The boating season has started and here are a couple of tips to get us off to a good start.

Don’t forget that your boat is a big investment and should be protected with good sturdy dock lines. In the past, when a storm kicks up some boats are damaged (as well as the Club’s slips) because dock lines were just not the proper length or size for the boat or the shackles weren’t secured, or worse yet, weren’t even used.

Another reminder, the automated radio check is on channel 27. Don’t clutter up the airwaves or get a scolding from the Coast Guard asking for a radio check on channel 16. SSYC is part of the cooperative effort in the Milwaukee Bay automated radio check system.

HELP STOP CLUTTER ON CHANNEL 16

    • Tune your VHF radio to channel 27
    • Conduct a radio check as you normally would
    • Upon releasing your mic, the system will replay your message (allowing you to hear how you sound

 

As part of our “Clean Marina” efforts the waste drain oil tank is now in a spill reservoir. Please don’t put any litter in the containment tank. Also ONLY engine oil should be put in the white drain oil tank. There is also a 55 gallon drum for old oil filters and a separate 55 gallon drum for discarded anti-freeze. Let’s all make sure to use proper disposal practices.

 

The SSYC 100th Anniversary Book will soon be in your hands. It has finally been “put to bed” and is at the printer. The plan is to have the 36 page book available at the Review of the Fleet on June 7th. Every member will receive a copy of the book.

Sailing and Racing

SailboatsIf 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.
