June 2017 - Yahoo, summer is officially here! I have been taking part in the Island Girls’ Sailing Adventure (Round 2 for me) and am looking forward to the Regatta this weekend and the LaSalle Mariners Challenge Regatta that is being held on July 16, 2017. Come on out and cheer us on! A lot of work went on behind the scenes to make this adventure happen and it didn’t go unnoticed. I can honestly say, first hand, what a blast the participants have had.
I am looking forward to getting out on the lake more frequently and learning more about sailing. Like most things, I think the more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.
Lots of fun activities have been planned by our Social Officer, Wendy Foote, aka Auntie Social. Come on out and enjoy the fun and festivities at the Cedar Island Yacht Club over the summer months.
Since I am still new to the Club, there are a number of people who I have not met yet, and I am looking forward to meeting you.

March 2017 - Today is a blustery snow- filled day - but that will be over soon and before you know it – sailing season will be here.

Just because the sailboats are tarped on shore and there is snow on the ground doesn’t mean there isn’t work to do! The CIYC Executive is busy during the winter months. We meet once a month as an Executive group and we also have sub-committees that we are members of. I am learning that there is a lot of behind the scenes work involved with running a Yacht Club. Who knew?

However, it is not all work and no play! Social Officer Wendy Foote has done a great job of planning fun and informative winter activities so that we can gather with our mates and renew/form new friendships.

Being fairly new to the club, there are still a number of members who I have not yet met and I (and Mike, the better half) look forward to getting to know you in upcoming events or during the boating season.

Spring is right around the corner and with it comes Launch Day, April 29, 2017.



January 2017 - Greetings and welcome to the Secretary’s webpage at Cedar Island Yacht Club. If we aren’t already acquainted, I am pleased to meet you, electronically, that is!!
My responsibilities include administrative duties such as clubhouse bookings, taking minutes of meetings, distributing information, and maintaining the membership list – so be sure to keep me informed whenever there is a change to your contact information.
One of my goals is to establish electronic archives (current and historical) of CIYC records. So, if you have historical Club information that requires storing, please contact me - I would be happy to make an electronic copy for the records. Storing records electronically will provide a searchable archive and an easier transition for new Executives coming on board.
I am looking forward to serving the Club and its members. I can be reached by email at
secretaryciyc@gmail.com if you should require my assistance. I look forward to meeting you at one of the outstanding events that are planned for the upcoming year!


November 2016 - Greetings and welcome to the Secretary’s webpage at Cedar Island Yacht Club. I am just beginning to get my feet wet with sailing; having taken the Learn-to-Sail course just two years ago, and I also had a great time participating in Island Girls Sailing Adventure last year. We recently bought our first sailboat and are “learning the ropes” or the “lines” in sailboat lingo.
I am also “learning the ropes” in my new role as Secretary of Cedar Island Yacht Club. I hold a similar position in the business world which will help me accomplish my duties as Secretary. My responsibilities include taking care administrative duties such as clubhouse bookings, taking minutes of Executive meetings, distributing information as required, and maintaining the membership list – so be sure to keep me informed whenever there is a change to your records or contact information. I will also record the work hours for the membership and collect insurance information from boating members.
I am looking forward to serving the Club and its members. I can be reached by email at
Care1419@hotmail.com if you should require my assistance at any time. A great line up of activities is taking shape for the upcoming year and I am looking forward to meeting you at these events!
