Dear BLYC Friends and Sailors,

I hope this message finds you well. I  would like to start by extending a thank you to Patrick as Past Commodore for his strong leadership and dedication to the club. Our club is strong based on his and others' efforts.

I have been monitoring other area clubs and consulting with board members in regard to the pandemic. The general plan is to move forward with a normal racing schedule. The social calendar is in question at this time. Some off-lake regattas have been cancelled and others are up in the air. In some ways we are fortunate as we do not have a designated yacht club location to either open or close.

There has been some question regarding dues with the social calendar up in the air. At this point, we are keeping the dues at the same level as last year. If the social season is severely limited, we will consider refunds or carry over of funds into 2021. Please contact me if this is a concern.

Thank you again to our judging crew including Ed and Pat Impens, Dennis Lynch, and Patti and Denny Donohoe. Let’s hope for some strong and consistent winds this year!

The board this year includes:

                Commodore                         Tim Lynch

                Vice Commodore                Chris Impens      

                Fleet Captain                       Marc Deriaz

                Treasurer                             Kurt Petrie

                Secretary                              Michelle Hills

                Social Chair                          Ben & Yvonne Richter

Ellen Kmecak is once again heading up the sailing school with Cory Busch. Riley Smith and Gwen Busch are the instructors with a modified racing schedule to begin in early July. This is an extremely important part of our club as we introduce the next generation to competitive sailing! We plan to have both intermediate Opti and X-boat fleets this year. More updates to come as we have more details.

Early bird savings are available until May 23rd.
