April 24th 2015 will be the date for our annual Youth Fleet Silent Auction night. The event was well attended last year and raised enough funds to fully repair one of the BYC RIB’s.

As all boat owners are well aware there is always something else demanding attention and funds. This year we are building our fleet by purchasing lightly used Opti’s and Lasers. These boats will be the foundation for both our advanced learn to sail program and the BYC race team.

The race team will be competing at every regatta in the Northwest in 2015 and we are also looking to put a large trailer together so we can haul sail and coach boats to the races.
