What’s New at TNYC?

BBQ in Middle Arm is a go!

The forecast is looking good for the afternoon, so the TNYC BBQ in Middle Arm is going ahead today starting at 4:00 pm. Please bring your own food for BBQing, including meat, side dishes and drinks. The TNYC Social Committee will provide the BBQ sauce, plates, glasses, cutlery, napkins and dessert. We hope to see you there!

Lobster Boil- This Saturday!

Don’t forget! Our annual Lobster Boil will be held Saturday, June 14th starting at 5:00. We’ve got a huge crowd coming and good weather in the forecast, so break out your lobster bib and tools and prepare for a great kick-off to the season.

Spring Operations Update

It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter… but the sailing season is almost here!

Wayne Stokes did a great job of organizing a large crew of volunteers to repair and refurbish the floating docks for Pier 1. These are now ready to be put back in to place, and on Saturday, May 3 we will be installing these docks and all the floating finger piers. Our club is totally volunteer-run, and we need as many members as possible to come out to help with this important task. If the tees don’t get installed, we will have nowhere to put our boats. Which brings us to  the second big event-

LIFT-IN! We will be lifting over two days- May 17 and 18 (Saturday and Sunday of the May long weekend), with masts to be stepped on Sunday as well. Please remember that we pay for the cranes by the hour, so it is important that all boat owners be ready and on hand for when their turn arrives. We also need many hands to ensure that things move smoothly, so please contribute as much time as you can. As in years past, the Social Committee will be providing lunch on Saturday. We are also planning our first social event for early in the season, so stay tuned for the details.
