    Spring has Sprung! It’s April!

    April 23, 2016

    Thank goodness winter is over! BCYC has had a very active season and much appreciation is in order. First, to our South Events Coordinator, Madi Yates, thank you for all the time and effort you put into helping make this winter’s events in Florida the best ever. Those who hosted along the way, the Falks, Smiths, Rosses, Stones, Collins, Wilsons, Masons, Jo Rys and John O., Jamie, Chris S., Pam L., and Laurie C., orchestrated so many interesting and just plain fun events that it seems we were celebrating all winter long! While up north, our Social Director, Pamela Budesheim, lined up hosts for many events that were exciting, entertaining and enjoyable. Hosts for these events were the Murphys, Edmunds, Budesheims, Jamie Ritter, Mary Bowie,  and Leslie Goodwin and Steve Bacon. We certainly thank you so much!

    Although we’ve been teased several times, I believe Spring has arrived! Many snowbirds are enroute north where flowers and trees are blooming and leaves are appearing. One of our most spectacular events of the year will be our Change of Watch Ball on May 7. Our volunteers have promised to exceed the high standards of the inaugural Spring Ball held last year. Seems impossible, but I’m betting on them to succeed! They have selected Oyster Cove as our venue, with access by land and sea, and a scrumptious menu including Prime Rib and Salmon previously announced to members. We will have Mike Lange and the Tiki Barbarians returning for us to dance the night away. All has been coordinated by Mary Ross and the committee and registration is closing soon, April 28, so please register now!

    With warmer weather approaching, members are looking forward to cruising the waters of our Chesapeake Bay. Our Fleet Captain, Ben Wilson, and Cruise Director, Madi Yates, have been busy planning our cruises. BCYC cruises are always filled with laughter, food and drink, and fun beginning Memorial Day, May 28, with a land/sea weekend near Rock Hall (see Sea Events list on homepage) and continuing north for our Annual Cruise Week. The next land/sea event will be the infamous Lobster Feast at the Stone’s on June 18. Shorter cruises are planned throughout the summer during Fourth of July weekend, the Log Canoe Races, and Friendship Day at CYC.  In the fall, the Vagabond cruise, planned by Tom Bernhart and Richard Sanger, will begin Labor Day weekend in Oxford as a land/sea event. It will then head south in the Chesapeake for almost two weeks.

    We are still looking for a few more hosts, so if you haven’t volunteered yet, let me be the first to invite you to contact Madi or Pamela and join with our many members to help insure a fantastic and lively year of events with our friends in BCYC.

        "It's all about the people!"

BCYC is virtually the best group of boaters, both sail and power, on the Chesapeake! Known as Bak-Yakkers to our Members, we enjoy each others company and know how to have fun. We gather throughout the year at a variety of land and sea events, planned and hosted by our members.  No clubhouse to maintain, no high-priced dues, just great people mingling on or near the water. 

If this intrigues you contact our Membership Chair at the link below and consider joining us at a future event shown on the Calendar and Events Page.  Details about membership can be found on the Membership page.
