LYC – 2018 On the Bay Programs

These programs are for club members 14 years and older. Club members from 14 – 17 must be accompanied by their parents.

Kayak & SUP program

All LYC members are welcome to join our Kayak and SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) group as we combine some exercise with a further education concerning our Bay and the ways to help improve the Bay’s health and condition – as well as our own!  Through a collaboration with the Save Barnegat Bay Team, we will enjoy two informative morning teach-ins before entering the lagoon on our water crafts for some further Bay knowledge and exercise.

In addition, there are currently two additional Kayak & SUP group events planned further in the summer – perhaps a nice paddle under the WPI bridge? Or a chance to explore some of the numerous canals and byways which branch from our Bay?  All Kayak and SUP events will begin at 9:00 am on the LYC porch.  The first 2018 SBB ECO Tour for the group is planned for Saturday July 14 at 9:00 am and the second is slated for the end of August. Looking forward to having fun, meeting new members and learning about our Bay as we get some exercise!  Further details will be posted on the LYC website and / or on the board. Cheers to a Healthy and Active year on the water!

Thursday Night Sunfish

Thursday Night Sunfish sessions will be held each Thursday evening weather permitting. Once again they will be coordinated by Dave Thompson.  Dave is one of LYC’s most accomplished sailors; he gladly shares his knowledge and enthusiasm.

Sessions will begin around 6:30 PM. Chalk Talks on sailing techniques will be conducted.  Sprint races will be held to practice sailing skills and awards will be given. Upon returning to the club participants will gather on the porch to briefly cover lessons learned.

Yes this is a terrific opportunity to begin or improve your Sunfish sailing skills, meet new members, enjoy the sunset over the bay and simply have a good time. Dave Thompson will be coordinating these sessions and if you have any questions / suggestions he can be reached at (908-216-1002).

Adult Learn to Sail Program

The 2018 Adult Learn to Sail Program will run five consecutive Saturdays from 10:00 to noon (weather permitting) from July 7 to August 4 and five consecutive Thursdays from July 5 to August 2. If there is a demand, or we lose days to severe weather we’ll extend the program further into August.

Weather permitting means no rain and winds less than 13 mph. If there is no wind we’ll go out under motor and practice steering with a tiller.

We’ll use Dave Powell’s Precision 21, and Stephen Hughes’ Com-Pac 27 – both relatively stable cruising style boats. Additional boats will be added if needed. Advance registration is required for each session to allow us to make sure there are enough boats and instructors to accommodate everyone. To register use the LYC website or contact Dave Powell at 941 685 9547 or davidspowell@hotmail.com, but please no later than the Thursday before for Saturday and no later than Tuesday for Thursday evening. This will allow us to make sure there enough boats and instructors.

This is a learn by doing program – we’ll be mostly on the water! David Powell will be coordinating these events and if you have any questions / suggestions he can be reached at (941-685-9547) or davidspowell@hotmail.com.

If you plan on participating during a given week, please complete the 2018 Adult Learn to Sail Program registration form via this link indicating a Thursday or Saturday session.
