Training opportunity:
LYC is sponsoring a USCG Auxiliary class ” Suddenly in Command” on Sunday, July 8 beginning at Noon.  Cost will be $15 per person and will last a couple of hours. Please respond to this message if you wish to attend or call Gary Ferguson (231 690-3710) for further details. The course overview follows:

The captain becomes incapacitated or falls overboard; you purchase a new boat and step aboard for the first time. You are Suddenly In Command.  This boating safety primer is designed for those not generally at the helm, and will help you to “be prepared” with the basics in case of an emergency.

You will learn about your vessel, including nomenclature and operating principles including starting the engine. Also included are descriptions of what causes boating mishaps and how to minimize them, basic boat handling and what equipment should be on board.

Literature contains many horror stories about a passenger, who does not know how to start the engine or operate the radio, watching in horror as a strong wind blows the boat away faster than a captain who has fallen overboard can swim.

Misfortune occurs in seconds, and you have the rest of your life to be grateful that you knew what to do because you were prepared.

Wednesday Evening Race Schedule

25 Jun

The second Wednesday night race will be Wednesday, July 18th. This will be a regular Wednesday evening event (save for July 4 and 11). Notice of the race will be posted at LYC. The race is planned to start from the club or from the south pier, racing to the weather buoy west of the lighthouse, rounding the buoy (leaving it to starboard) and returning to the harbor. The course may be modified due to wind and weather conditions at the time.

Start will be at 6:00 PM per GPS time. Brief skipper’s meeting at 5:30 PM.

Please indicate your interest by signing the sheets posted on the bulletin board. Each skipper should enter the name of the boat and the boat manufacture or design. You can also indicate if you need or would accept additional crew. Make certain to enter your contact information so that the race committee can contact you in advance of the race.

If you don’t have a boat but would like to crew, there is also a “Crew Looking for a Ride” sign up posted at the club. Please sign, provide your phone and e-mail contact and indicate your experience level on the sign up form. We will try to match crew up to race entrants to accommodate as many of the skippers as possible.

This is supposed to be a fun even and an opportunity to blow some of the algae off the bottom of those boats, so please participate. If there is not adequate interest indicated on the sign- up sheets by noon on Wednesday, the event will be cancelled, so step up to the plate and sign up. Get out there and celebrate summer.

Because of July 4th and the Badger Flotilla, the next Wednesday night race will
be July 18th.
