FROM THE REAR
Hello all, it’s your Rear Commodore once again. July has arrived and we are into our prime boating season. Summer arrived and with it warmer temperatures. A lot of great boating days ahead.
There is a boating activity planned for this month. We will be headed to Detroit Beach Boat Club the weekend of July 19th thru July 21st. Come by boat or car. We always have a good time visiting DBBC. I hope to see you there.
It’s also time to plan your I-LYA Regatta trip next month. The regatta runs from August 7th through August 11th. WRYCC always has a great showing at the regatta and I hope that 2019 will continue this trend. The pre-regatta trip starts on Friday August 2nd with a trip to Middle Bass Island where we will be staying at the Middle Bass Island Yacht Club prior to heading to the Bay.
My feeling is that every member should experience the regatta at least once. It is a chance for our members to compete with and mingle with the members of other clubs who are members of I-LYA. It is a great experience and I look forward to seeing you there. And, lest we forget our own P/C Bob Lang is the I-LYA Rear Commodore.
Lastly, just a personal opinion here. With the current high water levels we are experienceing at this time we as boaters like the high waters. However the high water levels are a concern to property owners along the shores. I feel that we as boaters need to be considerate of those property owners along the waterways and watch our wakes. Many marina docks are awash amd we just need to be careful.
Until next month, let’s do some boating.
