The Blues Bottle Band - BYC Winter Nights

Friday, October 5th

BYC Winter Nights welcomes the Blues Bottle Band to the BYC Lounge this Friday, October 5 at 8:00 pm.

Why are they called the Blues Bottle Band? No idea. But I do know that I like a good five piece blues band in a cool setting like the bar at the BYC.

The jammin' starts at 8:00 pm so why not get here a little early and get in a nice sunset and a cocktail beforehand.

Winter Nights have arrived!

August Dinner Meeting is August 18 (Viva Mexico!)

August 18, 2018

July is past us and that means it's dinner season once again! This month's Member dinner will be on Saturday, August 18 and will have a cruising theme. That can only mean one thing: Mexican food! Everybody loves cruising and eating in Mexico. Our Guest Speakers will be Amanda Witherell and Brian Twitchell who have just recently returned to the BYC after cruising for many years including a long stay in New Zealand. They will share their stories and insight.

CANCELED Competition at BYC on July 4th Design/Build/Race

July 4th 3:00 - 5:00

It seems that the enthusiasm for rowing around the marina in a leaky, flimsy homemade boat in cold water is less than I was expecting. Nonexistent comes to mind. Therefore, we will be postponing the Team America Boating Competition until 2019. This will give us an opportunity to reflect on who we are as Americans and how we want to be remembered as patriots.

See you at barbecue. Mark Bird BYC Rear Commodore
