March 1st Commodore Letter

Dear NLYC Members,

With the first warm temperatures of the year, our thoughts move directly to summer and sailing.

Despite 2020 being a challenging year on many levels, the NLYC is in good financial standing. The attached documents are the 2020, end of year statements. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our treasurer, Paul Price. Thanks also to Linda Ross and Paul Price for all they do to keep the NLYC books up to date and the Board Of Directors informed. NLYC is in search of a new treasurer. If you are interested, please contact me.

Moving forward, the 2021 season will have many opportunities. It looks like we will have a full racing schedule, including many off lake regattas. Please make plans to attend. The social schedule should be full as well, including the 125th + 1 anniversary celebration. Please contact MaryLloyd Lynn-Murphy for social volunteer opportunities.

NLYC is moving forward with our improvement project approved by the membership in the fall. Herb Rasmussen (with help from Craig Heinze and Sam Monroe) is leading our patio and pavilion improvements. Thanks Herb, Craig, and Sam.

Dues will stay the same for the 2021 season. MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL IS OPEN. Please log on to and register. Payment can be made by check or credit card (for a small fee). Payment is DUE by APRIL 1st

I look forward to the 2021 sailing and social season as well as serving as your commodore.

5 Reasons Why All Kids Should Sail

There might be nothing in the world that packs as many life lessons as the activity of sailing. It teaches teamwork, engineering, history, patience, oceanography, ecology…all in one fell swoop. Because of this, we believe every kid should learn to sail and here’s the top five reasons why. Feel free to add your own.
