Thursday Parking Update

Both lots are open and accessible from the west. The lower east (crew) lot will be reserved for WYC crew members with current membership stickers, and guests will be directed to the top lot (space permitting). The upper lot is drying out and in better shape than last week, however, it is still a good idea to bring along a set of old shoes for the walk.

As always, please do not park in the Village shops lots or on residential streets in front of houses.

Roundings

We are excited to bring you this series called Roundings where we will review the incredible history of our club. In each issue we will share an excerpt from one of the stories we are compiling that focus on our history, culture and how each of these influential members had a vision for the future. From the inception of the WYC there has been a core cultural commitment to be focused on racing, with a dedication to fun; the tag line to our 50th celebration.

Roundings will take us from the start and build on how each member’s involvement has supported our campaign to meet the next 50 years of challenges.

We hope you enjoy these essays as we look to where we have been, how we have been influenced by that legacy and where it will take us.

Remember to tell us your story so that it too can be known as part of our history. To do so, please visit http://history.wyc.org/Survey and fill in your most favorite moments. We look forward to seeing your uploaded images you collected over the years too!

Randy Gould, Commodore

2015 Commodore's Letter Addressing 50th Anniversary

Dear Member:

We are excited to announce that 2015 is the 50 Year Anniversary of Racing at the WYC!  A core group have been busy coordinating this yearlong celebration and collecting information related to our history. 

Legacy

Last fall we established a committee with the primary goal to gather information that documents the history of our club.  This collection of personal stories, key milestones, and other documentation was started by bringing together the founders of our club.  Their essays will be released over the year to give us a widening perspective of our unique history and tell a story of how a few individuals’ interest in sailing out of Wayzata Bay resulted in the incredibly diverse membership focused on competitive sailing.

We know that this background is only a small part of who we are and that is why we will be looking to you, our members, to help us tell the full story.  We have developed an area within the WYC website dedicated to capturing special moments.  Here you will find a brief survey that will help us understand better why the WYC is important to you and how you came to this club to enjoy sport.  Please take a moment to share those thoughts at http://history.wyc.org/Survey.  With only a few minutes of your time, we will be able to enrich our half century story and capture the culture that drives our membership.  In this survey you will find links to a blog where you may also download images that we will archive.

Events

In appreciation of our members and their commitment to our club’s success, we have an exciting year in store with scheduled events all based around this 50 year celebration: 

 §        Our Spring Kick-off will bring us together to meet and greet new members

 §        The Bob Slocum Family Regatta will be themed to celebrate multi-generations of family and friends who come together in competition and fun

 §        Wine on Wayzata Bay will be hosted in support the Wayzata Community Sailing Center and the skills they teach for our sports longevity

 §        Participation in the James J Hill Days celebrating our involvement in this community

 §        A 50th Celebration race events and Regatta this fall, epitomizing the reason we exist

 §        Ending the year with a fabulous wrap-up at our Annual Banquet

 Watch for announcements in the WeatherMark for information about each of these celebratory events.

Commemoration

We have in the making great items that will memorialize this year’s milestone; branded gear, limited addition wine, documents that tell our story and many other items, all denoted with a unique 50 year logo. 

With so much going on, we want you all to know that there are many opportunities to get involved.  If interested, please feel free to let us know when you fill out the survey.  So, congratulations on 50 years of great sailing and community building; we look forward to what the next 50 will bring!
