Marina Seamanship Race
On May 4th the Del Mar Marina and Sailing Center will conduct the Seamanship Race. The race will be set up as a practical for the students of the Advanced Seamanship class but anyone in the Santa Margarita Yacht Club is invited. While not a fully sanctioned race, it will be a fun filled afternoon. The Skippers meeting will be in the Del Mar Classroom at 10:00 and the race starts at 12:00. The race is free and open to anyone in the SMYC. Attached is the SMYC race course that we will use. See you there!
4th OF JULY
The Fireworks are coming and that means the Del Mar Marina and SMYC will hold their Annual Cook-Out at the Marina.
SMYC Members, Marina Slip Holders, Marina Patrons and their Guests are invited to come down and enjoy the Burgers, Dogs, Sausages and Cola with all the condiments provided (paper products are also included) ALL FREE.
What we need are VOLUNTEERS to help on the 4th. After a day on the water or on the beach come to the Marina to watch the Fireworks and /or just come to eat and go elsewhere to watch the fireworks. Our VOL UNTEERS are needed to help set up (like putting out colas, cups knives, forks, spoons, napkins, plates and all the goodies, and making sure the supply bins and bun bowls are never empty. Our Master Burger Flipper, Bill T, also needs a couple of able assistants.
And now for the best part of the Day, and this warrants a separate Paragraph, is the clean up. The more VOL UNTEERS, the faster the job goes.
The cooking starts a 5:00 PM. Let us know what you can volunteer for, pick one and come and help out. The Del Mar Marina supplies the tables, chairs and awnings, and please remember that this a long work day for the Marina staff so the VOLUNTEERS are a big part of the day.
Even if you are not available to help out please try to come out and enjoy the day.
All we ask is that you bring a side dish to add to our GREAT DISH TABLE to feed about 15 guests.
Let us know,
4th of July Committee Marybeth and Bill Thayer (We are in the Directory)
Greetings Shipmates!!! This is my initial Fleet Captain's "Fleet Communique" for the 2014 SMYC Summer Cruise.
DUTY OFFICER WATCH ROOSTER NOW AVAILABLE FOR SIGN UPS
The Duty Officer List is posted, and can be accessed on the SMYC Web page under Member Information.
Please look at the watch list and sign up for a day or two. The watches are on Saturdays from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. If everyone signs up for just one day we can easily fill the rooster.
Watch Duty Expectations
The duty officers are very important to the club. They provide a welcome to people around the marina and information about our club, which often leads to new memberships.
As duty officer of the day, you are responsible for opening up the clubhouse at 10:00am. (You will be able to get the key from the marina office.)
As the Watch Captain, you will hoist the club burgees and U.S flag. (The duty watch notebook shows flag positions.) You will also keep a record on a Duty Officer sheet in the notebook telling what transpires during the day.
If you have free time, you can help keep the clubhouse tidy and clean.
At closing time, 2:00pm, you fold all flags, store and put everything in clubhouse, and lock the door.
Remember it is important that you are social with any visitors and help with any information that is requested.
Thank you for taking time to support the club.
If you have any questions, please contact Scott Krefft at (951) 699-1459.
