THIS FRIDAY, A BLUE MOON F@5!
  
Here’s Steve Moore’s announcement for a Tie-Dyed, Summer Solstice Friday at Five, but the basic drill is always the same for our famous Fridays at Five:  Come on down to your Club to see your friends, relax on the deck, and if you can, bring an appetizer to share!


THIS WEEKEND: THE ANACORTES CRUISE! 
 
Welcome all to Cap Sante Boat Haven in Anacortes June 29, 30 & July 1st.
 
Click Here for a great event announcement for you!
Now, more details:  Friday evening we will have appetizers and socializing on the dock. Please bring an appetizer to share and the beverage of your choice.  Saturday is your day to explore Anacortes or just relax on your boat. (Did you know Cap Sante has bicycles available to use?)  Saturday evening we’ll meet at Anthony’s for happy hour and then back to the docks for a taco bar buffet; and Sunday morning you'll wake up to (or shortly thereafter have) Grand Marnier French Toast and Mimosas. 
 
This is a great way to have a fun time!
 
Your sponsors are Mike Crawford & Mary Burns from the M&M and Joe & Carol Young from Steel Blue Kiss.
 
Please let Joe & Carol Young know if you are interested in going at steelbluekiss@gmail.com or call 739-4796.


FIRST SUMMER SOLSTICE RACE THIS FRIDAY 6/29, 6PM:
 
The theme:  “Tie Dye”.  Prizes will be awarded for everything but 1st place!  After the race, social festivities including a “Bring Your Own” open BBQ Grill and shared Potluck sides.  There will be more BYC Summer Solstice Races July 13th, July 27th, Aug 10th and Aug 24th .
 
[HELP WANTED: We may still need some more volunteers to help with this event, with  race committee, future themes and social planning.  Please, contact Jonathan Knowles, jon@latitude48north.com or 360-303-5465]  --- Jonathan Knowles, Fleet Captain


YOUTH SAILING CLASSES FILLING...GET YOUR REGISTRATIONS IN
 
The first youth sailing classes started June 25 and we have reached a total of 100 registrations so far.  The registrations for the first two weeks have been light, but the third session (July 9-13) is sold out!  

There are still lots of spaces available in the later sessions, so tell all your friends and neighbors with children between 8 and 18 to look into the program.  We are especially low in the registrations for the Opti/Laser/FJ racing camps which we hoped would interest more advanced sailors.  These classes are scheduled between 1 PM to 5 PM to accommodate youth who are working or don't like to get up early in the morning! --- Arne Ahlen, Jr. Sailing Fleet Captain


BOARD EXTENDS "FREE $5.00 OFFER"!
 
At last week's Board meeting, your Board extended, until further notice, the ability for you to get $5 dollars credit for every $100 dollars you put toward your credit balance. Your $100 dollars must be received by our assistant treasurer Mike Welsh in the form of cash or check. When you make a $100 deposit and create a credit balance an additional $5 will be added to your account. You must deposit a full $100 dollars in order to get the $5 dollars additional credit. Paying with cash helps us with our bottom line, keeping our money in our club rather than paying credit card fees. Once you have established a credit balance you no longer need to worry about paying your nightly tab before you leave, it will simply be deducted from your balance. A notice will be sent to you once your account is low, at a zero balance, or you owe money because the credit has been fully used.
 
Please take advantage of this opportunity to help your club while receiving a benefit at the same time. --- Michele Bodtke, Rear Commodore & Treasurer 


HELP WITH THE BUCCANEER CRUISE PLANNING…

Call in' all ye mateys!  Ahoy, me n' me Captain James Santosuosso are lookin' fer volunteers to help us plan this years Buccaneer's Adventure Cruise 8/18 & 8/19.  We have a meetin' planned for this comin' Monday, July 2nd at 6pm on the deck of the BYC.  Thar'all be some light grub 'n drinks for yer pleasure served up at th' meetin'.

Please contact us if you have any questions. --- Angie Santosuosso, 360-319-7863 Jim 360-927-4844 or Angie's email: thetolsmas@yahoo.com


WHY NOT BRING IN A NEW MEMBER?

The Board reminds us that an active membership makes a more enjoyable Club. A strong membership base diversifies interests and broadens social and educational opportunities, benefits for all of us. A larger membership spreads the financial burden of each individual member.

The message here: more members make the Club more interesting, and one that is sustained by more of us. With that said, YOU can help: reach out to those we know and get them involved in our BYC.

Do you know someone you should ask to join the club? Now is the time as summer gets into full swing. Of course, their dues are pro-rated no matter when they join.

Another incentive: The benefit of our social activities. (A reminder: a non-member can be a visitor in the club is limited to six times per year, and visitors many only attend one major function (Commodore's Picnic, Commodore's Ball, etc.) in a year.

So, if you have a friend that likes to come to the club, or enjoys cruising at our events, they need to be a Member!  [You can read the details behind the Yearbook’s “Policies” tab, page 2, Paragraph G.]

Please pledge to recruit a new member, and if you have questions or would like to help with the membership committee, contact me (msbodtke@gmail.com).
THANKS!  --- Michele Bodtke, Rear Commodore 

SAILING FLEET NEWS:

[Hey, Editors: I'm not sure if Jon Knowles or anyone will submit something regarding the Etchells regatta.  If they do great!  If not, it looks like they got 8 races off 5 on Saturday before being blown off the water by the front that came through, and 3 more races Sunday.  Dave Steffan and Callipygian ended up in 1st place with Tom Malone's Salsipuedes and Blaine Pedlow on Hurrah tied for second. ]

This weekend, Saturday, we'll be joining up with the Corinthian Yacht Club for the Jack and Jill Race.  9am Skippers meeting at gate 3.  The WOW Regatta is coming up quickly too!  --- Bart Maupin, Sail Fleet Captain
