Hello to February 2017
If you have boat projects for 2017 better get them organized because I am not Phil, but as I see it, the beginning of the boating season is a mere 7 weeks away.
February 11 is the Commonwealth Yacht Club’s annual Valentine’s party. This is the first CYC party in 2017 with entertainment provided by 37 Degree’s North. Bring your honey or come solo to break up the monotony of cold winter days, enjoy great food and see all your friends who you may not have visited with since December.
Check out Green Turtle Bay’s Valentine Sweetheart Valentine condo package and be in for a 3 day relaxing get-a-way weekend.
The first CYC board meeting of 2017 is scheduled for February 11 at 9:00am. Be sure to contact Commodore Jerry Koerner if you have event suggestions. The board is working on organizing many fun events for 2017.
Green Turtle Bay starts to awaken on March 1 with the opening of Dry Stack. The March board meeting is on March 4 at 8:30am. Dockers opens on March 9, Thursday’s – Sunday’s.

Here we are in January and baby it’s cold outside!! This is for the brave hearts who are wintering up North. Winter cold, snow and dreary days makes me want to hunker down and hibernate along with Punxsutawney Phil, hopefully when we pop up on February 2 we will not see our shadows.
The good news about cold weather is we burn more calories in cold temperatures than warm temperatures. The not so good news is we want to avoid (SAD) Seasonal Affective Disorder. They say staying inside promotes feeling bummed and grumpy, so there goes hunkering down!! Exposure to outdoor light even when it’s cloudy helps balance serotonin and melatonin, which lifts our moods. Therefore, let’s get outside, start moving and embrace the winter.
Let’s talk about CYC events in December.
The CYC “Ugly Sweater” Christmas party was loads of fun with 37 Degrees North entertaining us.
Sorry, if you missed it. Food was excellent with great appetizers, main course meals and topping off the evening hot chocolate and cookies.
The CYC then welcomed 2017 with the annual New Year’s Eve dinner and dance with another terrific party and brunch at midnight.
Sooo, what’s going on in January -- Nothing!! The Commonwealth Yacht Club is closed for its annual face lift. Green Turtle Bay Resort is open, rent a condo for the weekend and enjoy nature at it’s finest.
The next party will be the annual Valentine’s party on February 11, 2017. This event will be held either at the CYC or Green Turtle Bay’s Conference Center which will…Continue

December 2016 CYC NautiNews Article
The 2016 boating season is mostly over. We carry into 2017 all the fun memories we shared with our friends and family in 2016. The winter months gives us a opportunity to sit back and check out all the catalogs to figure out what boat repairs and work we want to do when spring breaks. Our CYC Commodore, Officers and Board of Directors are working on the 2017 event calendar. If anyone has any event suggestions for 2017 contact Commodore Jerry Koerner.
During the holiday season everyone should not miss the holiday lights at Grand Rivers and Green Turtle Bay marina, they are all unbelievably beautiful.
The CYC and Green Turtle Bay event calendar is winding down with December. The Commonwealth Yacht Club will be closed the month of January and opening up before the Valentine Party in February. Don’t forget to attend CYC’s New Years Eve party on December 31, to welcome 2017 and then enjoy the New Year’s brunch at midnight. Entertainment will be provided by Heart & Soul. Let’s welcome in the New Year together!! The next CYC board meeting will be February 11 at 9:00 am at the Commonwealth Yacht Club. The CYC Valentine’s Party will be in February, I will let you know in next newsletter the exact date. The Valentine’s party to me is just the winter break I need to soften the cabin feeling I get by February. It allows us to see all our friends who we have missed for a couple of months!!
Here’s wishing everyone a most joyous, blessed and happy holiday season. Stay safe and see you in 2017!!
