FRIDAY JUNE 1- SUNDAY JUNE 3

Union Steam Ship Marina

The action starts this Friday with the Club Hosted Wine and Cheese in the Marina Tower at 2000. Followed by the traditional dock party.

Saturday begins with the Pancake Breakfast at 0830 followed by workshops on Traditional and new Line Whipping followed by Knot Tying. After lunch you will have a chance to review and practice CPR with manequins that will ensure you are doing your compressions correctly. Everyone can use some review and practice in this lifesaving skill. At 1500 we will be boat hopping. Each boat will host 2 other boat crews with appies and a chance to meet our members and talk “MacGregors”. Then get to visit 2 other boats. Each visit will only last 30 minutes. Bring your own drinks. After the Boat Hop we will begin our Potluck dinner at 1800 followed by a 50/50 draw and Door Prizes from our many partners.

Sunday starts with coffee and treats on the dock and then membersw will be off to further MacAdventures or heading home.

HIGHLIGHTS OF MAY CLUB NIGHT

For those who couldn’t make it, you missed Darry’s presentation BOAT BALANCE – How to sail a MacGregor. Almost a week long course stuffed into a 1 hour presentation that provided those in attendance enough information to practice for years to come. The presentation can be found under the RESOURCES TAB/DOWNLOADS/CLUB NIGHT PRESENTATIONS/MYCBC – BOAT BALANCE 2018. You can’t get this “MacGregor Specific” information anywhere else. Thanks Darry for the great presentation.

The MINUTES and 2018 CLUB CRUISE ITINERARIES can be found under the RESOURCES TAB/DOWNLOADS. Check them out for the details of the upcoming sailing season.

NEXT UP
BLAINE REGATTA
NEXT WEEKEND

Check out the details in the ITINERARIES and even if your boat isn’t ready to hit the water yet drop by and spend some time. You can hitch a ride on other member’s boats for the Saturday Safety Sail or the Sunday Regatta/Race or join in on the Potluck dinners Saturday and Sunday. If you are coming please post under the WATER MACTIVITIES TAB/CLUB CRUISES/BLAINE REGATTA drop down menus so we know who will be there.

Highlights of March Club Night

All the info you need to keep track of MYCBC activities can be found under the Resources Tab above. Look in the Downloads Folder for Club Night Minutes, Cruise Itineraries, Calendar of Events and More.

Another great Club Night happened on March 9. Thanks to the members who attended and all the great decisions they helped make. A Special thank you to Past Commodore and Education Officer Darry for the great presentation helping everyone with their UNDERSTANDING of WEATHER. His powerpoint presentation can be found under the Resources Tab/ Downloads/ Club Night Presentations.

Most of the comments on the new location at Ricky’s All Day Grill in Walnut Grove were positive. We still need to work out some details with our projector and screen but now we know what to expect. There will be one  more change for the April 13 Club Night. The restaurant closes at 9:00 (like the old ABC did) and it is important that we have all our bills paid and are out of the building by then. In order to ensure we get everything done the Meeting will now be starting at 6:00 followed by the presentation at 7:00 so we can be finished by 8:30. This should give us ample time for a few conversations, paying of bills and leaving by 9:00. Hopefully these new times will work for everyone and we can maintain the format of our Club Nights.

$400 in CASH PRIZES

To encourage Members to post their Sail Plans for Club Cruises as early as possible, the Club is offering a $10 Early Bird Prize to the first 10 members to post a sail plan for MacRendezvous, Commodore’s Cruise, Rear Commodore’s Cruise and Sucia Raft-Up. The Sail Plan must include the Location, Date and Time they are departing for the Cruise Destination, Tide Gate information and a plan for after the Cruise either returning or continuing on to other locations. The $10 prize will be awarded at the Cruise location to the first 10 members who posted their plans online. Only those members who posted their plans online and arrived at the Cruise are eligible for the prize.

It is hoped that the early posting of Sail Plans will encourage all our members, especially new members, to create their own sail plan or find other members to “buddy-boat” with.

The Club Cruises will be available under the Water MacTivities tab on Sunday December 3 at 1800 for members to begin posting their Sail Plans
