2019 May: Letter from the Commodore

Greetings to SYC Sailors and Friends:

Sailing activities are starting soon at SYC.   I know, it takes a lot of work to get the boat ready for it’s first splash of the summer,  yet it will all be worth it all when the boat’s in the water, you are relaxed, listening to the wind in the sails and the splash on the hulls.   It’s the greatest moment of all!

The plans for the Clubhouse are still ongoing but will be well worth the wait to get into our own place.  Meanwhile, the finishing details of our summer’s schedule are almost complete so we can enjoy our great summer ahead.  Wednesday night Racing begins on May 15 so get your team ready for that first sail. Sailing School classes are filling up fast for those who are interested in learning some new skills.  Check the website for event details and a link to our Sailing classes. Most of all, block out some time for yourselves to sail and let’s have some fun this summer.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 18 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm for the Annual Open House at Saylorville Lake Marina.  Plan to spend the day with us. There will be vendors and lunch provided by the Marina. SYC and SYCSS will each have a booth so stop by and say Hi.  Bring your friends and introduce them to us. SYC will be providing yummy Root Beer Floats; you won’t want to miss them. There will be powerboat rides on the new Syntex Marina boats and sailboat rides on both small and larger boats.  This is a good way to introduce your friends to what is available at our Club, School and Marina. Let them see why we love hanging out with our friends at the Lake.

We need volunteers as greeters, to make root beer floats or take newbies sailing.  More details will come as we get closer to the event. Let me know if you can help;  we need YOU! More details will follow as we approach the event. Most of all, bring your friends who show interest in sailing.  Plan to stay for the final drawing and very special Closing Ceremony. It’s going to be a great day to kick off our Sailing Season.  Let me know if you can volunteer either 9:00 am - noon; or Noon – 4:00 pm. After the event, let’s get on our boats and sail the rest of the evening until sunset.

Contact me at commodore@saylorvilleyachtclub.org to sign up to volunteer or to ask questions or make comments.  I love hearing from you!
