On behalf of the Flag Officers, Board of Directors, Committees, and Staff, welcome back to another great season of fun at the Surf City Yacht Club.  The 2014 season has many great things in store, but first, a shout-out to those who made it possible.  Since de-commissioning last October, more people than you can possibly imagine have been hard at work to make certain that this summer ranks as one of the best yet, as well as getting the physical facilities in tip-top shape.  Accordingly, I would like to give my heart-felt thanks to all of the many volunteers, committees, staff, and Board members who have given generously of their time and talents to help make certain that Summer 2014 will rank among the best yet.  Speaking for myself, I can say without hesitation that each and every Surf City Yacht Club summer has left me with great memories and warm feelings that will last a lifetime.  It is my goal to ensure that this summer will be no different, except perhaps to be even better.  In service of this goal, we have planned and are ready to deliver a full schedule of fun and exciting activities for both adults and children.  Some of what is planned is new, and much is old.  One goal is to help keep the Yacht Club busy and used almost every day of the summer.  Our plans include, just to name a few examples, waterfront activities ranging from bay kids to swimming to a wide breadth of sailing classes; adult sailing classes for adults who want to learn how to sail or who just need a refresher; weekend and other races and regattas, including the popular “tarnished trophy” races; an exciting Juniors program; a varied and balanced social schedule that includes something for everyone, including a few concerts; our new-this-summer Friday night “Commodore’s cookouts;” and the return by popular demand of Sunday sunset jams.  Please, come and enjoy as many of these activities as you are able.  Try something you haven’t tried before.  If you haven’t sailed, then take a lesson.  If you’ve sailed but haven’t raced, then try racing.  If you’ve never gone to a Saturday night social, then come to a social.  And if you’ve never volunteered at a regatta or a party, then by all means, volunteer.  It’s the best way I know to meet people and become a part of the Club.  And finally, don’t forget to tell your friends and neighbors about LBI’s best-kept secret.  We are always ready to welcome new members to the SCYC family.


Best wishes for another great SCYC Summer!
