LOG Article
Due to the success of the Support Boat Compass Fund project, an Inmar 17 foot rigid hull inflatable boat with a 70 HP outboard has been purchased for delivery in September. Our Support Boat Committee is working on a training program for operators and crew and on finalizing equipment purchases for the boat. As soon as possible after delivery, safety equipment and a custom protective storage cover will be purchased so the boat will be ready for the busy fall season.

Volunteer operators and crew for the Support Boat will be needed. All IYC members are invited to help. If you are interested, please contact Michael Mixson, Bob Gould or Christi van Heek for more information on training, etc.

Joe Onofrio reports that, despite summer being the “slow” season, Social Sailing has been well attended. Social Sailing is a great Wednesday morning activity that is enjoyed by both sailors and non-sailors. It is offered free of charge to all IYC members. You can sign up on the IYC website or with the office. If you want a private day sail just about any time, contact the office to schedule a Harbor 20 charter. If you are not a skipper qualified by Bob Sween, the office will arrange for a qualified skipper to sail with you.


The IYC Sailing Club is starting a trial sailing program with Crossroads Hope Academy. Crossroads is a nonprofit home and charter school for foster boys who have had multiple failed placements in the Florida Foster care system. The boys range in age from 13 to 18. One morning a week for the month of August, six boys will sail with ISC members to learn the basics of sailing. The goal of the program is to introduce the boys to sailing and train them in the teamwork required for a racing keelboat. It's a great opportunity for the Club to give back to the community and to put smiles on both young and old faces.

In mid-July, a very nice mid-summer update was prepared by Michael Mixson and sent via email to Sailing Club members. If you are a Sailing Club member and did not receive the email update, contact Amanda in the office and she will add you to the mailing list.
