Summer Social 2016 – The Wrap!

IMG_3595On June 16th fun was had by all at the 2nd Annual NYC Summer Social. Over 40 boats signed up for the day with lots of happy participants. Of those registered roughly half were Cruisers who took part in David George’s P3C (Poems-Places & Pictures) on-water scavenger hunt. The remaining boats were split about evenly for the Pursuit race with half sailing spinnaker and half white sail.

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 once again, our fine Commodore and Vice Commodore didn’t disappoint in the Opti Challenge.

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 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.
