PYC Commodore's Cup!
Participate in this year's Commodore's Cup,
By Rich Wells, s/v Serendipity II
It is hard to believe that July is almost over and fall is not that far around the corner. It has been an enjoyable summer so far at PYC with plenty of sailing, racing, multiple youth sailing activities, and the ever-popular PYC parties. There has also been a lot of activity with improvements around the club. The new entrance gate became operational on July 15th. Sunset dock is sitting on the dry land and awaits dismantling and removal in the coming months. And lastly, most of the remaining debris has been removed following the high water earlier this spring. All in all the sailing season has shaped up nicely to offer another wonderful year of sailing and activities for PYC members.
As we approach the end of the summer Commodore’s Cup is right around the corner on Labor Day Weekend, September 4th – 6th. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever with competitive racing, great food, and of course plenty of beer as well as two tents to house the activities for the weekend and live music on Saturday night. Please see the Commodore’s Cup link on perryyachtclub.com and PYCnews.com for information on the Notice of Race, registration, camping, and other information.
