Help plan summer trips and events during these Saturdays also. Looking for people to organize and lead at least one trip. If you have a favorite destination that you’d like to share with other members, please let us know.
Full Moon Sails
Sail from the SHYC dock for an hour or two on Penobscot Bay and back. Full moon sails are dependent upon clear skies. Quite often the wind is light to nonexistent, but it is still beautiful to be out in the harbor and bay during a full moon. These sails may also happen on the weekend closest to the full moon, or spur of the moment due to weather conditions.
Everyone is welcome to attend our SHYC Open Board Meeting every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6PM.
Come check us out and join in the fun!
As a SHYC member, you can reserve our fine establishment for your special function. This includes the convenience of a fully equipped kitchen.
