The September Rudder is posted . . .
Welcome to the September breeze at Milford Yacht Club! As I write this month’s letter in a heatwave, it’s hard to think about the leaves starting to turn and the season change. It is still one of the most beautiful months of the year to be by the water.
The Late summer crickets are singing and that song (to me) means “fish on!” So anglers, sharpen up your hooks because the annual MYC Bluefish Tournament will be held on September 30th and the competition will be fierce! Weigh in is at 3pm followed by awards, complimentary bluefish, chowder and salad. The top angler gets his year-long bragging rights trophy! (Call the MYC Anglers’ Hotline 203-444-6645 for more details. Operators are standing by.)
There is still plenty of good boating season left. We will be hosting the Nutmeg Star Regatta and the Last Chance Regatta on the weekend of September 22nd and 23rd. Our Fleet Captain, Bob Farnum, is looking to recruit Race Committee volunteers for these fun events. Race Committee is a great way to get out on the wa-ter with a complimentary box lunch, beverage and an opportunity to be a part of MYC’s sailing tradition.
See you at the fish cleaning station (hopefully).
