NEWS/Upcoming Events …
There is no more club sailing this season (2022). The marks have been removed from Bethany. Watch the website in the spring to see when sailing will commence again.
It is with great sadness that we must report that Dick Chandler has passed away. Dick was a long time HMYC member. He will be missed by all …
All HMYC Members,
I will be leaving for Florida for the winter on November 6th so we will be removing the marks from Bethany earlier that week. After that time, I will be resigning as Commodore of the HMYC. I will be giving up all Commodore/Officer responsibilities below and will be happy to help teach anyone what is needed to be done. By next spring, it is up to someone else to assume the Commodore position and responsibilities for any club sailing in the future. I will continue as a regular club member only.
If anyone is interested in running the HMYC, below is a list of the duties that I have been performing for the club the last four years.
