Commodore’s Blog – April 2019

Q on Bay Cruise Capt. Bill Krebs

The Q on Bay cruise, led by Capt. Bill Krebs, was an outstanding success. 12 boats and 65 participants. Cruise activity continues with the Beaufort Air Show, followed by the overnight cruise to Charleston.

Kayak trips are in full swing – we have a couple planned in rapid succession. The kayak loaner list is on-line now, so if you would like to borrow a kayak, check out the website for more information.

The first fishing trip was delayed due to bad weather, but has been rescheduled.

Don’t forget the upcoming Pig Pickin’ at the Gazebo on May 6th. Sign-up now for this event as it usually sells out. The Ship’s Store will be open during the event, so bring your cash or checks. Lots of new and interesting merchandise is available.

All DIYC activities are posted in the calendar on our website ( Registration forms can be found there as well. To log onto the member side of the site, use the password on the back of your DIYC membership.

You do not have to have a boat or kayak to participate in our on water activities. Most cruises and trips allow for non-vessel owners to attend when space is available. So check out the registration forms for that option when the e-mail event notices are sent out.

New Members Reception

We held our new member meet and greet at the gazebo this week. 25 new members attended. A worthwhile event by all accounts, the purpose being to explain what the board does and how new members can get engaged.

The Board of Governors agreed to support the Pledge the Pink event being held on Dataw Island on Oct. 26th. Planning has begun. See my recent e-mail for more information.

In addition to Pledge the Pink, the DIYC is supporting Camp Dataw again this year. Our thanks to Cheryl Johnson for leading our efforts here.

If you have pictures of a DIYC event, please send to Louise Moses ( Louise will get them posted to our website for all to enjoy.

Smooth sailing and safe boating all.
