New BYC Website

July 23, 2025

To improve communication with members, a new Club website has been launched! Some features of the site include:

Upcoming events (when they resume)

News & Updates

Bylaws, Smiths Island Regs, Harbour Regs

Kayak Loaner Program

Reciprocal Information

Sailing School

Club Race Info

Bar & Food (when they resume)

Facility rentals

I'd like to draw your attention to the Member's Forum and Crew Bank page where you can create posts to communicate with other members like when you are looking for crew, or want to crew, selling marine items or looking to buy, or when you have pictures to share. Work projects that need to be done around the Club can also be posted for members to volunteer for.

Because the forum page is for member's only, you'll need the password welcometobyc. If you are posting, you'll be instructed to set up a login for yourself.

Any issues or feedback can be directed to beckyphillips012@gmail.com or the webmaster link at the bottom of the page.
