MIYC Presentation & Blessing of the Fleet

The Presentat i on & Bl es s ing o f the F l ee t

By Roy Hershberger

After the Pledge of Allegiance and a very moving rendition of our National Anthem, MIYC Chaplin Alan Sandlin gave an especially appropriate Blessing. A moment of silence to remember those that passed this last year was followed by Taps, then the canon was fired to call in the fleet. Nineteen boats paraded past the MIYC Bridge and Past Commodores, who greeted them in full MIYC uniform with a hand salute. As the boats introduced themselves, their crews returned the salute and music for the Captain’s military affiliation was played. The colorful proceedings were witnessed by 50 people on shore. The Marco Island Police Boat followed the last vessel in, and then a delicious and plentiful Saturday afternoon lunch was served up by Chef Bob. One hundred and thirty people enjoyed the meal and friendship on the Club’s upper deck overlooking the water, listening to the music provided by Steve Reynolds, on what could not have been a more perfect day.

February 16, 2019 was another beautiful day for the Marco Island Yacht Club’s annual Blessing of the Fleet. The sky was clear and the winds less than 5 knots, just enough to flutter all the flags decorating the boats. Prior to the ceremony getting underway, the Marco Island Fire Boat, the “J.W. Adams”, directed everyone’s attention to the water with a barrage of water from their fire hoses. Commodore Jeff Comeaux then got the proceedings underway by introducing Past Commodores M.A. Harlacker, and Frank Rinker on shore plus Bob Winterhaulter on board “Sea Fari II”, Lois Dixon on board “Tri-Fun”, Randy Harris on board “Grand Pelican” and Jim Marr on board “Blue Moon”. He also introduced the 2019 Bridge Members Ray Rosenberg on board “Irish Miss”, Pete Frazier on board “Grand Pelican”, Trevor Hayworth on board “Irish Miss”, Geoff Walker, Dwyn Von Bereghy, Jill Kiley, Alan Sandlin, and Chuck Downton on shore.

! 3 Valentine’s Day Dinner & Dance

This year's Valentine's evening for Lovers of Fine Food and Music was very special. In addition to the superb dinner prepared by Chef, the 75 Members danced to the tunes of Joey Fiato, a South West Florida

well- known performer who kept us on our feet. Cocktails were served at the Point and the beautiful Marco evening made it a night worth remembering.

Dancing Under the Stars! On a gorgeous evening in February, Members and their guests gathered at the Burgee Bar for an evening of dining, dancing and celebrating! Not just because it was a lovely evening. Three Birthdays were also celebrated that night. Singer, Nevada led the group in singing Happy Birthday to Angela Holt, Irene Soden and the Marr’s friend, Nancy Brown. Chef Bob and his Staff served up a delicious meal and as always, Pam and the Crew did their best to make sure everyone had a wonderful time. And the new Fire Pits really added a nice touch!

Although it's been said that this year's game was not nearly as exciting as those in the past, you could not tell by the laughter at the MIYC. Some 54 Members were hootin' and hollerin' as the Patriots pulled off another victory. Chef's buffet dinner was something to cheer about, too.

Chairman’s Report

Club attributes as having a friendly and fun membership environment. But the camaraderie and friendships gained on these cruises through shared experiences and activities really cements the bond between our Members. And that is what makes our Club a great place to

Ellie and I participated in the February extended cruise! The cruise included stops in Boca Grande, Venice and Legacy Harbor in Fort Myers. About half a dozen boats from the Club took part in at least a portion of the Cruise, with nearly 20 Club members participating at some point along the way. The opportunity for Full and Equity members to participate in the Club’s ‘on water’ events is one of the key benefits we communicate to our prospective members. However, it is sometimes hard to describe why these ‘on water’ activities are so important to our membership. Being a part of the February cruise was a good refresher why Ellie and I enjoy these Club events so much! For those of you who have not been on an extended cruise for a while (or never experienced it), let me try to describe why it is such an important part of our overall Club’s membership experience. You do not need a boat to participate. We try to schedule cruises so that guests riding on boats can stay in hotels near the marinas we visit, or can meet up with us by arriving by car. Our Cruise Captains do an extraordinary job putting together itineraries that make the time spent at the various marinas filled with excursions and different activities that one can only enjoy from a cruise-based travel plan. And, the opportunity to see more of Florida’s ‘waterfront’ through the cruise stops is truly unique. But, I think the most valuable benefit is the ability to develop a much deeper relationship with the Members making the trip. We often describe one of our best

