2017 Summer Social Recap

On June 24th fun was had by all at the 3rd Annual NYC Summer Social. Once again we had a robust turnout for the Pursuit Races both spinnaker and white sail and of course our jaunty cruising fleet on David George’s again brilliant on water Scavenger Hunt.

The day was a huge success! The wind and weather cooperated and everyone had a fantastic time. The objective of the day was to simply get as many members as possible out to have some fun on the water and then some good old club camaraderie afterword. There were several vendors on hand, and literally dozens of draw prizes. As always, the Ice Cream truck was a crowd favourite and this year we had 6 massage therapists in attendance doing fee massages to our weary crowd.

We would like to once again thank all of our great sponsors for their support to our club. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and also to the many volunteers and our great staff who worked hard to make the day a great success. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you. We look forward to seeing everyone out again next year which will of course be even bigger and better.
