The 60th Opening Day at BCYC was quite an event, complete with many boats in the marina dressed for the day, the 60th burgee waving proudly, a contingent of Marines in uniform, the Harbor Patrol fireboat providing a great display, and members and guests enjoying the awesome dock parties. All the cool stuff that makes BCYC such a special place was on display.

Many thanks to Kari Konapelsky and Director Rhonda Tolar and their committees for making this Opening Day a fantastic celebration. The teamwork and enthusiastic contributions from so many members made this a day to remember. Las Commodoras President Leslie Kazarian and her board members did a superb job of welcoming our many guests. General Manager, Scott Jones, and our wonderful staff made everything seamless. Relive memories of the 2018 Opening Day and enjoy the many pictures included in this edition of The Masthead and on the BCYC Flickr account.

Special recognition goes to Bruce Berglund, graphic artist and professional photographer. Bruce designed the BCYC 60th anniversary logo that appears on merchandise available in the Ship’s Store, bar napkins and the cover of the 2018 calendar. He also created the design on the banners that are now very visible around the club. Thanks, Bruce.

The club calendar in June and July is packed with fun events, including the Predicted Log challenge, Commodore’s Cruise, the start of Camp Corinthian, Cruise the Club Dock-up, Friday Burger Bash, Junior Staff Commodore’s Cruise and a Fourth of July, four-day Staycation. You don’t want to miss the Father’s Day celebration that features a car show complete with a seaplane that can be towed behind your boat, fabulous member-created art on display and a brunch that will be really, really good. All of this will get you ready for the BCYC 60th birthday party August 25.

he ramp leading to D, E and F docks will be replaced soon. The Board of Directors decided that the club would be best served by installing a new ramp. Thanks to the efforts of Staff Commodore Ted O’Connor, this work will be done with minimal disruption. The high-quality contractor who built the ramp near the hoist also did this job.
