The fall months are always an adjustment for us all at MYC. They bring a chill in the air and new exciting birth of fresh air to our beautiful club and all it offers!
Looking back at our spring and summer months with all that 2020 has brought us, MYC has
weathered the “storm”. Thank you staff and members for all your hard work, commitment,
understanding and support. Moving forward, we plan on our pool facility to remain open for a few more weeks depending on weather and availability of limited staff. We will push the season as long as possible for our members to enjoy.
On another note – thanks goes out to our fleet captain Sarah Ferrante and committee for a successful MYC Invitational regatta and congrats to Tom Treat (and son), Gretchen McCarthy & Bruce Kuryla for retaining the trophy! The boating season is possibly the best this time of year so get out on the water and enjoy!
Clearly, the virus has disrupted our normal monthly member event schedule, but our management, VC and committees have thought outside the box, providing us with everything from a drive-in movie night to a lively and robust safe-distance music schedule! It hasn’t been easy navigating these waters while staying within the State Heath Dept.guidelines, but we have certainly managed to put a safe, busy and fun schedule together.
In the next couple of months as we will be moving inside more often, please be assured we are taking every precaution possible for a safe, clean and comfortable facility. You will see a somewhat new layout in the Commodore’s Lounge and dining room as well as some clear safety shielding to protect both the staff and members. Also, thorough weekly cleanings will be done to ensure a safe environment. Our officers and management are committed and ask for your support and understanding during this time. I’m looking forward to a great fall season at MYC!
See you in the Commodore’s Lounge, Cheers!
Commodore, Ken Herbert

As I write this letter we are anxiously awaiting the green light for phase two of the reopening of our state. It has been a long haul for our country, state, town and us here at MYC. With all the unfortunate unrest in our country between the COVID-19 pandemic and national protests, it’s nice to know in a couple weeks MYC will be in full swing and it will be a safe and inviting environment for us all to enjoy.
Thank you all for supporting our curb side take out offerings and now, too, our outside dining options. We are anxious and ready for the reopening of our inside restaurant very soon. VC Bud Franke and our management staff have done a great job working with the state and local officials to insure a safe and pleasant atmosphere. They will continue to make the needed temporary adjustments of our R & B operation moving into the next phase of the reopening.
Every day we are monitoring the reopening guidelines and will be quick to respond to get our club in full operation. Our marina is fully operational (please follow the posted temporary rules). Our pool and snack bar is ready to open ASAP when we get the go ahead from the state; we are fully staffed and ready to run our swimming and sailing programs very soon, on or close to the same schedule as a regular season.

See you all for fun summer at MYC!
Commodore Ken Herbert
Well it’s been quite a month. Our core staff has been very busy with our curbside food offerings, getting the marina up and running, and working on some outdoor spring cleanup and yes, getting our pool ready for the summer season.
These are trying times, and here at MYC we know all our members are dreaming of is the day that they can enjoy all their Club has to offer. With that said we are diligently planning our reentry into “The New Norm “. Clearly it will be an adjustment that we all, unfortunately, have become accustomed to. There will be some new procedures and rules, but we will do everything within the new state mandates to make all members and staff feel safe and welcome and we ask that you do the same.
Luckily for us, our facility has the space to spread out, so there will be a somewhat new look at the clubhouse with social distance seating inside and out. We will still be offering curbside pickup for those who remain at home. The Marina is open with social distances rules in place. The dock staff will be wearing masks and gloves, and they will clean dock carts, the tender, hose faucets – etc. multiple times a day. Our cleaning service will be stepping up their schedule at the JYC and clubhouse. The main clubhouse is closed to keep our core staff safe and curbside open. The Office is available to answer any questions you may have via email or phone.
As we all anxiously await May 20th when our Governor informs us of the real reopening dates, and mandates we also must realize every day brings a different question and challenge as to our planning of ” The New Norm” here at MYC. We will continue to watch for the updates and will communicate the new protocols as soon as they are in place. I personally would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming patience, and support for your BEAUTIFUL club – my father would always say in tough times (l’ve heard the same saying lately). “THIS TOO SHALL PASS”. See you all six feet apart on our patio very soon!
Happy holidays to all of our MYC family and friends! With the holidays upon us, it’s time to reflect and to think back on the fantastic year that we’ve had at the Club. Our staff has worked so hard to give us the best experience possible from the docks to the pool to the restaurant and the bar. Our dedicated staff is here every day for us so please show your appreciation and give to the MYC Staff Holiday Fund. I also want to personally thank all of our employees and members who made my job so enjoyable over the last two years. It’s truly been an honor to serve as your Commodore.
I look forward to this month, with so much going on at the Club! The MYC Tree Decorating event, the Ladies’ Holiday Happy Hour, Breakfast with Santa, the MYC Annual Holiday Party and the BIG BASH of the year, the MYC New Year’s Eve Gala Celebration! Call today to make your reservations as these events always sell out!