Dave Everitt Chairman

belong. We certainly have a great calendar of events (Thank you Angela Holt and the Member Events Committee!) And Friday Night Happy Hour is a great time to connect with friends at the Club. And, without a doubt, the Club is one of the best dining venues on the island. (Thank you, Chef Bob and the dining Staff!) But the deeper relationships built on Extended Cruises adds to a shared experience that enhances the benefits of Membership and Membership experience for all who participate in these Extended Cruises. I encourage you to find time to participate in one or more of our ‘on water’ events. Elsewhere in the Anchor Lines, we provide calendars and other information about upcoming cruises. Take a look at the cruise calendar and block time to participate. Those of us with boats are always happy to take someone along for the ride! Dave Everitt - Chairman

MIYC Mini Reef Program Helps Clean Our Canals We all love our Island Paradise and the beautiful waters we boat on. Doing what we can to keep our waters clean is a priority at Marco Island Yacht Club. That’s why we are promoting Ocean Habitats’ “Mini Reefs” to Members to be installed under your docks. We have three under our MIYC docks and dozens of Members are installing them, too. . Each reef establishes an ecosystem of aquatic life under the docks which mimics the environment normally found in the prop root system of mangrove trees. Once established, one reef can clean 30,000 gallons of water a day.

Ray Rosenberg Vice Commodore

As we get closer, watch for eblasts pertaining to the Sunset Cruise. To learn more, contact: Ray Rosenberg - Vice Commodore raymondhrosenberg@gmail.com Reservations for dinner - 239-394-0199

Sunset Cruises are very popular and enjoyed by our full and associate Members. The January 23 rd Cruise was a huge success, with 55 members crewing, and the February 27 th Cruise was over the top with 57 participants. A big thank you to our Captains: Everitts, Fraziers, Haworths, Marrs, O’Briens, Sandlins, Walkers and Wallens. Everyone enjoyed the pre-sail docktails and nibbles, and the voyage out and about the river to view dolphins and, only occasionally, cloud-covered sunsets. Everyone had fun. Upon returning to the marina, we all raced to the Club for more libations and an exquisite dinner prepared by Chef and his Staff. What was exceptional for both of these cruises, and will be repeated for future cruises, was that we all selected our menu choices earlier in the day before arriving at the docks, and the Boat Captains called them in to the Club. The dinner service went as smooth as silk. Chef said, “We will continue this welcomed process in the future.” Our next Sunset Cruise is scheduled for March 27 th . An advance email blast will be sent out announcing the event. Make sure you respond to me if you would like to participate raymondhrosenberg@gmail.com. DO NOT respond to one of the boat Captains or the Club receptionist or your neighbor next door 😊 because you could be left waiting on the dock. Once we develop the list of participants, boat assignments will be made and the menu from Chef Bob will be distributed. If you would like to volunteer your boat, or prefer to crew on a certain boat, please let me know. We aim to please and will definitely have another great, safe and fun time. BTW – Your MIYC Boating Committee is working on the daytime, lunchtime, fun time and Extended Cruising schedule for 2020 and beyond. If you have ideas and/or destinations you would like, please forward them to me so we can get them into the process. Thanks, and happy boating!

Mar ch wi l l be an awesome month, with our c i r cumnav i ga t i on mi d - month and two awesome Signature Events at the Club-- Mardi Gras on March 5 and a soulful Motown Party with the Greg Miller Band on March 23. There’s all that plus St. Pat’s, March Madness, and all our regular monthly activities

We have a terrific season underway, with wonderful activities on the water, at the Clubhouse and around the community! Our Blessing of the Fleet was a beautiful event with 19 boats participating and about 120 celebrating afterwards at a delicious luncheon at the Club featuring music by Steve Reynolds. Thanks to Roy Hershberger for coordinating this special event. A few days after the Blessing, many Members embarked on a fun-filled cruise to Boca Grande, Venice and the Legacy. The weather and seas were perfect and the camaraderie was even better! A special thanks goes out to Pete & Peggy Frazier for organizing the entire trip and for Jim Marr for navigation management during the journey. In addition, special thanks to the Rosenbergs, Everitts and Wallens for hosting a brunch and cocktail parties on their gorgeous vessels. Our Sunset cruise at the end of the month featured a cloudy evening, but the clouds made the spectacular pinks and corals spread even more dramatically across the sky. We got some TV publicity last month when Fox 4 in Naples interviewed Angela Holt and me about our beautiful Club. You can watch it here: https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gv-TV9dX3Q&t=6s

