The 2021 Season
The 2020 sailing season of Covid-19 was not what everyone expected nor wanted, but we dealt with it as best we could. It hampered our social events, but we were able to safely have a few events and have a great time
in spite of Covid-19.
We hope to have a full season of activities when the club opens up again. Something positive, something to look forward to for 2021.
(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" round June 20th where we sail out together, tie off to each other and share a favorite dish and whatever we bring as a main dish. In 2020, we were able to watch the St. Mary of the Woods fireworks after dinner!
In September we might celebrate with an Oktoberfest and live Polka Band or have a "Pirates Night Outing". Just just never know.
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.
The Annual General Meeting was held at the shelter house at 4:00 P.M. and the Commodore's Ball followed with an excellent dinner by the Flying Pepper Cantina Restaurant and dinner music by the talented Mr. Byrd Manring.
This wrapped up another fine season of sailing and awards to many as MC'd by Race Chair, Pat Tynan during the 2020 year of Covid (take a drink) You had to be there to understand that one. The New Commodore, Tim Fate, will take the helm on November 1st.
