Commodore's Corner | February 2018 | By: Sharla Sparks

WAKE UP SAILING FANS! The Spring Sailing Series is “just around the corner!” The first race is on the calendar for April 28…just around the next couple of corners. To help pass the time, here is a list of the top ten things overheard while racing the CYC Sailing Series:

  1. “You had better bring your A-GAME; I’ve got my racing sail on!” Someone always has to talk smack.
  2. “Where’s the mark?” The CYC Sailing Series uses existing marks on the lake. They can be hard to spot with waves and sunshine in your eyes.
  3. “HEY! How big is that sail???” Sail-envy is real.
  4. “We are EATING TREES on them!” Racers tend to look at how the trees disappear and reappear from view behind the competitor’s sails as a way to tell who is moving faster.
  5. “Where’s the snactician?” Speaking of eating, racing makes folks hungry!
  6. “Can anybody see the mark?” Those green and red marks on the lake do sometimes drag and aren’t where we think they should be. Other times, skipper’s brain drags, and it isn’t where we think it should be.
  7. “Look at that dirty bottom!” A freshly scrubbed boat bottom is a faster boat bottom. Racers think about their bottoms often.
  8. “Do I see white caps?” When the whitecaps come out, some skippers get nervous. Some skippers start to grin more…
  9. “STARBOARD!” Racers love to assert their right-of-way!
  10. “When’s our next race???” Check out this year’s schedule below:


Spring:  April 28, May 12, May 19, June 9, June 23, and July 14.

Fall:  September 1, September 15, September 30, October 13, October 27, and November 10.

NautiNews | February 2018 | By: Ann Donnelly

We made it through January and for most of us, it’s only around 6 weeks to boating season, or less, depending on what Mother Nature dishes out to us.  Although still turtle neck and wool sock weather here in the Midwest, we are gaining around 2 ½ minutes of daylight every day in February.  Spring officially begins with the Spring Equinox on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, this event marks the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.  I say Bring on the Sunshine, it just makes us happy!

February 8th, the CYC reopens for the season, hooray!!  The annual Mid Winters Blues party is planned to be February 3rd at the Commonwealth Yacht Club. The first board meeting for 2018 will be February 10 at 9:00am at the Commonwealth Yacht Club.  Contact Commodore Sharla Sparks if you have any event suggestion or wish to volunteer at any CYC sponsored event, at

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart or just celebrate at the Commonwealth Yacht Club on February 10th. 


Enjoy great food, entertainment and visit with all your friends you have missed seeing during the winter months.  Check out Green Turtle Bay’s “Sweetheart” Condo rental package, call GTB at 270-362-8364 to book your condo.


March events at the CYC and GTB begins on March 3rd with the CYC board meeting at 9:00am at the Commonwealth Yacht Club.   Plan to watch the Grand Rivers LBL Ultra Run on March 10th.  Come Celebrate “Wearing of the Green” by putting on your favorite green outfits, or risk being pinched, at CYC’s annual St. Patrick’s Day party on March 17th. This party is one of the most fun parties ever, don’t miss it! 


If you have started your spring cleaning, mark your calendar to participate at the CYC Pirates Market on April 21 and just remember your junk is someone else’s…

CYC NautiNews October 2017 Article

CYC OCTOBER 2017 NAUTINEWS ARTICLESummer 2017 has ended way too fast, but another wonderful season, Fall or Autumn is upon us as the fall equinox was September 22, 2017.  Winter Solstice is not until December 21, so we are good to go with boating for a couple more months.  For most of us boating is no way over, enjoying the cool days and cooler nights in the fall and early winter, out on the lake is very calming and delightful.   As I am writing this article, I am contemplating Mother Nature…See More
