HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA - Another family fun day at MYC celebrating the birth of this great country starting with the Larry Lawrence Memorial Pancake Breakfast, served up by our own Dennis Dubuc and Rick and Nina Hamilton. Ron Alman led us on a parade of sail with our boats decked out in red-white-and-blue, followed by lots of water fights and a game where we picked up numbered balls from the water using anything on board - fishnets, hats, buckets. Back on shore, Leila and Jackie McNeff had a fun Bingo game waiting for us, using, you probably guessed it, the numbers from the balls we picked up. Everybody was a winner of fun prizes, the best of which was ice cream for everybody.
Laser Fleet Team Racing - The Laser Fleet held Team Races on 6/30/2012 with 12 boats - 4 teams of 3 each. They raced a whopping 18 races then finished up with a regular Laser fleet race.
