Message from the Commodore:

March 29, 2022

TO: All RBHYC members

As the new boating season gets under way, the Membership Growth Committee requests your help.  Last year the committee reviewed and updated the RBHYC brochure.  The brochure is a great method to introduce potential members to the benefits of our club.  To help each of you when discussing the benefits of belonging to the RBHYC copies of the brochure are available upon your individual request.  For copies of a brochure please contact either Jim Chandler or Jim Emo.  In the past, several of us have used the brochure to advantage when discussing membership in a yacht club such as RBHYC.

So, as each of us begins to unwrap our boats prior to launching, please just take a few minutes to talk with other boaters around you and tell them the benefits you have found as a member of the RBHYC.  In addition we are also asking that you invite a potential new member to our 2022 Spring Cookout to be held on May 21, 2022 at Parkers Boatyard.  Just keep us informed on the numbers attending to ensure we have enough food.

We had 90 active members for 2021 and are looking to grow our membership to over 100 for the year 2022 and set a stretch goal of 120 members.

Any questions you may have may be addressed to any of the following Membership Growth Committee members:

James Emo (

Ray Goodale  (

Ken Skinger (

Jim Chandler (

Adrien Rock (

Included in this correspondence is the RBHYC 2022 Event Calendar and it’s posted to our website.  We are still looking to fill the soon to be vacant position of RBHYC Secretary, interested please contact Commodore Jim Emo.  We were not able to get anyone to participate on the Budget Review Committee so the Executive Committee will take on that task.  If you haven’t already done so please get your 2022 membership renewal dues in to our Treasurer Sue Flanagan.

Thanks in advance & stay safe.

Commodore – James Emo
