This week at the Club

It was a Great Father’s Day at your Club.

 

It wasn’t a great day as far as weather went on Father’s Day but the Lobster Bake was a huge success. Nearly 90 Dads and family members enjoyed a great meal at the club.

 

And so it begins:

Saturday Morning Ideal 18 Beginners’ classes are underway. This program is for beginners or sailors who are unfamiliar with the Ideal 18s. The program involves both some classroom training as well as on the water training.  Any adult member may participate.  Taught by club members, this class teaches the fundamentals of sailing, as well as how to handle the Ideal 18s.  After a few weeks of classes and practice, you may get certified to be able to sail the Ideals on your own. Classes are held Saturday mornings from 9 to 12 and run through July. As a reminder, if you didn’t make a class yet, don’t worry, members can jump in any time.

 

Ladies Sailing has also begun and will continue every Tuesday evening at 6pm at the Club. No experience necessary.  There is always room to jump onboard and enjoy a peaceful night on the water.  We can’t guarantee favorable winds, but we can provide libations. 

 

Thursday is Grill Night — Grab your favorite recipes and head to the club. Grill nights will take place every Thursday night through the end of June, then Tuesdays and Thursdays for the remainder of the summer. Enjoy a nice meal on the deck or the beach, and watch the terrific sunset.

Palm Sunday & Egg Hunt

A packed house enjoyed a scrumptious brunch with a seemingly endless array of foods prepared by Chef Nick and Anthony. We had plenty of photo ops with the Easter Bunny and all the kids got to run off some energy with the egg hunt on the beach.

Family Halloween Dinner

Last Saturday Mother Nature gave us some wild weather, rain, strong winds and a very high tide that was dangerously close to the basement. Thankfully all turned out fine. The weather did however postpone the Family Halloween Party to Sunday afternoon, seems like a change for the better because we had a record turnout. Chef Nick put out some great treats at the buffet. Kids and adults came in some creative costumes; it was all treats, no tricks and a great time. Thanks to Shana Ciniski and Jana Bachner for arranging and supervising great activities for the kids. Sammy Maynard took over the emcee duties and coached the kids in a fun toilet paper mummy contest.  Nice work all!!

 

2018 Commodore’s Ball

Commodore’s Ball a huge success.

We had a grand time last Saturday and we celebrated the Commodore’s Ball. The room and all the guests were dressed in their finery. The band kept us entertained. Chef Nick dished up a sumptuous meal. Jenna and the restaurant staff provided exquisite service to our table and at the bar. We enjoyed hand rolled cigars on deck. Yes, it was on purpose that Charlie Walsh’s jacket actually matched the table cloths. Thanks to all for a wonderful evening and congratulations to Commodore Dickson for piloting the club through calm waters and a few storms over the last two years.
