Social Sailing

Memorial Day to Columbus Day

Wednesday Social, Fire & Ice: Adult Social Sailing is open to all adult members and is held every Wednesday evening during the sailing season. It’s an opportunity to get out on the water whether you are a seasoned sailor or want to get on a boat to see what it’s all about. We have experienced sailors who volunteer as mentors to provide instructions to new sailors. We meet on the deck at 4:00 pm to go over the conditions before our Dockmaster assigns boats. Everyone must wear a PFD and closed toe rubber soled shoes. Capri 14.2’s are then rigged and start leaving the dock at 4:30 pm along with member owned Beetle Cats and Marshall Cats. We usually have a 2nd sail around 5:30 pm. The evening is about a social group sailing activity while making new friends. Fire & Ice starts at 5:00 pm.  

Keep in touch, all BRYC members are invited and welcome!!
