Slip Committee –
It is great see so many boats in their slips taking advantage of the nice weather we had this past Holiday weekend. With the docks and slips in use, it is important that we maintain a safe environment for those using the docks and finger piers. If you are not yet in your slip, please be considerate to your slip neighbor who may be in theirs. Please put down wave boards and steps that encroach on the finger piers or face docks. This makes it unnecessarily difficult to negotiate the finger piers and can create trip and fall hazards for members and/or guests. If you are fortunate enough to already be in your slip, please keep the walkways of the docks and finger peers clear from shore power cords, water hoses and lines.
We have several members who will be enjoying their first season in a slip at SSYC. It is important for new slip holders and experienced slip holders to tie your boats up securely. Keep in mind slips have been repeatedly modified over many years by members. This practice continues today. Do not assume that hardware left by a previous slip holder can provide the secure attachment point for boats, lines, wave boards, steps, and ladders you are looking for. I have seen several instances of lifting eyes and bolts added to finger piers that are loose and/or missing fasteners. Please be diligent in your inspection of the attachment points you adopt or install for your boat, lines, waves boards, steps and ladders in your slip. Keep in mind that all construction done on the slips needs to be consistent with the SSYC slip license rules and conditions and the SSYC slip license both are available for reference through the SSYC.org website. If you have questions specific to slip modifications you would to make please direct them to me.
If you are interested in sailing, and more specifically racing, there are ample opportunities to join one of our racing fleets, or to crew on one of the boats in those fleets. The women's fleet races on Mondays, small boats race on Tuesdays. Big boats race on Wednesdays and Saturdays. And the double handed fleet races on Fridays.
You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here. And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.
SSYC offers sailing lessons and a year-round program for children ages 8 - 18. We offer a six-week series of lessons in Opti's, 420's and Lasers. Our juniors attend a number of regattas throughout the summer, and host one of thelargest regattas on Lake Michigan, the Kaszube Cup.
Click here to learn more about the Junior program, and here to find out more about the Kaszube Cup regatta.
The restaurant is open every Friday for lunch and dinner.
The Entertainment Committee hosts various parties, including:
St. Patrick's Day
Review of the Fleet
Change of Watch
New Year's Eve
and many other, less formal, events throughout the year.
