Wounded Warriors Events this Friday and Saturday 7/31 & 8/1

The BYC is hosting our Annual Wounded Warriors Event this weekend, Friday, July 31st and Saturday, August 1st.  The tent is going up on Thursday and will remain in the lot until Monday.  Please note that the Gazebo will be CLOSED Friday night and will RE-OPEN on Saturday at approximately 5pm or thereabouts.  We thank you for your understanding as we play hosts to this most important and rewarding event.


Opti New England Championships next week 8/4 - 8/6

The Future of Sailing is Here - Opti New Englands at Sail Salem!

The BYC RC is proud to be helping Sail Salem run the Opti New England Championship at Sail Salem on Tuesday-Thursday, August 4-6. There's still some room on the RC if you'd like to be part of a great event and contribute to the future of racing. Shorter races, shorter sailors, but never any shortage of fun, I guarantee. Email me at bycrace@bostonyachtclub.net if you'd like to join us. 

Karen Tenenbaum, Race Committee Chair


Kids Movie Night at BYC this Friday 7/31

Calling all Kids!

This Friday we will have movie night in the yardarm.  We will have sitters on hand. Parents can drop kids off and enjoy dining in the clubhouse (call for reservations) while kids have a blast in the yardarm. This week the movie starts at 7pm. Parents can give the sitters your phone number so they can text you if there is an issue. We ask that you stay on the BYC property. This week's film is  HOME (animated and PG). Please call the front desk for reservations so we know how many sitters we will need. 781-631-3100  See you around the clubhouse!

Dana Williams, Social Chair


Comedy Night 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. This is being offered to BYC members first and then we will open it to the public. Tickets are $40 and the show will start around 8pm. This is for the show only. Regular dinner will be available in the Clubhouse as well as the Gazebo. Please make your  reservations immediately as we will open this to the public next week and we are sure this will be a sold out event. 781-631-3100 

Kids Carnival 8/23

On Sunday August 23rd we will be turning the tent into a Carnival. Kids of all ages 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

Laurie Dragonas, Boston Yacht Club Sailing Heals Committee


Island Night 8/22
 
On Saturday night August 22nd, we are having a Island Night under the tent. Chef Alan will be creating his usual fantastic and delicious food for us. There will be dancing to island music. The menu and more information will be available shortly. Please make your reservations early as it really helps us to know ahead of time how many people are coming. 781-631-3100

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.

Race Committee Opportunities - Race Week is Here!

The Granddaddy of them all, Marblehead Race Week, started with Junior Race Week from 7/20-7/22 (Monday-Wednesday), then “Senior” Race Week, or NOODS, 7/23-7/26 (Thursday-Sunday). That’s a lot of racing, so we’ll need a lot of hands on deck and it’s a great time to get involved. The few openings remaining range from mark boat (really would like some more patrol boat folks!) to flags to recorder. Email me at bycrace@bostonyachtclub.net or Don at dbmiller50@aol.com for more information or better yet, just sign up and be a part of this momentous event. The earlier you do, the better chance you'll have for Race Week/NOOD swag, like RC shirts from sponsor Helly Hansen and Mt. Gay hats, not that you need to bribed!

Nominating Committee looking for candidates
 
The Nominating Committee is still looking for candidates to serve on the Long Range Planning Committee.  Interested candidates are encouraged to drop off a letter at the front desk of the Club, attention Carl Edwards, Nominating Committee Chair. All letters can also be e-mailed to Carledwards.mhd@gmail.com  The letter should contain which position you are seeking and a brief description of your qualifications.  All candidates will be interviewed by August 31st.

House Reminders

It is hard to believe, but we do have members who struggle to make their minimums, even during the summer! The club is in full swing and people should be getting down enjoying the water views and summer breezes more often – sitting on the porch, sipping refreshing beverages and enjoying some fine food.

Understandably, some of you live further away and it’s tough to come down for a Grilled Romaine Salad, Tuna Tartar, Surf & Turf or Baked Haddock after work. But it’s worth the effort to come when you can!

A quick note to all of you last-minute-minimum-spenders: There are 5 ½ glorious summer weeks before the period ends. How about making a reservation this weekend? Or next? While our staff is very good, it can be a more relaxing experience for you if you aren’t trying to come at the same time as everyone else.

So give your friends a call, suggest that you meet up at the BYC. Boat owners – keep your land locked friends in mind and invite them out! Let’s use our club to the fullest!

Pet Reminder:   Please note that pets are not allowed in the dining areas of the club, including the Gazebo Area.  If you have your pet with you, they must be over the white line (closest to the hoist) so as to not interfere with those dining. (Licensed Service Dogs are ok).  Please do not leave your pets in your cars while on property, especially during the summer months.

As always if you have suggestions as you spend time at your club house and grounds, please get in touch house@bostonyachtclub.net

Then there's the big Kahuna, Marblehead Race Week, which starts with Junior Race Week from 7/20-7/22 (Monday-Wednesday), and continues with “Senior” Race Week, or NOODS, 7/23-7/26 (Thursday-Sunday).

Tasks range from mark boat to flags to recorder, and everything in between. Email me at bycrace@bostonyachtclub.net or Don at dbmiller50@aol.com for more information or better yet, go ahead and sign up, even if you think we already have your contact info.

The Jolly Roger will fly from the yard arm next to the BYC and Sailing Heals burgees as several children from a Dana Farber brain tumor support group get to play on the ocean and talk and act like pirates for a day.

Black Tie Dinner and Auction 10/24:  The BYC will host several more Sailing Heals events in September and we’ll top off the season with a Black Tie Dinner and Auction on October 24. There are many ways our BYC members can get involved.

We are still seeking lunch sponsors for all of our August and September healing sails and welcome many and all contributions for the raffle and auction.
