PAN AM Fever has arrived at KYC!
July 9, 2015
Attention Dry Mooring Holders:
Current stickers have been placed on all member boats that have been registered with the main office. However, there is a handful of boats in the yard and on the breakwall we could not tie to a registration.
If you (or someone you know) has not registered a boat with the office please fill out this form and drop in to see us to obtain a 2015 sticker.
If you are unsure if you have registered with the office please contact us to confirm.
Boats without valid stickers will be moved out of the dry storage area in to a 'lock-up' by Friday, July 17th. Boats remaining in the lock-up area at the beginning of August will be moved to an off-site storage location at owner's expense.
If you have any questions about this process please do not hesitate to contact us.
Starting next month, KYC will be sending all members an account statement email. This includes those who currently get paper statements through lettermail. The statement email will serve as a reminder to review your account activity and make a payment if necessary.
If you are happy with this statement delivery method and no longer wish to receive paper statements please contact the office.
Online account statements are up-to-date, interactive views of your financial activity at KYC. They provide detailed chit information as well as historical data.
You may review your statements at any time by going to:
www.kingstonyachtclub.com/memberdesktop and choosing "My Account" from the "Quick Links" bar on the left hand side of the page.
If you have never used this service before, your login information and password is your member number (i.e. M992). You may change your password once you have logged in by choosing "My Profile".
In addition to account statements you can also access the member roster and view detailed wind data from Sailflow (generally a paid service).
If you forget your password or are having trouble using this service please contact the office.
Bring on the Bay!
We wish KYC Member Mary Westerland the best in her 3 km open water swim from Nepean Yacht Club to Britannia Yacht Club on on July 11th. The swim is meant to raise money for Easter Seals.

Picton Jazz Festival Cruise
This year’s cruise to Picton features an exclusive KYC wine tour on Saturday, August 15th. Of course, we will participate in the usual Jazz Festival events that take place around town over the weekend. Our group theatre event is planned for Friday, August 14th with a dinner arrangement at 6:00 (usually a BYO event catered by Miss Lily’s Café – still to be confirmed) followed by the 8:00 show. The performance features Guido Basso and vocalist Shakura S’Aida. You can find more information about the show at
www.pecjazz.org (under “Performers”)
Theatre tickets are $38 each and the Friday dinner is expected to be about $30 (tax & gratuity included). A number of boats will be heading west on Thursday to either Stella Bay or Prinyers Cove and then continuing to Picton on Friday. If your schedule is better suited to a Saturday night show instead, we would still encourage you to join the cruising group on arrival, simply arrange your own tickets by contacting the Regent Theatre Box Office (877-411-4761 x 28)
This year we will be offering a “full day” Saturday wine tour through the County. We expect to visit at least five wineries: Norman Hardie, Karlo Estates, Sandbanks, Hinterland and Three Dog Winery. We will have private transportation and the expertise of sommelier, Ian Nichols. This will take place on Saturday, August 15th (with lunch included) for a total cost of $100 per person (tax and gratuity included).
Please contact James at email@example.com soon, to reserve your jazz and wine tickets. Space is limited!
We also have a new chardonnay availble this week from Redstone Winery in Niagara, the latest venture of reknowned Canadian winemaker, Moray Tawse.
Summer Food and Wine Pairing Dinner
August 29th at Jemmet's landing, KYC will be hosting our long-awaited summer wine-dinner. Chef Neil will be creating a delicious menu of local food to be paired with some of the best wines Ontario has to offer. Stay tuned for more details.
