2018 started out as one of the busiest years at AYC and the second half seems like more of the same. On Memorial Day weekend , instead of Turnback, we had the Luau. Social Chair, Margo Bower, and a great group of volunteers, hosted a fabulous party. The food and drinks were exceptional. Joe Lynch served as DJ and treated us with a super play list and Baila Pacifica entertained us with traditional Hawaiian fire dancers. Chrisann Tortora operated a Polynesian themed photo booth, complete with a tropical backdrop created by AYC’s artist Walter Allan. I have attended many Luaus at AYC and this could be the best!
The weekend of June 9th was one of the busiest all year. We hosted two regattas, the J24 Circuit and the very first DF95 regatta. The DF95 is a radio controlled sailboat and surprisingly represents the fastest growing fleet at AYC. Our Sea Scout ship had a vigorous swim test for its members on Sunday, we had ASA classes, and the PB&J sessions began.
Sailing Director, Coleman Terrell , has done a great job putting together a first rate camp staff this year. As the quality of the Junior Program increases, so does the list of qualified coaches. The PB&J classes have lots of new faces, including many children and grand children of members.
We have been fortunate for some time to have high lake levels, but a combination of dry conditions and LCRA plans to provide water down stream will change that. As of this writing, plans to move docks are under way. Be sure to check and adjust dock lines regularly.
