A Note From The Commodore - 5/3/19

It is almost time to re-open the club for the 2019 boating season!  I cannot wait!

We had a very strong turnout for our two Club Work Days. I missed the second but was able to make the first. Thank you, WRYC membership, for the energy you put into our Club! We had it all ready in time for Flag Raising with a newly stained deck, trimmed bushes, cleared road gutters, a graded driveway, removal of unsafe playground equipment, clean walls and windows, and more! Please see our Buildings & Grounds Report below for the full report. I would also like to relay a special thanks from Bill Perrin to the team who removed the unsightly overgrown bush full of thorns on the entry drive! Suzanne Hudson and John Singleton finally cut it down, and Gary Hermanson used his tractor to remove roots so it will never come back.

Fleet Captain Scott Titus is leading the charge to ready our fleet for summer.  He will be calling for volunteers to help. He has already submitted a plea for help servicing both keep boats. Please contact him if you can help 804-854-3582!

Please do not forget that we will be continuing to offer Adult Sailing classes on Saturdays, racing on Sundays, and of course Summer Sailing Camp. There are lots of ways to get on the water at WRYC! Let Scott know how you are interested in participating, and he can help you, your family, and your friends enjoy the beautiful waters of the Ware River and Mobjack Bay.

Beyond boating, there are several events planned for this summer. The annual Anchor-on-the-Ware committee is working furiously to ensure we have another great event this year on July 20th. If you would like to help with preparations, please talk to Brownie Bartley. The July 4thevent actually occurs on July 4ththis year, and there should be a great show at dusk!

I look forward to seeing you at the Club!
