the first 10 or so of you guys who would like to join us. . And….please bring along your own refreshments. The boat will provide ice, water, and tonic for all.

Departure from the BYC Docks at approximately 5:00 PM. Return hopefully ahead of the racers so you can grab a table and enjoy the Gazebo Menu.

Let me know if you would like to join us by e-mail (mikem@salvor.com) and remember:

First come first served of course!

Thanks,

Mike Mentuck

ONE Regatta 8/28 - 8/30

ONE is NOT the Loneliest Number

The next big event on the RC calendar is the venerable Offshore New England Championship, or the ONE as it is commonly known. The regatta runs from this Friday, August 28 through Sunday August 30. Last year there were 86 boats from around New England and beyond, including Dallas, TX. For a front row seat of the action, and bracelets for access to the post-race parties, sign up  for RC with Scheduler Don Miller now! We are looking for extra patrol boat folks, so the less experienced will be paired up with our super-duper designated trainers for the opportunity of a lifetime, I kid you not, plus the chance to use your newly developed skills later on for the Autumn races and earn even more drink tickets!

Karen Tenenbaum, RC Chair 


Waterfront Hours

Each year as the season winds down our crew of launch drivers dwindles as they depart for school. As we approach Labor Day which is late this year, all of our drivers will be gone by the Sept. 1.

Monday, August 31st thru Thursday, September 3rd          8:00am – 9:00pm

Friday, September 4th thru Sunday, September 6th           8:00am – 11:00pm

Monday, September 7th (Labor Day)                                 8:00am – 7:00pm

Fall Hours begin on Tuesday, September 8th.

House News

It's a Busy Weekend Ahead in the Dining Room

And so we are reaching the saddest end  of all minimum periods. But don’t let them fool you – summer isn’t over yet!

It may be hard to believe, after such a great summer, but there are some members who will be coming down because they haven’t spent their minimum yet!  I know, but I used to be part of these ranks back when I was living on the South Shore.

Please – Please -Please

Have patience this weekend. Minimum end is always busy.  When you factor in a nice summer weekend, it becomes extra busy. Don’t wait to make your reservations! Club management is planning ahead but we can only accommodate as many people as we have tables for.

Lucky for us – we have plenty more glorious days coming this fall, so we can all enjoy the club. (so don’t wait for Christmas-time to spend your minimum)

As always, be sure to let us know what you like and any wish list items for changes. House@bostonyachtlclub.net

Carol Arnold, House Committee

Parking during tent event this weekend

The tent will be going up in the parking lot today for the weekend, Friday 8/21 through Sunday 8/23 will be WHITE STICKER PARKING ONLY.  Please be patient as our lot attendants assist members and club guests with their parking needs. Friday will be particularly busy with the Ben Farrar Comedy Night Fundraiser.  Please plan accordingly, save on gas…carpool or walk down!

 


Comedy Night Friday 8/21

On Friday, August 21st we will have a comedy night under the tent. There will be 4 hilarious comedians to entertain us. This is a benefit for the Farrar family of Marblehead. Ben Farrar was about to graduate from Marblehead High this spring and then off to college. He was on a class trip in France where he had an awful accident. He dove into the sea and hit his head on the bottom and was immediately paralyzed. He was rushed to a hospital in Nice where he was operated on and his family joined him for 6 weeks of recovery before being med-flighted to Mass General. He is now at Spaulding for rehab. Their house needs major renovations before Ben will be able to come home. We hope to help out with this monumental undertaking.
 
Tickets are $40 and the show will start around 8pm. This is for the show only. Member charge bar and no food will be served under the tent, but inside the Clubhouse dining is available as well as at the gazebo for members.  If you know of any non-members that would like to attend, tickets are available at Marblehead Savings Bank on Atlantic Avenue at the reception desk. 

Island Night Saturday 8/22 - cancelled....but wait not so fast!
 

The scheduled Caribbean Night for this Saturday 8/22 has been cancelled, however the band must play on!!  Venture down to the club on Saturday night to listen (and dance!) to the sights and sounds of the Marc Stone/Josh Paxton duo out at the gazebo.  Check them out at: http://www.marcstonemusic.com

 

 

 


Kids Carnival Sunday 8/23

On Sunday August 23rd we will be turning the tent into a Carnival. Kids of all ages (young and old) are invited to attend. Come see Commodore Barry get dunked in the dunk tank! (Who else would you like to see get dunked?)   Try out the Velcro wall!  Or bounce on the SHARK bounce! Or the super water slide! There will be games and activities as well as snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy! The fun starts at 12 and will be available until 5. Please call the front desk to let us know you are coming!! 781-631-3100

Sailing Heals seeks generous sponsorships

We are looking for a few members to sponsor lunch for a healing sail on Friday September 11. Lunch sponsorships help defray the cost of feeding Sailing Heals’ VIP guests, Host Captains and volunteers. Even if you are unavailable to participate during a Sailing Heals event, this is an excellent way to contribute and be involved.

