This group organizes, plans and implements water related activities that do not directly involve racing. These activities may include Club Cruises to other yacht clubs, raft-ups, trips to boat shows, etc. See what's on tap for this year..
This group organizes the club regattas, acts as judges and directs all matters connected with handling the regattas. They also distribute information about the racing events of the season. They also sponsor social and educational events such as the Annual Awards Dinner and Safety at Sea Seminars and the Fiesta Race on Labor Day. This Committee also appoints members to the Protest Committee who make decisions when protests arise during a race. Our racing programs include PHRF offshore, plus J/24 and JY15 one designs. New fleets are welcome. We sponsor a variety of events, from Wednesday night around the buoys, to weekend offshore, and multi-day regattas. Click here for more details.
The club sponsors a variety of social events during the year. With the Board of Governors’ approval, social events are planned, publicized and implemented by club members. In the year 2000, the following parties were held: New Year’s Eve, Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, Lobsterfest, Dock Party, Octoberfest, Pre-Thanksgiving Cocktail Party, and Holiday/Trim-a-Tree Party. Other committees also sponsor social events (i.e. spring tailgate party sponsored by the yachting committee.) There are also socials that follow club events such as after the Change of Watch, Blessing of the Fleet, and semi-annual meetings. Visit this year's social calendar.
