FOR 14-Mar-17

 Put Your Irish On!

Come out to the March Pub night on this Sunday, March 19th. Pub night is at The Corner starting at 5pm. Hope to see you all there!



Hi there - I’m Maggie Smyth (C Dock Full Tilt) and I have taken over providing the regalia service from Linda Fuhro, who has done a great job over the years! 

Here is a little 101 or reminder of how this works.  

Each year I will order items that I think will be functional in the sailing world as well as fashionable. You can give me suggestions and price points.  You have 2 times in the year that you can order your size and colour. I will email you when it is ready and arrange pick up. Easy! 

You can place your order at the Launch Party May 13th or at Sailpast on June 3rd. (bring your cheque book or cash). There will be samples of sizes and colours on these two dates. 

If you miss out on these order days, the stock that has not been purchased will be at Gyles for the remainder of the summer. Don’t miss out - put your order in early so you can proudly wear your TYC branded clothing throughout the summer! 

This year we will have a few different items including quick dry towels that you can have personalized. 

So exciting!!  Look forward to connecting or re-connecting this season!

Harbour Update

Happy (almost) Spring everyone!  The unofficial first sign of Spring is the power being turned back on at the harbour.  Jason was down this morning and turned all of the land storage power on so if you want to top up your batteries or if you’re brave enough to work on your boat in these cold temperatures it is available.  On a safety note, double check your extension cords for splits or breaks and make sure you don’t leave any heating devices unattended at any time! 

On March 6 2017 The Blue Mountains Council approved a staff report dealing with harbour debt from dock replacement and dredging.  Within in that report was a proposal to end the $2/ft per year increases and reduce it to $1/ft per year beginning in 2018.  The whole report can be viewed at the following link.  (The report identifies a bi-annual payment that should read semi-annual.)
