Happy 2016 and 50th Anniversary!

POYC 50

This special year marks the 50th anniversary of the club charter which was drafted and incorporated in September 1966.

Thanks to the vision and perseverance of the founders, the club was formed and nurtured through infancy until it got on its feet a few years later. The revival, as it became known, was in 1971. It was decided to continue under the original charter of 1966, so this is officially our 50th Anniversary.

For those who are passionate about sailing, the 1966 birth of POYC should be hailed as the greatest thing that happened around here!

Let’s get out on the lake and make this a year our founders would be proud of!

November Telltale 2015

We just completed our Fall workparty this weekend, thanks to all who came out and helped get the club ready for winter. We had about 10 people and 7 kinds of chili, all of which went down easy. We were lucky to have great weather to work in.

This was an eventful year, with a lot of Capital projects: We redid the septic system, replumbed the head and entire waterline, bought a chase boat and added the Arrrr Lounge. We also added a router for Wifi at the dock and generally spruced the place up. Next year we would like to add a boat lift to the lower yard, which has been a long time dream to help people work on their boats. Thanks to all the officers and members for their hard work this year!

We elected a new slate of Officers for 2016:

Rob Hatcher – Commodore
Bill Miller – Vice Commodore
Alan Cannon – Purser
Doug Roberts – Racing Chair
Gary Guss – Scribe
Steve Stahl – Yardmaster
Frank & Carol Kersting – Social Chair

Don’t forget to attend our Christmas party on December 5th, 6:30PM at Cambridge Market for $25/person..

Details will be coming soon on the Commodores reception in January.
