Change of Seasons

This year the Sea Cliff Yacht Club will celebrate “Change of Seasons” event this Saturday, November 4th marking the end of the summer season and the beginning of the winter season. The Flag Officers and Board of Governors would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to you and your family to attend. The gathering is scheduled for 1630 hours (that’s 4:30 for the landlubbers) with the Change of Season Ceremony to begin shortly thereafter. A reception with cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres will immediately follow. Anyone interested in attending may contact the Club office at 671-7374 or use the link below to reserve.

We will waste no time getting frostbite sailing going after Change of Seasons. It will take place every Sunday beginning November 5th weather permitting. Trap shooting starts on Saturdays on November 11th, and this hearty crew shoots no matter what the weather.

Wednesdays through the season, our Pub Menu is available in the Regatta Room. Stop in, play some pool, darts or shuffleboard, and enjoy a good meal and a beverage or two. The bar is open Friday from 3:00 PM and at noon on Saturday and Sunday.

We will be serving in the Club Dining Room on Friday with our ala Carte menu and a few specials. Sundays we will feature the pub menu served in the Club Dining Room from 1 pm. Please reserve early as we need to provision and staff properly.

Football season is here; enjoy a game, sip a drink and hang out with friends at your club. Order up some wings and enjoy a Sam Adams Boston Lager special during the games on Sunday.

Autumn is upon us and, once again, it is time to clean out your lockers and take your small boats home. This needs to be done by Change of Seasons, November 4, 2017. Any boats not removed will be considered abandoned and be disposed of or auctioned. There is no winter storage at the club. The racks need to be maintained and the locker room cleaned. Please cooperate and remove your personal items ASAP. Of course, if you are a frostbite sailor your lasers or sunfish may remain on the beach.

Our next Trivia Night is coming up quickly, Nov. 11 at 7:00 PM. Tim Hyland is the November host. Those of you may remember that last time Tim has a passion for the presidency and National Parks. This is not to say he may be going down the same path, as they say, “past performance is not a guarantee of future results”. New player and teams are always welcome.

ALIR Week Is Here!

Hello everyone – ALIR Week at Sea Cliff Yacht Club got off to a great start on Saturday with a terrific Rock The Dock party. On Monday, the Naval Academy midshipmen arrived on Wahoo, their Kerr 50. Unfortunately, the second Naval Academy boat, Apollo, had to stop in Westbrook, Ct for repairs so the crew has come down to Sea Cliff without the boat – for now. We’re certainly hoping they can make it to the start on Thursday.

Tuesday is the annual Middie Pig Roast BBQ. The grills will be hot and the membership is invited to bring their dinner down and meet the midshipmen from the Naval Academy and the US Merchant Marine Academy (Kings Point). There will be a special “colors” ceremony at sunset followed by a USNA vs USMMA Volleyball Challenge under the lights – thanks to Doug Oko’s VP Events.

We know that many will be at a swim meet but after that is over do be sure to stop down to welcome the midshipmen and wish them good luck in the ALIR.

Tomorrow we’ll have the results of the Volleyball Challenge and more tips on how you can experience ALIR Week.
