This Week at LYC

8 Jul
Electrical power to the clubhouse and docks has been restored and progress is being made to the sewer upgrade.  We are hopeful that this will be complete in the next week or so.  Meanwhile, we have the porta potties. But hey, let’s do something!! 
Tuesday July 9 is Fergburgs!!  First burgers come off the grill at 5:30 p.m. and the last at 7:00 p.m.  Bring a dish to share if you wish.  $6.00 per burger with proceeds to the sailing school.
Wednesday July 10 continues the “Hell or High Water” sailboat racing series.  Watch for the announcement from race coordinator, Commodore Tibbits.
Thursday July 11 is the annual flotilla to Manitowoc.  Last year there were 8 boats that made the trip:

four from LYC (Gary Ferguson, Les Kaines, Dale Fitch, and Tim Tibbits), three boats from Harborview  and one guy in a 30′ cigarette boat that heard about the flotilla and came over from Big Rapids to join the fleet.
We plan on an 8:00 a.m. departure from Ludington Thursday 7/11, returning Sunday 7/14. The Manitowac Municipal Marina gives us a discounted rate (I think 10%) and makes sure to stick us all together at one end of the marina. They have been super accommodating in years past. The Manitowac Yacht Club has invited us to their Thursday Happy Hour and regular Friday dinner. Most of us will attend both of those functions. And wander into town afterwards.  We coordinate the flotilla with the Manitowoc Sub Fest which is a big street celebration that takes place in front of the Museum. So there is a lot to do in town. Would love to have as many boats as possible join in the flotilla. Additional questions can be directed to Tim Tibbits or Gary Ferguson.
Friday July 12 is Cocktails at the Club starting about 5:00 p.m.  Bring an appetizer to share if you wish and see who wades in.
Saturday July 13 was scheduled to be a potluck dinner (the Flotilla potluck).  I will send out another email later in the week if this looks like it may occur.
Thanks for everyone’s continued patience.
