July 2017 NautiNews




Aww, I love the sounds of summer; songs of frogs, buzzing bees, boats on the water, the wind in our sails, listening to the ocean on a beach, fireworks, bonfires crackling, mosquitos buzzing around our heads-well not so much the mosquitos!!  Whether you’re a land person or water person or both these are just a few reasons we should get outside and enjoy nature this summer.    Your Commonwealth Yacht Club and Green Turtle Bay have scheduled loads of events you can participate in this summer.


First I want to mention the cruise to Barkley Dam.  Cruisers that went on the cruise on June 10 reported having a large time.  Rear Commodore/Long Range Fleet Captain, Danny Cope states:  I want to thank everyone at CYC and GTB for helping make our CYC cruise and overnight stay at Barkley Lodge Marina such a Success!!!  We had beautiful weather and so much fun!!  Great food on the Dock, at the Marina and wonderful dinner at the Lodge!!  Everyone at Barkley Marina and Lodge where fantastic.  I can’t wait for our trip planned to lock through Barkley Dam and cruise to Paducah’s new Port.  We will spend the night and party in down town Paducah!!  A very historic town with so much to see and enjoy!  Hope to plan this trip for late July or August.  Will stay in touch with time and place.  Again, thanks to everyone for a Great Weekend!!  


Starting with July 1, Commonwealth Yacht Club is celebrating July 4th with their CYC Independence Day Celebration by dinner and dancing.  Contact Amber as reservations are required and the club will fill up fast.      


July 1st is also a Sailing Series race on Kentucky Lake from 9:00am-12:00pm.  Contact Vice Commodore Sharla…

June 2017 NautiNews Article

June CYC NautiNews Article


Welcome to summer, with lots of sunshine warming our weather temperature, water and hearts.  While speaking of our hearts, makes me contemplate just how we are all connected.  If your reading this article, then we are already connected by our love of nature, water and water sports.  This brings me to the Six Degrees of Separation theory, which with Facebook and the internet it is now around Three Degrees of Separation.   As explained on Wikipedia, it is the idea that all living things and everything else in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps (now around three).   As my husband and I have made Green Turtle Bay our second home it becomes more and more obvious to me how we are really truly one big family at the Bay.  Especially more so, if you belong to the Commonwealth Yacht Club where “Everyone knows your Name”.   Just think about this and you will realize how true it is!!


If you missed the Kentucky Derby party then you missed having a great time and socializing with CYC members, GTB slip holders, condo owners and resort guests.  If you could not make it this year, plan on coming next year!!!

Now on to CYC and Green Turtle Bay events for June and July.   June 3 is the CYC Board of Directors meeting at 8:30am at the CYC.  If you have any event suggestions contact Commodore Jerry Koerner.

June 3 is also CYC’s Spring Fashion Show.  CYC doors open at 10:15am, the fashion show starts at 11:00am.  Don’t miss this opportunity to get the latest fashion preview which is at the Green Turtle Bay Chandlery.  June 3rd is also CYC’s Beach Party theme dinner and dance, don’t miss it, with entertainment…
