Educational is an important part of the Yachting Experience. Waterford Yacht Club gives members a chance to learn more about the maintenance and operation of their investment. Some of the presentations will help the member to be a better Yachtsman and feel more secure when operating his or her boat.
Waterford Yacht Club is in good condition for 2020. We have an experienced board of directors that will expand upon the many successful events of 2019. We’ll continue the Friday night “Happy Hour” socials and add more of the Sunday morning gatherings. At our January business meeting members voted for the new board, and also their favorite events. In response our new Social Director, Monique Henson, has filled the calendar with creative monthly Saturday parties. On the water events are also part of the WYC agenda. Weather permitting we’ll get to Freeport, Redfish Island, elsewhere on the bay and hopefully sponsor Regatta again.
Aside from keeping members engaged in social and boating activities, WYC has the other responsibilities. We need to conduct education events each year. Our new Rear Commodore, Daniel Knierien, will make each one both informative and hands-on. We also have a social responsibility to promote local charities with fund raiser events. Past events have been both big and small; we’ll look to bring a right sized charity event into 2020.
These great activities all require member support and volunteers. This is our club and will be as good as we make it. Please give Monique some support and volunteer to host with her an event. Speak up at any event about helping with the next one.
