Friday Night Social: Picnic & Bonfire Tonight!

Friday, June 10

Hello Sailors,

We are still not sharing food just yet, but we can certainly each bring our own picnic fixings and then, following the picnic, we will go to the firepit for a marshmallow roast.

I will bring the marshmallows and if you have sticks bring them.
Looking forward to seeing you there at 5:30 p.m.

Stay safe,
Bonita, your Commodore

The club grounds at FYC are exceptional. This is an excellent, quiet place for safely distanced family picnics and sailing. The club atmosphere is congenial and friendly with over 75 members and mooring for over 50 sailboats. Amenities include a long fixed dock, floating docks, rolling lawns, washrooms, a fire pit, dining pavilion, and loads of space on the hard to work on your boat.
In addition to the dock system there are two ramps for launching and recovering your sailboat, a mooring field to house your larger sailboat on the water away from critters (sailboats up to 26 feet with retractable keels are welcome), and building a personal dock is also an option. There are storage racks for kayaks and canoes, tenders to get to and from your larger sailboat, and a motorized safety boat to use if needed.
