Spring 2015 Newsletter

Happy May from the Cuttyhunk Yacht Club!  Now that the ice has departed from the harbor we can start thinking about the summer days ahead.  Here are some announcements:

News and Announcements 

Renew membership and register for classes - Please visit the new redesigned CYC website (www.cuttyhunkyachtclub.org) to renew your membership and register kids for the summer sailing classes. Thank you to Libby Garfield for getting this up and running and for coordinating our membership!  If you need a password to get logged in, please contact Libby at:  cuttyhunkyachtclub@gmail.com

Work weekend June 13-14 2015!  - We would like to press you into service for the good of the club!  This is a great excuse to make a weekend or day trip to Cuttyhunk.  Lunch will be served to all the scrubbers, sweepers, lifters, painters, etc.  Along with commissioning the boats we have a lot of other projects that need attention.  Many hands make light work! Please join the crew on Saturday June 13 if you can!

CYC third instructor  - We have a great team of instructors onboard for the 2015 summer – Maddie Lynch, Hannah Lynch, Sebastian Lucas, and Ben Frothingham.  We are still looking to fill one of the CYC third instructor position.  Third instructors typically have completed advanced sailing and some instructor experience, such as teaching sailing as a CYC junior instructor. We’re hoping to fill the position for nine weeks but we’ll also consider applicants who can work part of the season.

Fleet maintenance technician -  We are looking to hire a fleet maintenance technician (10-15 hours per week) to perform regular maintenance and repair to the CYC sailboats and support powerboats. This person is responsible for working with the CYC instructors to identify and prioritize needed maintenance and repair of the boats in the N10, Laser, and 420 fleets.  Some experience with boat hardware and marine repair is necessary.  Expected tasks include repairing or replacing rigging and hardware, hull repairs, etc.  General facilities maintenance may also be included. Hourly rate based on experience.
 
Lasers for sale
The CYC will be replacing four of the Lasers this year!  To make room for these new boats we are offering up four of the used Lasers to be available for purchase for $500.  The boats will be equipped with rigging, spars, and a sail but will be sold as-is.  We need to make room for the new Lasers so these boats cannot be stored at the CYC and must be relocated once they are purchased.  Any boats that do not find a new home will be shipped off island so please let us know if you’re interested.

If you are interested in any of these announcements or have any questions please contact John Kidder at cyckidder@gmail.com.
