Looking to Get On a Boat This Summer?
Come to the Rockland Yacht Club’s Crew Match Party
It is time to go sailing and the upcoming Crew Match Party is just the place to find a boat, or find crew, if you have a boat and want helpers along. This free, festive gathering is designed to introduce boatowners to potential sailors, and want-to-be sailors to potential boats for the summer. Some of the boatowners are looking crew for the Rockland Yacht Club’s weekly Tuesday night races, but some others will be looking for weekend racing crew, or just weekend crews for day sails. And there may be others looking for crew for longer trips. You just never know what will happen at a crew match party, some come join the fun June 17. If you have questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
NEW MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS The Rockland Yacht Club has also announced a new, Junior Membership for young families to join. Membership cost are minimal for those under 40, and includes launch services. The club will also be hosting an open house in addition to the crew match party, so if you are just curious, come on cover! Bring your family and join us so you can get on the water this summer.
