NEXT EVENT – March 18th LYC Chili Cook-Off **This Saturday

Get your chili ideas ready for the Chili Cook-Off. Be at the docks around 5 pm to get set up and get your chili warm for the tasting. The last year’s winners are pictured here. We had a good group of chili’s last year so it will be competitive and big deal if you can take first prize. You can see here Mike is defending his win last year. $5 to eat chili unless you cook some and enter on behalf of your membership crew. Always a great event. See you Saturday.

EVENT WRAP UP – March 10th Happy Hour 6pm

LYC had good little group of folks for the first Happy Hour of the year. Sorry if we missed you. The next one will be in April.


  Tom will have great day sailing competition ready for the day whether we do a buoy race or a distance race.  A great food event party afterwards to follow so mark it on your calendar. Racing events starts at 1 pm.

– Dock Clean up and inventory March 4th 11 am

The dock clean up went very well. We got the signs up, everything cleaned up, things repaired, electrical circuits checked out, and we are in pretty good shape for the new year. Thanks for the help guys. We do have some things on the list.