Jeff Comeaux Commodore

from Twilight Golf to the Fishing Club and Book Club. Mark your calendars for all these events and more! Finally, I’d like to call your attention to MIYC’s efforts on behalf of clean waters. Carol and I had our second Mini Reef installed under our dock to help build the marine ecosystem and promote cleaner canal water, as did numerous other Members. If you have a dock, please consider getting a Mini Reef installed and watch the increase in marine life in your back yard! Contact David Wolff at Ocean Habitats to order one yourself!

MIYCMember Events By Angela Holt

After a fabulous start to the ‘Season’ in Marco, we are heading into the busiest month of events for the Marco Island Yacht Club. The Mardi Gras being held on Fat Tuesday, March 5, is a perfect way to lead the parade. We will have masks, and beads, and feathers and more beads. There will be music and strutting along with prizes. The dinner promises to be a true reflection of New Orleans. On March 11, don’t forget to sign up for the Beach Party. And, Wine and Dine, the finest of all dinner events follows on Wednesday, March 13. On Friday, March 15, we will have a St. Patty’s Day Happy Hour with a bean bag toss in the court yard. Chef will serve his famous corned beef and cabbage as a special menu item. You won’t want to miss Music Trivia on March 16 th . Here’s a chance for you music lyric lovers to dine, dance and in-between name that tune. So it will be a Saturday evening with a twist. March Madness is our basketball contest held in the court yard while cocktails are being served. This always proves to be a blast. The

women and men compete for prizes. The Signature Event

this year is Motown on Saturday, March 23. Greg Miller will join us with his 5 piece band and we will light up the Club. We will be dancing upstairs at the Pointe, downstairs at the Burgee and in the courtyard. Dress the part if you choose. Come as a diva, wear a mini, big hair and glitz. Look for the eblast with ‘attire’ suggestions. This will be an All-Club celebration. The first time we’ve tried it. Don’t miss it. The last Saturday of the month, March 30, we will hear the mellow tones of Nevada as we close out March with Dancing Under the Stars. So March came in ’ Like a Lion’ and goes out the same way.

Safety & Training Officer

A Neat Ship is a Safe Ship Improperly stowed gear can not only be unsightly but can damage your equipment and become a tripping hazard or worse. It isn’t fun to watch loose gear get caught in the wind and blown overboard. A cluttered deck is particularly dangerous in rough seas if loose gear is sliding around the deck. I hate reaching for a line that is fouled into a tangled mess. If you don’t have a line locker, it is easy to install a board with hooks on the inside of the gunwales to hang your coiled lines. Having those lines handy, life jackets at the ready, fire extinguishers mounted in a strategic spot, first aid kit close by in a dry location, and anchor line clear for instant use, are all little things that can help a rapid response to a developing situation. In the big picture of boating safety , properly stowed gear might seem a trivial issue, but I know of incidents that bring home its importance. In one case, a man and woman aboard a

Trevor Haworth Safety & Training Officer

40-foot pleasure craft were about to tow a smaller boat. While the woman was preparing the tow line, there was a slack length lying on the deck. She inadvertently stood amidst the loose line. As the towing boat started to move, this line coiled around her leg and lifted it into the air. This unfortunate deck hand took a severe fall and suffered an extreme injury. In another incident, three men were out for a day of fishing. At one point, they decided to move to another location. They pulled the anchor on board and left it lying on the bow above anchor locker. As the boat came up on plane, it bounced over a wave and the anchor slipped unnoticed back into the water. As the line played out, the anchor temporarily set on something. When the force of the boat caused the anchor to release, it catapulted forward toward the boat, and sank the shank of the anchor into the back of the head of an unlucky fisherman. Fortunately, the crew knew enough leave the anchor in the skull and radioed ahead. At the dock they were met by emergency medical teams and the injured man was air-lifted to a hospital where the anchor was safely removed. It is hard to imagine that these severe injuries would take place. Unfortunately, there are a myriad of potential accidents lurking amongst your poorly stowed equipment. Don’t be the one to discover a new bizarre story. Keep your gear stowed safely! Remember the old saying; “A place for everything, and everything in its place.” Lt. Bill Hempel, Marketing/Public relations Committee USPS. CPR/AED Training Fourteen boat captains and spouses attended the CPR/AED/First Aid training at Marco Fire-Rescue on Feb 12. Held by two Fire/EMS professionals, the three your course gave us the essential skills needed to provide first support in the minutes before the emergency services arrive. CPR techniques have been refined over the years, so it’s important for those who have had training in the past to re-certify as the next opportunity. And for most of us, this was the first time we had been exposed to AED operation, the costs of which have become affordable. It’s well worth considering having a portable model for afloat and home – available on Amazon for less than $2,000. Due to the popularity of this course, we have arranged another for April 25 th .

