Winter 2015 Newsletter

Happy New Year from the Cuttyhunk Yacht Club!  I hope you’re staying warm this winter and looking forward to summer days.

The 2014 season was very successful and I'd like to thank all the instructors for the wonderful job they did. This past summer Cathy Broderick concluded her tenure as Commodore and I want to offer a special thanks to her for the dedication, hardwork, and many important contributions she made over the years. 

I also want to thank all the many people who help out the club in numerous ways.  The contribution by a large community of volunteers, with tasks both big and small, is what makes the Cuttyhunk Yacht Club successful.  For the past 60 years the CYC has introduced children to boats and taught them how to sail and enjoy the sea.  This wonderful part of our island community is made possible through the efforts of many people and every little bit helps.  Thank you all so much.
