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.
