Dziubek Ken 2014PumpkinsWho is Responsible for Bringing in New Members?

Is it the Membership Committee Chairman or the Board of Directors or the Commodore or the Club Manager? It is easy to assign the responsibility to  one or all of the above and walk away. The real responsibility is all of the above and all of the members of the South Shore Yacht Club. As Jim Bisenius said, more than once, if ten percent of the club members brought in one new member, we wouldn’t have a problem. These are wise words.

Ghost We have 511 Active Members and a total of 836 that would include all the categories.   Surely we can add more new members from this pool? So let’s try to talk to your friends, relatives and children. Bring them down as guests and show them the South Shore Yacht Club Experience; after all, you joined why shouldn’t they. Tom Gale has commented that people will come to where they are invited and stay where they are welcome. These are also wise words.    



Welcome New Members

New Members Oct 14sPlease welcome the following new members that were accepted at the Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, October 16th: Jean Henning, Dave Sjostrom and Craig Stocks.  Commodore George Artka led them in the Yacht Club Pledge.

Sailing and Racing

SailboatsIf you are interested in sailing, and more specifically racing, there are ample opportunities to join one of our racing fleets, or to crew on one of the boats in those fleets.  The women's fleet races on Mondays, small boats race on Tuesdays.  Big boats race on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  And the double handed fleet races on Fridays.

You can learn more about the various racing fleets by clicking here.  And the racing schedule (for all fleets) is available here.


PowerboatOur power boaters are active fishermen.  An annual fishing contest is held in July.  

In addition, our power boaters host a number of events, usually on Thursdays as well as many weekends.
