Proposed Constitutional Amendment

In the past, we have had difficulty in getting the required quorum of members at our Annual & Semi-Annual Meetings of the Club. As such, we are proposing the following amendment to the BLYC Constitution to be considered at the 2019 Annual Meeting – Sunday, September 22, 2019

PLEASE ATTEND THE ANNUAL MEETING ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 SO THAT WE CAN CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING CHANGE

ARTICLE VIII, Section 3

Currently, the Constitution reads….

Twenty percent (20%) of the eligible voting members in good standing shall constitute the required quorum at any Regular or Special Meeting, and a simple majority shall determine the issue(s) involved, unless otherwise provided.

We propose the following change…

Ten percent (10%) of the eligible voting members in good standing shall constitute the required quorum at any Regular or Special Meeting, and a simple majority shall determine the issue(s) involved, unless otherwise provided.

I-LYA Traveler Series Regatta a Huge Success

This past Saturday, June 1st, Buckeye Lake Yacht Club hosted the kickoff to the 2019 I-LYA Traveler Series. Seventy-five youth sailors, aged 6-17, made the trip to Buckeye Lake, east of Columbus, and enjoyed a great day of racing. Buckeye Lake, after several years of low water, was back in top form with comfortable temperatures and steady southwest winds blowing 6-15 knots. Spectators lined the piers of BLYC and the new North Shore bike path to watch the racing up close. The series continues next week at Alum Creek Sailing Club in Lewis Center, Ohio and will continue throughout the summer with the finale at Hoover Sailing Club in August.

Thank you to all of the BLYC volunteers who made this event successful. It was truly a team effort and the comments from competitors, parents, and other visitors were very complimentary of the Club and the event.
