    Ahhh Summer – too

    much going on at BYSC

    to list here, so I won’t try.

    As I said last month, with

    so many varied activities

    comes countless different

    ways to get yourself

    involved as a participant and/or as a supporting

    volunteer, and I hope each of you will.

    My thoughts this month turn to

    SUNSCREEN !!! As I am personally dealing

    with having yet another carcinoma removed (this

    one a squamous cell), I strongly encourage the

    liberal and frequent use of sunscreen when

    outside – particularly when on our in the water.

    It is your club – come enjoy it - Chuck

  • Hey Ya’ll,

    It’s Summertime! School is out and the place is

    jumping. Camp kicks off next week and there will

    be a lot if little Critters on the property. Please be

    mindful when backing up trailers and driving

    around the property. As parking will be tight on

    some weekends, please don’t hesitate to ask one of

    the staff the best place to park your trailer. The

    Low Country Regatta is coming up fast, mark

    your calendar for the weekend of June 20th.

    Please contact the office to find out volunteer op-

    your membership ID card. We will also accept your photos for consideration if we are able to resize to fit. Stop by the office—Renee is here with her camera Monday—Thursday from 10 Am—3 PM.

  • Junior Sailing Learn to Sail Camp is

    underway! LTS instruc-

    tors are working hard to

    teach beginner, interme-

    diate and advanced stu-

    dents. You’ll see them

    out there most days enjoying the wind and the sun

    with a great group of youngsters.

    Two of our Learn to Sail Instructors were the only

    applicants from our area accepted to the Brooke Gon-

    zalez Clinic this summer. Drummond Koppernaes was

    selected in the laser radial division. Patrick Mazzeo

    (skipper) & Travis Tucker (crew, LNYC) were accept-

    ed in the Club 420 class. Participants to the clinic are

    evaluated based on resume from a highly competitive

    field. This year they turned away over half of the ap-


    The clinic is usually taught by Olympic and College

    coaches. Patrick & Drummond hope to bring back

    some of the tips they learn at the clinic to the sailors

    they will be working with this summer in Beaufort.

  • Sailing News:


    The Lowcountry Regatta on June

    21-22 is fast approaching. This is

    our biggest sailing event of the

    year and should be a great time

    again. Walt Gnann is Regatta

    Chairman. If you haven’t

    registered on line yet please do. A

    larger number of boats shown on

    the pre-registration list shows

    potential visitors that there will be a good turnout and influence

    them to also sign up. Pre-register on the club website at

    We have approximately 45 volunteers on the water ready to meet

    the sailors and put on a great series. There will be three race

    courses-the North course, headed up by John Barber, with JY15’s,

    Lasers, Sunfish and 420’s; the South course, chaired by Wayne

    Bretsch, with the MC Scows, Sea Island One Designs, Lightnings

    and Snipes; and the Optimist course, headed up by Commodore

    Chuck Rushing, with multiple classes of the Opti kids.

    Non-sailors and non-members are welcome to attend the

    Lowcountry Boil dinner on Saturday night-just make reservations

    and pay on-line or at registration and pay. If you are on race com-

    mittee working on Saturday your dinner is at no charge but you

    would need to make a reservation for your spouse.

    Frank P., RC Chairman

  • I hope ya’ll have been enjoying the new Saline Chlorinated Swimming Pool. It has saved the club some money on chemicals as well as being a little easier on the eyes and skin. I’m glad we where able to make things that much nicer. I have seen a lot of people out there since school let out and we are so glad to see that. If you want to book a pool party please call the office at least a week in advance.

    The Pool is now open for regular hours 9am-7pm Mon- Saturday and 12 pm-7pm Sundays. Join the ladies for water aerobics—call the office for information!
