This week's potluck theme is Mardi Gras. Cheryl Padilla , Kristine Lowney and Michelle Tormey are graciously hosting. Please bring your favorite Cajun inspired dish to share. The pool will be open for swimming and junior activities will be in full swing!
Renee Jones will very kindly sponsor a Food Drive at the potluck this Thursday. Members are asked to bring nonperishable food (fresh vegetables from your garden are also good as Renee will bring all her goodies to the Tiverton Food Bank on the following day.)
The TYC led over 18 boats participating in the Celebrate Tiverton Parade of Sail on Friday evening July 25th. Boats ranging in size from an Old Town Canoe to a Shannon 38 cruising Sailboat were decorated with lights and Patriotic Motif. The boats sailed/motor/paddled in front of Grinnell's Beach at sunset to an appreciative crowd.
Led by Commodore Steve Hughes, the club marched in the Celebrate Tiverton Parade down Main Road on Saturday July 26th, . Thanks to Wayne Karzenski for providing his Jeep to tow one of the club's fully rigged Optimist sailboat and to the members of sail training who helped decorate the boat and march in the parade.
Last Wednesday (7/23) 20 boats raced in heavy weather conditions, southwest winds of 22 knots. Past club member and Commodore Joe Ney won the 7 boat Class A, the only boat to use a spinnaker. Eleven boats competed in Class B which was won by a former TYC member, Dave Pritchard. Class C had only 2 salty members and our Rich Fournier hung in there for a second.
