Can you check all of the following?

Clear Lake Yacht Club Registration done ___

Dock In                                                            ___

Lifts In                                                             ___

Boats In                                                           ___

If you can’t check them all, fear not, you are not alone.  As of today, I can only check the first two……hoping to check one or two more by the weekend, but I’m not holding my breath.  Everyone’s been scrambling to squeeze what is normally a month or two of lake preparation work into about 3 weeks……..and it’s not always pretty…….but the show must go on.

MEMORIAL DAY REGATTA… this weekend for those of you lucky enough to check all those boxes.  Look for back-to-back races on Saturday.  If you have forgotten the racing schedule, you can check the website……..or you can read the rest of this sentence………Saturday at 9:30 a.m. it’s MCs, Xs and M17s…………Saturday at 2:00 p.m. it’s Es, Cs and Hobies………….Sunday at 10:00 a.m. it’s all fleets except Es.

CLYC BOARD MEETING………is this Sunday at 1:00 p.m., according to the events calendar………I assume it’s at the Yacht Club, but I’m not sure.

FIRST YACHT CLUB PARTY OF THE SEASON…… Saturday, June 2, starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Compound. As most of you know, the Compound is a euphemism for three north shore neighbors (that would be one Oltrogge family surrounded by two Tesar families) with addresses at roughly 700 North Shore Drive.  By the way, in keeping with tradition, Social Members kick off the party season by bringing hor d’oeuvres.  So, if you can’t make this party, you will be missing out on what are historically the best eats of the season.

FRIDAY EVENING SOCIALS………..Julie Lundberg and Rebecca Nyhus are making sure we don’t lose track of our Yacht Club and Sailing School friends and acquaintances this summer.  They are organizing Friday Evening Socials at the Yacht Club a couple Fridays each month during June, July and August for casual get togethers.  A flyer is attached to this newsletter with more details.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK……..”I cannot not sail.”  [E.B. White]

May you have fair winds and following seas,
