Waterford Yacht Club Newsletter – July 2023

Recent Events

Pub Crawl: What an event a; triple stop Clear Lake Shores crawl!  First: past commodore Mike and our favorite charcuterie planner, Tina Pantoja, opened their home to us with a delicious offering of wine and appetizers.  Next, we adjourned to the nearby Galveston Bay Brewery for an assortment of local craft beers.  Then, as the evening temperatures cooled, we walked across the street to Aspens, occupied much of the palapa, and enjoyed more cool beverages and live music.  As with all of the WYC events there was abundant chit-chat.  Thank you Soical Director Michelle who planned much of the event and photo bombed one of the pictures below; can you see her?  In total almost 40 members and guests participated.


On The Horizon

Margarita Extravaganza – Saturday July 29 7:00pm – 9:00: WYC will hold an icy cold adult beverage contest.  Bring your favorite margarita drink (and blender if needed) chips and dip will be provided in Pavilion B.  A nominal gift will be awarded to the winner – you be the judge.

Happy Hour – Saturday Aug 12 6:00pm – 8:00: Look for an Evite announcement regarding any social gathering in August.

Freeport Cruise – Friday Sept 1 to Monday Sept 4: WYC will go offshore (or the ICW) to Freeport Bridge Harbor Marina for the long weekend.  Boaters may want to be in Galveston on the Friday prior to or after the Saturday Freeport marina stay.  Or you may also choose to spend multiple nights at Bridge Harbor.  A group dinner for Saturday night is planned in Freeport where the club will provide appetizers and you’ll order dinner from the local restaurant.  Boaters need to make individual slip arrangements with the marina Harbormaster (979) 8242776. Participants who want to arrive by vehicle are welcome.  Please refer to the Evite which will be sent in August for more details.


Pancake Breakfast – Sunday Sept 10 9:00am – 11:00: Members will get their fill of flapjacks topped with berries, whipped cream and of course maple syrup.  Add a refreshing Mimosas you’ll have a great start to a lazy day.

Birthday Bash Pool Party – Saturday Sept 30 6:00pm to 9:00: Who would’ve thought that Waterford Yacht Club is still here after 24 years?  We’ll have a party at the marina pool to celebrate.  Look for an Evite with details and expect to dress casual.

Pirate Party – Saturday Oct 14 5:00pm – 8:00: Ahoy ye would be pirates.  Join your maties at the Railean Buccaneer Bar for some grub and grog.  Be the best dressed or most fearsome pirate and win valuable booty plus a fist full of gold doubloons.
