To: Red Brook Harbor Yacht Club membership

On Wednesday May 6, the Cruise Committee met with the Executive Committee and the hosts of the June & July scheduled RBHYC cruises via Zoom video conferencing.   The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the status of these cruises given the concerns of the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic.  It was decided that the following cruises would be cancelled:

6/6-6/7  Falmouth Inner Harbor

6/20-6/21  Marion

6/25-6/27  Women’s Cruise

7/3-7/4  Vineyard Haven

7/10-7/12  New Bedford

The status of the cruises scheduled later in the summer will be decided over the next few weeks.

Since we couldn’t get together for the spring cookout we decided to hold a club meeting on Thursday May 28, 2020 at 7:00 pm using Zoom video conferencing.  The various RBHYC committees will present their reports.  Pat our Secretary will send out the Zoom meeting invite with instructions on how to attend along with the rules on how will we conduct a meeting of this size using Zoom video conferencing.  We are asking the membership to send us suggestions for additional topics/discussions for this meeting.

We are slowly getting info on when & how marinas/harbors will be opening and what rules/restrictions they will want boaters/visitors to follow.  We request any info our members may have on the status of marinas/harbors that they inform the membership through the RBHYC group email address:  rbhyc_members@googlegroups.com.

Remember to stay safe
