If you weren’t able to be at the club last month, you missed a lot. First of all, I would like to thank the membership for their strong attendance at the general membership meeting that took place on July 7th. There were a total of 85 members including 11 past commodores in attendance. This is more than we generally get at our annual meeting in November! Again, thank you for your involvement in the process. For those of you that didn’t attend, a long awaited project, rehabbing the north shore shower house was approved. There were several suggestions made to the overall plan regarding air conditioning and additional wainscoting. The planning committee and board are considering these requested changes. As we move forward on the project, the first item to be completed is correcting the drainage and installation of new flooring material. Other major changes, including a new roofing system, will be completed this fall when the

R e a r You know, the best part of this job of being Rear Commodore is the ability to relate to all of the volunteers who step up to make a difference at Port Clinton Yacht Club. It seems like just about every issue we deal with has someone willing and able to help make it happen. Like Carolyn Nitz has picked up the slack on mowing the grounds since Justin Ohm became a practicing nurse. Paul Thatcher, who refinished and stained 11 picnic tables before the Porch Party and has decided he’s not through until all of the picnic tables on the grounds get a coat of protection. Stewart Brand brought over his cherry picker from Brand’s Marina to repair and replace the halyards on the north shore flag pole. There are lots more, but that will have to do it for now.

facility is closed for the season. PC Doug Young and board member Don Rodwancy will serve as project managers. One of the problems we have during these busy times, is the general cleanliness of the grounds. On numerous occasions over the 4th of July weekend, bags of trash and other debris were piled around trashcans that were overflowing, when others nearby had additional capacity. We have also noticed that the flowerpots at the club entrance have been used to discard bar cups and beer bottles. Our flower committee takes great pride in attending to these, so it disheartening for them to see this. We all have an ownership interest in our club. So, please take an extra few minutes and do your part in keeping this a place we all can be proud of. As the hot summer continues, there are plenty of events taking place. If summer means eating and enjoying your friends and family, then this is the place for you.

As I write this, the temperature is approaching the 100-degree mark. I think I’ll have to stop by the bar for a cool one. I invite everyone to do the same! Commodore,

C o m m o d o r e Thanks to Vince Leone for pointing out an exposed plug near the old Wolf property and PC Doug Young for pointing out another one of those exposed pieces of old piping west of the dry-sail area. Members often point out little problems that can become big problems, and I welcome the input. We want to fix things before they become problems whenever we can. I was very glad to see House Manager PC Chuck Reichman back at work on Monday, July 18 following surgery. He has been my principal CYA agent inside the Club. Also on Monday, July 18, the new night pool cover arrived for initial installation. Head Lifeguard Jenni Clawson and pool attendant Ty Gallogly got some hands on practice at installing and removing the covers.

Caretaker Eric then spent time with the entire pool staff to make certain they were well versed in putting it on at night and taking it off in the morning. The board approved the re-installation of the “No Parking” signs along the north shore near the beach. Part of the charm for the dockers along the north shore is the great views of the Lake. It shouldn’t interfere with folks who want to walk the beach or visit the now infamous “Tiki Hut”. Finally, this is the height of the season at our club, so please be careful when you are driving around the grounds. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Now, for my I-LYA Report…ahhhhh, maybe another time!

S a i l We are having a successful sailing year. Learn to sail. Dr. Suzi Leon along with our 3 great instructors Tristan Nighswander, Maddie and Chloe Beck are doing a super job with our younger kids. We have 22 Opti sailors enrolled. The LTS program is key to the development of future yachts people. Maddie, Chloe and Tristan are doing a wonderful job teaching the young sailors safety and the respect for the water and weather. Our Jr. sailors are also learning yachting skills that include boat handling, knots, and the maintenance and organization skills required in keeping our PCYC boats and equipment clean and in good working order. Race Team. Vince Leon is in charge of the racing program and has been very active in getting our kids additional education, racing and interaction with other Club team members. Some of the highlights have been traveling to Cleveland Edgewater Yacht Club and participating in their regatta and race clinic. They also spent a few days prior to our Jr. Regatta at Put-In-Bay racing and learning with the members PIB Yacht Clubs race team. Thanks for accommodations go out to Kathy Clark for the Cleveland event and to the families of the PIB race team. th

PCYC North Coast Jr. Regatta. (July 9 ) We had super attendance at the PCYC North Coast Jr. Regatta. 108 Boats and 144 participants from 15 different Yacht Clubs. We had 8 Boats and 10 racers representing PCYC. There are many people to thank but do to room in the Jib Sheet I will keep it to the top brass, Dave Nighswander “Race Chair Water”, Vince Leon “ Race Chair Land”, Kathy Clark “Score Keeper”, Commodore Bailey and VC Bickley for baking on the race courses. Thanks to those that volunteered for Committee Boats, Mark boats, Registraion, Food, T-shirt sales, Parking, Hoist, Cleanup. Thanks to all the North Shore folks and those next to and across from the hoists for helping with parking and relocation of cars and boats. As you can see a lot of people in our club are involved and that is why our regattas are such a huge success! Stray Cat Regatta. (July 16th) This is a very good fund raiser for our Jr. sailing program. We had 10 Catamarans participating. This is a unique regatta which have the boats starting and finishing off of the North Shore beach. One unique race was a 25 mile distance/poker run race. At each mark rounding the crews had to grab a playing card taped to a boat hook or picked out of a fishing net. Thank you Kathy Clark, PC Doug Young, John Madison, Dave Nighswander and Dr. Mark Hablizel.

TO CLEAR UP ANY CONFUSION ...for those who are contemplating taking the opportunity to visit Rattlesnake Island on Thursday, August 18th, I offer the following clarifications: the $25 docking fee has been waived, and the $44 buffet lunch poolside is optional (per Rattlesnake Island manager David Gresh). The dinner remains at $5055/person plus beverages. As of this writing there are approximately 12 boats and 52 people attending the cruise – out. It is requested by Rattlesnake

that one credit card per boat be used for the day and each person traveling settle up with the credit holder after leaving. This will speed up the departing process after dinner. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit to enjoy the swimming pool. There are facilities available for changing clothes for dinner. Those traveling to Rattlesnake should plan to arrive approximately at noon. There will be personnel available to help dock your boat. Also, don’t forget the August 12th – 14th Cruise – Out to the Huron Boat Basin. To date 14 boats have signed up. That weekend in Huron will feature an art show and a pig roast for your enjoyment. Finally, don’t forget the sm al l b o at /in f l at ab l e “Texas Hold ‘EM” run on Sunday, September 4th as part of the Labor Day Celebration. Stay cool and enjoy your club! FCoP Dave Mehl
