Stein Hospice Race and Fund Raiser a Success!

Beautiful weather, ample wind, and great friends came together for an amazing day of racing and fundraising for Stein Hospice.   The day’s activities began with twelve boats competing in two divisions.  The perfect summer breeze provided a spirited and quick race that allowed the crews to stow their gear and get cleaned up for the social that evening.

The members enjoyed a catered meal and enjoyed the great music from Suitcase Records, who will be back for Christmas in July at the marina…for more dancing on tables!

Overall the club raised $3,400 for Stein Hospice.  If you would like to learn more about this worthy organization or you would like to make a donation.  Check out their website by clicking here —->  Stein Hospice.

Good times on the Huron Cruise

by  Melanie Hitch

We had 12 boats (29 people) on the Huron Cruise and George Harizal joined us for dinner at the Huron Yacht Club Saturday evening.   We enjoyed a power boat show and free lunch from South Shore Marine.  My 2 year old grandson really like the small boat bouncing on the waves.  Of course great food was the highlight.   Sometimes I wonder if we are not an eating club that likes boats?

Navigating to the 2018 HBYC Events Listing

Having trouble finding the 2018 HBYC Events calendar listing?  It is easy to find if you know the way points!

The 2018 Events List is a page that is accessed from the menu.  The menu looks a little different based on the type of device you are using to access the website.  On large tablets or desktops the menu is a list of words across the top of the page “Home, Who We Are, What We Do, Find Us and Members Only”

On smaller tablets or smart phones the menu is three stacked lines in the top right hand corner of the screen. 


The 2018 Events Calendar is accessed from the “What We Do” menu. On smart phones the “What We Do” items has a little plus sign next to it. Click on that to expand the list and see the words “2018 Events Calendar”.

Here is a picture of what the menu looks like on a smartphone.



Safety First!

Late morning Monday, 14 May, a club member walked into the clubhouse to the strong smell of propane.  Fortunately, that member knew not to turn on any lights!  Upon investigation, it was found that a knob on one of the ranges was turned on but not ignited.  The situation was corrected and the clubhouse opened up to ventilate.

Just as we ask people to turn off lights, lock all doors, put the thermostat back on schedule, and generally secure the clubhouse when leaving, it is equally important to double check the ranges.  Even if you haven't used the kitchen to cook, it is relatively easy to accidentally turn a burner knob to allow gas to flow without ignition simply by leaning against the range while socializing or perhaps by wiping down the range during clean-up.  To my knowledge, it is the first time this has happened, but it is necessary to ensure it does not happen again.

Thanks for your consideration.
