Commodore’s Spring Greeting 2021
I hope this message finds you well and that winter has been good to you under the circumstances.
Another boating season is about to begin. Spring started with a couple of warm sunny days to get us in the mood. Our AGM was scheduled for this spring but as we are not able to gather, an email will be forthcoming advising of executive details and other important facts. Our executive has met by zoom meetings over the winter in anticipation of summer 2021 club events. However, we are once again facing Covid restrictions, which has affected us in creating a social calendar at this time. We have still continued with our ILYA membership. We are planning some anchoring get togethers and cruising to Canadian ports.
Sadly, the owners of Keara II, Frank and Lorraine, lost their sailboat in the November storm but they're back with a power boat this year.
As some of you are aware, there has been some discussion of the Norfolk County selling the marina. A committee has been formed, consisting of Marina patrons, our club members, and other concerned Norfolk residents to keep abreast and communicate with the county.
Long Point Bay Yacht Club is still a strong organization of friendly boaters. Thank you for supporting our club. We look forward to the season ahead of us.
Wishing you health and safety on the water and in your homes.

This allows our members to enjoy the hospitality of the member clubs on a reciprocal basis.
