September has come and gone and now we enter October season.  October is the month the “Dream Catcher” gets stored away for the winter.  It feels like a changing of the guard. Put away the flip flops, shorts and tee shirts and enter the boots, levi’s and jackets, instead of the  beach we have the back yard bonfires and the land yacht instead of the boat. There is always  alot of things going on in the October season. Many fall themed festivals,  football games and campfires to keep us warm for the cool crisp nights.

For September Lady Janice and I  had a busy month. Which really every month is a busy month. First West River had their Labor Day cruise to Algonac. This year we rented a pontoon boat and visited the North Channel Yacht Club, just a beautiful marina and grounds, first class all the way.  Lake St. Clair did kick up her heels though, but the “Dream Catcher” did just fine. She may be small but she’s a tough old bird. Lady Janice and I have taken many long distance trips and she always brought us home safe. We also attended Wyandotte’s Commodore reception and Sunseekers Diamond Jack 3 hour cruise on the Detroit River. On the way back we had pizza delivered. How Cool is that, pizza delivered traveling on the river.

West River has a busy October coming up, Commodore Ball, Captain Rick’s Cruise on the Portifino, and our membership meeting, so Lady Janice and I are hoping to see everyone there.

Until next time, Smooth Sailing, Good Friends, Good Times.

October is here, and it’s time to think about putting our boats away. Where did the boating season go? It seems like I just put the boat in the water.

We had 17 days with above average temperatures in September, and most of those days were above average by 15 degrees.  The average temperature for September is 78F on the 1st and 67F at the end of the month.  The Lake Erie water level was down 4” for the month of September.   It is currently +15 above the long-term monthly September average, and they are projecting -4 change by this time in October.

Lady Laura and I went back down to Put-In-Bay recently.  Sadly, the warm weather has the green algae in full bloom; the whole western basin is covered in green.

That is all for now!  See you at the next meeting.

AYC Delegate



It seems like the rain just never stops, but the flowers, shrubs and grass are loving it….me though, not so much!
I have attended all 2017 AYC Delegate’s Meetings, except May, as my son had surgery late that afternoon. All flyers of the various events and information provided by AYC and the various AYC Clubs have been emailed monthly to WRYCC members listed on our 2017 roster.
AYC requests that we provide this information to our membership, so emailing the flyers gives you flexibility to download flyers monthly, on a timely basis, and read or print the events or information of interest to you. I try to keep these in order by dates and encourage you to take part in these events and to read the miscellaneous information provided for your use.
Please keep in mind that the Opening of the Island in Grosse Ile is June 9-11 and a flyer of events for the various local clubs for this weekend is included with the May flyers. Hopefully, you will be attending some of the festivities for this event.
Don’t forget to check out the flyer for the August 9-13 I-LYA Powerboat Regatta in Put-In-Bay, if you will be attending.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
