The Club Will Be Anything But Cold And Silent This Winter!

A yacht club can be a lonely place this time of year.  The club's boats are winterized and shrink-wrapped, the docks are pulled out, the mooring balls and chains rest on the hard, and everything is neatly laid out.  But even at ease, it has a righteous sense of order, if not cold and silent.

But at Norwalk Yacht Club, there's a real pot brewing.

Our new, renovated Clubhouse is now open.  Louisa Lima and the Entertainment committee have brought forward an exciting schedule of events that will have us putting the new, 12-month Clubhouse into full use immediately.

Frostbiting is in full swing, and Winter Sailing co-Chairs Will Beery and Anne Walsh report nearly 20 boats showing up regularly to race on Sundays.

Membership Chair Anne Walsh has ten pending new members, an unusually large number for this time of year, when skimming out over the water, grilling on the deck, or sunning on our beach is farthest from our minds.  That said, I noticed some members flopped out on the beach, wrapped up against the chilly winds, enjoying a sunny fall day!  This is a great time to think about friends you might like to introduce to our terrific little club, and entertain for membership.

These and other committees are already working on the NEXT season of the Norwalk Yacht Club.  At a club like ours, it's really up to you how much fun there is to be had, and I urge you to look over the list of committees, and send an email or call a chairperson, to get involved.  Most require nothing more than a modest time commitment, and it's a great way to beat those winter blues.

So Norwalk Yacht Club is going to be anything but cold and silent this winter.  It's going to alive with energy, and a great place to drop by, and get involved.
