Pirates Plunder October 22nd and 23rd.


Race around the Three Islands of the Caribarren! This is the One for Rum Loyal to Fun! The last regatta of the year.

See the Fall Color and experience the Lake the way it’s meant to be sailed on a 9.5 mile cruise that leaves you feeling like you’ve been somewhere and done something! Be ready to leave the dock at HIGH NOON and plunder the islands. Camp overnight if you dare!

Sunday we run again and loot what the others may have missed!

This is one you’ll remember for sure…

POYC 50th – Message from the Commodore


A group of sailors sport a range of POYC shirts from years gone by. The POYC First 50 years celebration was a funtastic event that was attended by more than forty members! Frank and Carol Kersting threw down a most memorable event that was highlighted by Alan and Denese Janes performing live after an excellent lasagna dinner. The bonfire was welcome on the chilly evening that saw a reunion of many members we haven’t seen in a while!

We look forward to the next 50 years sailing on the beautiful Barren River Reservoir!

Commodore Rob “Dred Pyrate” Hatcher

POYC 50th Gala Call for Volunteers!


Fellow POYC mates,

Our “POYC First Fifty Years” celebration for the club is set for Saturday, October 8, and is part of the Great Minnow Race weekend activities. The board voted to have this celebration at our pavilion on the ‘beautiful Barren’ to celebrate the reason why we even exist: the lake and sailing!  Plan to join us for dinner, toasting, and dancing under the stars, and most importantly, fellowship.

The Kerstings have agreed to organize this event.  They will need, however, your help to make this event a success.  They are requesting volunteers to help on a ‘POYC First Fifty’ committee.  The committee members will help with the event, primarily set-up, serving and clean up.  For newer members, this is an excellent opportunity to become involved in your club.  Please call Carol or Frank at 270-996-8317.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone at the POYC yard on Oct. 8.  To help with this event, give Carol or Frank a call: 270-996-8317.
