    CANCELED DUE TO RED TIDE!!



    This month, our cruise will take us to ___!


    Anyone who is planning on going on a cruise should attend the Skipper's Meeting (or email the Cruising Chair, see below) because this is where decisions are made: 
    • routes are selected, or CHANGED
    • timing is calculated, or CHANGES
    • weather is discussed, CHANGES are sometimes made
    • things to know are shared, and sometimes CHANGED
    • things to look out for are pointed out, and sometimes CHANGES
    • stowaways find space, and sometimes....
    • ... things change!

    In other words.... if something CHANGES, do not blame the Cruise Chair because you weren't paying attention! :-)

We also provide information about federal and state safety requirements, emergency procedures, and “local knowledge” of nearby waters.

     

    Class is limited to 20 Adults and will fill up quickly, so register early!

    Sail School needs your help - and it's not weekend volunteering!


    Wednesday October 27th


    It's that time when, at the end of our session, we (BCYC) traditionally offer to take the students out on our boats for a sunset cruise around Boca Ciega Bay.  We've got a class of students interested in joining you on your boat to share what being a part of this club is about: sailing, camaraderie, making new friends, and enjoying a jaunt around the bay with a cold beverage and a warm sunset.


    We'll plan to leave the dock around 5:30 with a Full Moon rising at 5:57 pm and sunset about 6:30 pm.


    Thanks again and in advance for supporting your Adult Sail School Program and BCYC - we couldn't do it without you!


    Cheers!

    The 2021 Cat's Point Regatta will be held Nov 6-7 at BCYC.


    "Cat's Point" is annually commissioned as a national event for Venture and Sea Scouts. The two groups are scored separately and awarded separately. SS Ship #912 and Boca Ciega SS Ship 915 jointly hold and staff the event. The competition is broken into Land events and Water events.


    Five-member crews from each competing Ship participate in five heat regattas using Club Collegiate 420 sloops and Sunfish. Later, on Saturday night each team will construct a sailing vessel out of a watermelon which they will race on Sunday after an interdenominational service.


    On Sunday a highly competitive "Tug-of- Canoes is held between the teams with great cheering and excitement. The 10 to 15 land games are held on Saturday to fill time between time on the water. Each land game tests the nautical knowledge of the scouts. The events are new each year and demand that the teams compete demonstrating skills from the rank requirements of the scout manual on a round robin basis. they are scored by time used to complete the task and the equal participation if each crew member.


    At Cat's Point the performance of each team on the water carries 50% of their score and the Land games success contributes 50%.


    This event is the only Sea Scout event in the US where all scouts and their leaders are issued yachts to sleep on. The members of Boca Ciega Yacht Club have proudly lent the use of their boats to the Scouts for eleven years. When the kids check out the owners say the boats are always cleaner and more orderly than when they came aboard.


    When the scouts head for home most of them have completed several rank requirements, all of them have eaten well and many have spent the first night sleeping on a yacht. Every other year the Gulfport Fire Dept. involves the kids in live fire control exercises and the supervised firing of distress rockets and flairs.

    In other words.... if something CHANGES, do not blame the Cruise Chair because you weren't paying attention! :-)

    On Saturday, December 11th at TBD pm,

    BCYC presents their

    36th Annual Christmas Boat Parade!


    Check back in late October for more info!

    Registration will NOT be open until November 1st!


    Each year, BCYC members and invited friends come together to spread holiday joy by decking the hulls and heading out on Boca Ciega Bay to parade the BCYC way!

    Boats will begin to gather in  the bay around TBD pm. At TBD pm, the Gulfport Police boat will call the boats together to line up, and will then lead the parade. We start at the Gulfport Municipal Marina and pass by the BCYC clubhouse on our way out into the bay. Next we head to Gulfport's Williams Pier and the beach, passing by the Gulfport Casino. We make our way through the communities of Town Shores, Skimmers Point, Pelican Bay, past Kipps Colony and the Pasadena Yacht & Country Club, then to the Pasadena Golf Club Estates where holiday parties wait for us to pass by. Then we will head back to our slips.

    But it's about more than fun and merriment! Participants need only a simple fee to enter - two (or more!) unwrapped toys for Operation Santa. Operation Santa, coordinated by the Gulfport Police Department, collects toys for the children of Gulfport whose holidays would not be as cheerful without the generosity of the community. Boca Ciega Yacht Club is proud to have been part of Operation Santa for 20 years!

    Mandatory Skipper's Meeting: Saturday, December 11th @ 12:00 pm at the BCYC Clubhouse - NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Skipper Check-in: All skippers (or a member of the crew) may pick up a numbered sign, zip ties, and a light on Saturday, December 11th, starting at 9am. You can also drop off your Boat Entry "fee" at the same time.


    Boat Entry Fee: Two (or more) unwrapped children's presents OR a check made out to "Operation Santa", the City of Gulfport's annual toy drive.


    Prizes: TBD


    If you have any questions, please contact parade chair Jenn Buckley at (813) 323-5852, or email boatparade@sailbcyc.org.
