NautiNews May 2016

Hello to May.  April showers bring May flowers and the beginning of boating season.   In the month of May, we have the Commonwealth Yacht Club Derby Party; CYC Board meeting, CYC sponsored First Line Fire Extinguisher’s visit to Green Turtle Bay, CYC’s Mother’s Day Brunch, CYC’s Flag Retirement Ceremony, May Sailing Series and last but not least CYC’s Memorial Day Party.

May 7th is a busy day at Green Turtle Bay and the Commonwealth Yacht Club. The day starts at 8:30 with the CYC’s Board meeting.  Contact Commodore David Jernigan if you have any event suggestions or questions.

First Line Fire Extinguisher will visit Green Turtle Bay at 10:00am at Dockers parking lot.  They sell new and used fire extinguishers; they can refurbish fire extinguishers and will inspect and certify for another year. 

Then we have the Commonwealth Yacht Club’s Kentucky Derby party from 3:00 to 5:15pm. After the Derby Party enjoy a delicious dinner at the post CYC Derby  Party that evening.  The afternoon Derby party is a must attend event, if for no other reason but to see all the beautiful Derby hats worn by the ladies/gentlemen.   

May 7th and May 21st is the May Sailing Series dates. May 21st is the Distance Race. Meet Sharla Graham on Kentucky Lake at 10:00a.m. to participate in these races.

May 8th is the CYC’s always delicious Mother’s Day Brunch.  Do not miss out treating your mother/spouse to the brunch by making  reservations asap. 

May 28 is CYC’s Flag Retirement Ceremony held at Green Turtle Bay’s beach beginning at 10:00am.  This event will be conducted by Rear Commodore Terry West.  Take all your tattered and worn American flags to the Ship’s Store so they can be retired in an honored and reverent ceremony.

May 28th is also the CYC’s Memorial Day party…

Horray for Spring, let the season begin!!


Winter is finally behind us and spring is here.  Beginning this month, our Commonwealth Yacht Club and Green Turtle Bay marina is starting to wake up with loads of events starting up.  I am going to cover events for April and May in this newsletter.  Continue to monitor all our resources so you don’t miss out on “What’s happening at the Bay”.


Board Meeting

Our April Commonwealth Yacht Club board meeting is April 2, 2016; the May meeting is on May 7 at the Commonwealth Yacht Club.  Contact Commodore David Jernigan at if you have any board concerns or any event suggestions.
