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!!

November 2016 CYC NautiNews Article
With November I get a little sad and start missing the boating season, even though there is so much to look forward to in winter months. I get particularly sentimental missing our boating friends who have left or will be leaving Green Turtle Bay heading to warmer temperatures, or beginning a new adventure by sailing around the world and that’s you, Ann Matejcek. Bon Voyage to all of you and safe travels, you will be missed!!
I would like to talk about past CYC events held in September and October before moving on to November. CYC’s annual Seafood Boil in September, CYC’s 11th Annual Commonwealth Cup Regatta on October 1, 2016 and the Annual Members Meeting on October 9th..
The Seafood Boil, again this year, was very successful. Mainly thanks to our volunteer’s and cooks. The boil could not have happened without all who volunteered and worked so hard behind the scene. Starting with Monday before the event with Green Turtle Bay and volunteers erecting the tent to cleaning tables and chairs etc, the list goes on & on. 192 folks enjoyed the delicious seafood dinner even though the temperature was very warm, as in HOT— “37 Degrees North” can attest to since they Entertained us mostly in the hot sun!!
The 11th Annual Commonwealth Cup Regatta was another successful CYC event held on October 1. 12 boats raced, vying for the coveted Commonwealth Cup trophy, which was won this year by James Wells and family on “Whirlaway”. Congratulations to James and family. Many thanks to all the racers who participated and particularly to First Kentucky Bank for your title sponsorship of this race..
The Annual Members Meeting was held on October 9 with the election of the 2017 CYC Officers and Directors. Everyone…Continue
