As you begin the month of May, here are a few thoughts to consider: enjoy life…give back…be safe!

Enjoy Life – One way to enjoy life is to sail in BCYC’s Taco Tuesday evening race series, which run thru August 25. Taco Tuesdays, featuring multiple weeks of racing, eating, drinking and partying all rolled into one, is now scheduled to begin June 2. 

Give Back – We are planning to run all of our Leukemia Cup Regattas for Harbor 20s, PHRF and Farr 40s August 7-9. This is a date change for only the Harbor 20s – they were originally scheduled to race May 31. BCYC has raised over $1 million to support research into finding a cure for leukemia and lymphoma. Race entry fees, individual donations and team donations all add up…so be generous…give back!

Be Safe – Whether the stay-at-home order is still in force or we have returned to the water, it’s still a good idea to listen to Mom – eat chicken noodle soup, wash your hands frequently and get plenty of rest, even if you are tired of resting.
