BYSC is considering setting up “Cruising Groups” for boat owners with boats that have the capacity to make trips to destinations near and a little bit or a lot farther.

The Cruisers would include 2 groups: a Power Squadron and a Sail Squadron.

There is no limit on the trips, destinations or durations. The trip details would be left up to individual squadron members. Nor will either squadron be limited to power or sail only adventures.

The only limitation on the group’s adventures will be the limits they establish for themselves. Trips could be to a marina where boats could tie up to a dock or to a more remote location where boats would set anchors and “stay on the hook”.

We also envision non boat owners participating as crew. This would allow Club Members who are not experienced boaters to learn and understand why boating can become such a passion.

Before going further with the organization of the Cruiser Groups however we would like to get feedback from club members on their interest in this idea.

Please respond to  and let us know if you would be interested in participating, whether or not you are a boat owner and if you are, what type of boat you own.

If you would like to participate as crew, please include your preference and if you have boating experience.


Thanks in advance,
