Boys & Buoys/Gals & Gales

Slider

Boys & Buoys/Gals & Gales, an MCYC group that meets on the last Tuesday of the month. All members and friends/family are invited to gather to share their boating ideas, camaraderie and hear speakers on marine topics from sail maintenance, to caring for the cushions on your boat, to galley recipes, to engine tinkering and more. A couple of great off-site visits are often on the schedule.. The B&B/G&G team currently consists of: Co-Founders Scott Gerber and Dave Tuck, Lee Stern, Alex DiMartini, and Marilyn Gerber. And, of course, there is always plenty of non-speaker time to shoot the breeze about whatever other topics come up.

Join us at our “shore-side raft-ups!” Grab your significant other, curious sailing friend and other crew for fun, informal evenings with your fellow sailors. We look forward to seeing you.
