CHECK OUT THE YACHTING YARNS NEWSLETTERS
(The I.L.Y.C. Social Events)
One of the best parts of becoming a member of the Indian Lake Yacht Club might just be the social events that highlight the season.
As if the sailing isn't enough, there is the Interlake sailors' steak dinner that usually begins the season social scene, the Highlanders' BBQ chicken dinners, theme dinners such as an Hawaiian Luau, the Cruiser sailors' Low Country Seafood Boil, and music and dancing under the pavilion. On quiet Friday nights, we might informally gather in the pavilion to share snacks, roast some marshmallows over the hearth fire and share a sailor's tall tale or a joke or two.
The Cruiser boats have a Summer Solstice "raft out" where we sail out together, tie off to each other and share a favorite dish and grill whatever we bring as a main dish.
Join us this September as we celebrate Oktoberfest
with a live Polka Band.
Friday nights we have a"pot-luck" dinner in the clubhouse where some of the best cooks in the club bring assorted dishes for everyone to savor.
It's more than just a place to go sailing...
it's a family gathering as well.
Our opening day event, that was scheduled for May 9th, has been canceled. It was my hope that this would be a nice kick-off event to both our sailing and social seasons. We had planned, in addition to the normal workday and skippers’ meetings, a local and highly recommended food truck to provide lunch and adult beverages for your enjoyment. We also planned to have several able-bodied individuals available to help step masts and get boats in the water for anyone needing assistance. Sadly, given the moratorium on organizing events for groups exceeding 10 persons, the Trustees felt that we had no choice but to cancel this event.
We still need to get the club ready for the season but hope to coordinate this job in smaller groups. As always, Jim Kohler will post a list of the jobs that need to be completed in the clubhouse and the locker room. It is my hope that individual members or families (small groups), as they are at the club in the next few weeks, will take on one or two of the items on the list and scratch them off as they are completed. In this way, we can get the tasks completed while not infringing on the social distancing policies that are in effect. Thanks in advance for your help.
In terms of future events at the club, both social and sailing related, some have been canceled, and others we are taking it week by week, keeping a keen eye on the Governor’s restrictions. The Inland-20 Spring regatta has been canceled. The decision as to the future social events and the Jr. Sailing camp, currently not allowed by the restrictions, will be made as we get closer to their respective dates.
Club racing is also something that we will keep discussing and decide as to whether/when we can start the season. The current thought is that we can have racing and still comply with the social distancing restrictions. The committee boat and race tender will be splashed very soon. This conversation is ongoing, stay tuned.
