Navy, I have some exciting news.  This weekend at Pensacola Yacht Club, Navy YC, along with 7 other GYA Yacht Clubs (PYC, Point, Southern, Pensacola Beach, Fort Walton, Buccaneer,  +1) competed for the GYA Fish Class Championship, with the John G. Curren Trophy going to the winner. Navy YC's team of Fleet Captain Mark Smith, Tom Whitehurst and Bert Rice, Jr. sailed all three races, rotating skipper duties, and switching boats after each race.  They finished 7th, 1st, and 2nd in their three races, which tied PYC's point total. But, Navy won the tie-breaker by finishing higher than PYC in the third race.

Congrats to Mark and his entire team for winning this prestigious Regatta. Pictured in the first photo below (L-R) are Mr. John G. Curren, Bert Rice, Jr., Past Commodore Nikki Ferry (PYC), Fleet Captain Mark Smith, and Tom Whitehurst.  The second photo has the same folks minus Mr. Curren.

October is almost over and Thanksgiving, Commodores Ball and Christmas are just rapidly approaching. So start planning now.

The next General Membership meeting is on Thursday, November 4th starting at 1730. During this meeting the slate of officers for 2021 will be voted on.
We will also have the beautiful silver Fish Championship trophy on display.  So please come out and help us celebrate the second great sailing achievement by NYCP this year.  As you may recall, we won the Navy Cup in June, also. Hope to see you all on November 4th.



Don't forget to make plans to attend this year's Commodore's Ball to be held on December 10th, at the Hilton Garden Inn Airport/Medical Center.  Invitations will go out in October with responses due by November 29.  We look forward to a great time of celebration and thankfulness for a year back on the water and seeing all of you through these challenging times. 

May you all be blessed with Fair Winds and Following Seas,
