OYC NEWS Get Ready for the 2024 Boating Season

What are Osprey Yacht Club members to do when the cold wind blows, and the fireplace beckons? Obviously, the answer is party indoors and get ready for the 2024 boating season! 

After two superb December Holiday Parties, getting ready for spring boating is now the priority. Steve Deutsch, education director, has scheduled seminars to build boater confidence and safety. “VHF Radios” gives boaters an understanding of the many features found in the newer marine radios. “Rules of the Road” is self-explanatory, and the “Suddenly in Charge” seminar is tailored to assist our co-captains (and passengers) in gaining the skills necessary to maneuver their vessel to safety should their Captain suffer a mishap. Add voluntary Coast Guard Auxiliary safety inspections in March (available to all boat owners at AP) and we will be ready for spring boating! 

OYC members should watch for email notifications for the dates and details of these events in addition to finding them on the OYC calendar located on the OYC Group Page. 

To keep the party going, the OYC Board will be holding a Newcomer’s reception, welcoming the over 39 new members joining the club in 2024. We are also happy to announce that we’ve worked with local authorities and will again be serving beer and wine at Marina Park Docktails. We look forward to a fun and event–filled 2024!