We hosted our first Pirates and Princesses Treasure Hunt Adventure in Marblehead harbor on August 6. Thanks to all the many lunch sponsors, volunteers, Host Captains, and friends from around the harbor that made this amazing day possible. The 9 families who participated will “treasure” their memories forever!

Please look for Sailing Heals volunteers out at the gazebo on Wednesdays, selling raffle tickets for the Labor Day Sailing Heals Regatta 50/50 Raffle.  All raffle sales must be in cash or check made out to Sailing Heals.

BYC RC Takes Sail Salem By Storm!

The RC took its show on the road last week and simply crushed it running the Opti Green Line at the USODA New England Championships, getting in a dozen races over three days, while getting the kids back to safety in plenty of time for Tuesday’s thunderstorms. We showed over 40 fledgling sailors how to compete with good sportsmanship and have fun, and for some it was their last regatta as a Greenie. It was truly a wonderful thing to be able to help Sail Salem run this national level event, and we look forward to making an even bigger impact in the future!

As an organization a bit larger than the BYC likes to say, “Membership has privileges”.   The discounted fuel price for members: Gas - $3.08; Diesel - $2.50.   This will change as our costs change but will hold through the weekend. 

Rick Fishkin, Waterfront Committee Chair


Parking

Parking continues to be a concern due to the constraints of the available spaces in our Old Town location. Because we want to maximize the space for you, the members of our club, we have some basic rules that are spelled out in both the house rules (year book and online) and with the letter sent out every year when you get your parking sticker. Your sticker belongs only to you as a member and it is to be affixed to your car. You may not lend it to someone else to bring their car in.

Each member gets a maximum of 2 stickers. If you have a family with grown children, they do not have the right to park in the lot unless they are driving your car with the sticker affixed to the window. A great solution to this is to have them become members on their 21st birthday which will qualify them for their own sticker (and perhaps save you some money with their own member charge).

We aren’t heartless. If you have special needs, give a call to the club and make your request ahead of time. For example, if you have an elderly guest joining you for lunch that needs a handicap parking space we can arrange to provide a parking pass for the time they are at the club with you. You should also try to ride together so we don't have an extra car taking another member's space in the lot. Decisions made at the gate will be based on the rule and not the exception.

Heads up: as a service to our members, we will start towing sticker-less cars that are parked in our lot.

Carol Arnold, House Committee Chair

House Reminders

The summer heat is here. Some might say Finally!, others might say Oh Dear. Maybe the difference is in where you are! I checked the weather forecast between Marblehead and several miles inland. In addition to cooling ocean breezes, Marblehead should be consistently 4 degrees cooler through to the weekend. Make your reservations or simply take your chances and come to the club for lunch or dinner. The Dining Deck is open with our full menu and the Gazebo outdoor kitchen is open Friday (5-dusk) and Saturday & Sunday (noon until dusk) with lighter fare. 

Don't forget to come down tonight to join in with the Wednesday Night Racing Revelry at the Gazebo or head inside for a somewhat quieter atmosphere.   Food for thought: do you have ideas on how to maximize our outdoor seating in the Gazebo area? Send your ideas to house@bostonyachtclub.net.

Waterfront News

If you are currently on the waiting list for a kayak rack, paddleboard rack, storage locker, inflatable on the rack or a dry sailing spot, please contact Ken Breen ( dockmaster@bostonyachtclub.net ).  You can view the lists on the BYC webpage under the waterfront tab. We will be assigning spaces at the end of the week.

On behalf of Sailing Heals, the BYC is hosting a special kid’s healing sail on Aug. 6.  I would like to borrow child size life jackets (size infant and up) for the day. I am sure many members have them either from their own children or grandchildren. Please email me (rickfishkin@gmail.com)  if you have one or more that I may borrow to help make this a special day for deserving kids. I will make arrangements to get them for the day and return them after the event.  Thank you.

Rick Fishkin, Waterfront Committee Chair


Get the word out about your event. The BYC eNews is published every Wednesday by the BYC Webmaster. Members are invited to send their contributions to webmaster@bostonyachtclub.net no later than Tuesday evening for inclusion in that week's issue. A draft eNews is circulated to all BYC officers and committees for their review and input
