The Arundel Yacht Club is a special place to be enjoyed by all members. The Club is in great shape and the new improvements, the main train and the north deck, look fantastic. Certainly we should thank Chris Audley for his work on the new docks and Correctdeck for the generous contribution of the decking for the new deck, as well as the members who contributed to the Memorial Fund. Without this support we would not have been able to complete these projects.
DREDGING UPDATE: Currently we have joined with a number of others on the river to proceed with soil testing. Once we receive the results, they will be forwarded to the Army Corp of Engineers for approval. We hope to be part of a group that dredges this winter. Joining with others should make the project more appealing to contractors, saving us time and money.
Last year as part of our replacement of the main entry, we agreed with the town’s request to provide handicap access to the Ropewalk. This spring we completed the installation of a ramp and deck on the south end. Funding came from the Memorial Fund, and Correct Building Products donated the composite decking material. When you are at the Ropewalk next, be sure to take a look at this addition - it is a great spot for a quiet dinner or smaller gathering.

For a while, we were beginning to believe that all of our social programs this year were going to feel like the Ice Breaker! But, the weather finally came about and this is being written in the wake of the Independence Day BBQ that could not have been held on a nicer summer day. By the time this Lubber’s Log is issued we will be well along in our schedule of social events for the year and from all accounts members who have attended events have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It can’t be said enough… our social events are the products of great teams of AYC members and we want to extend our gratitude to everyone who contributes.
Ways & Means
A donation has been made to the Memorial Fund in honor of, and with congratulations to, Peggy and Dana Kingsley in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. The AYC congratulates Mr & Mrs Kingsley and thanks the donor for their contribution.
George C. Scribner recently passed away. Our condolences to Annette and to his family.
Due to lack of wind and an abundance of thunderstorm activity, the June 27th Boon Island Race had to be postponed. The rescheduled date is 27 August 2005. Entry forms will be accepted up to the morning of the race. The Skippers’ meeting will be at the Ropewalk at 0830, and the starting gun is scheduled for 1030. All sailing vessels young or old with crews experienced or not, are welcome to join in this annual Boon Island Sailboat Race. It’s a Club sponsored fun race. More info here...
The August session of Junior Sailing has a few remaining openings. If interested, please contact Amy Bath: 967-8427 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer is going fast, and we are all trying to get as much time on the water as we can. Thursday nights on the 420s are a fun activity, and we would love to see more adults and kids take part.
A reminder to all members to please speak with Chris Audley before removing any AYC property from the premises. This includes kitchen supplies, tools and/or dock equipment. Would the person(s) who "borrowed" the 3 adaptor plugs (at $45.00 a piece) from the dock please return them. They are needed to plug in the electric pump to bail the boats at the dinghy dock. Thanks much!
The 2005 AYC Yearbook was mailed out this past May. Emphasis this year was on including more pictures of more events. And, for the first time ever, a full color cover.