MIYC Book Club Thursday, March 28 th - Noon - 1:30 PM Please join us for our March Book Club Luncheon Presented by Deb DeVries

Book Summary A timely novel that interweaves past and present to explore the human capacity for resiliency and compassion in times of great upheaval. Willa Knox has always prided herself on being the embodiment of responsibility for her family. Which is why it's so unnerving that she's arrived at middle age with nothing to show for her hard work and dedication but a stack of unpaid bills and an inherited brick home in Vineland, New Jersey, that is literally falling apart. The magazine where she worked has folded, and the college where her husband had tenure has closed. The dilapidated house is also home to her ailing and cantankerous Greek father-in-law and her two grown children: her stubborn, free- spirited daughter, Tig, and her dutiful debt-ridden, ivy educated son, Zeke, who has arrived with his unplanned baby in the wake of a life-shattering development.

MIYC on Facebook Don't forget to 'like' our page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ yachtingmarco to see what's happening at MIYC. (You do not need to join Facebook to like our page.) If you are a member of Facebook, feel free to "Check-in" when you're attending events and to share our posts with your friends! You can also “tag” the Club when you post events you attend. Brilliantly executed and compulsively readable, Unsheltered is the story of two families, in two centuries, who live at the corner of Sixth and Plum, as they navigate the challenges of surviving a world in the throes of major cultural shifts. In this mesmerizing story told in alternating chapters, Willa and Thatcher come to realize that though the future is uncertain, even unnerving, shelter can be found in the bonds of kindred—whether family or friends—and in the strength of the human spirit. Our remaining selections, dates, and presenters are: Date Presenter Book Title April 26 Sharon Lake Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine May 30 Carol Comeaux Educated All Members are welcome at the Book Club luncheons. Even if you did not have a chance to read the book, you can learn a lot and enjoy intriguing conversations about life. Men are welcome, too! Reservations - 239-394-0199 In an act of desperation, Willa begins to investigate the history of her home, hoping that the local historical preservation society might take an interest and provide funding for its direly needed repairs. Through her research into Vineland's past and its creation as a Utopian community, she discovers a kindred spirit from the 1880s, Thatcher Greenwood. A science teacher with a lifelong passion for honest investigation, Thatcher finds himself under siege in his community for telling the truth: his employer forbids him to speak of the exciting new theory recently published by Charles Darwin. Thatcher's friendships with a brilliant woman scientist and a renegade newspaper editor draw him into a vendetta with the town's most powerful men. At home, his new wife and status-conscious mother-in-law bristle at the risk of scandal, and dismiss his financial worries and the news that their elegant house is structurally unsound.

The key offshore will be fishing in 110-125 feet of water. Large Red Grouper (over 30 inches) can be caught in these areas. Backwater fishing will quickly improve as the shallow water warms up and the Trout, Snook and Redfish become more active. The Fishing Club is planning their 2 nd annual trip to Islamorada to fish for Tarpon. This year, we will likely add another day for Mahi fishing in the Gulf Stream. More to follow via eblast. Thanks, Jeff Comeaux - MIYC Commodore comeaux411@icloud.com February fishing in the Marco Island area was very good. For those who fished offshore, we found a good bite 45 miles out in 90-110 feet of water. Tom Morrison caught several Kingfish in the 48 inch range trolling, Jeff Comeaux caught several Barracuda in the 48 inch range and Geoff Walker had a good catch of Grouper. In the backwater area, Jill Kiley caught a 50+ lb. Black Drum near Coon Key on a jig tipped with shrimp.

Bob Aylwin - Manager/Executive Chef

Ahoy Members of MIYC. A big thank you to all for the great support shown throughout the early season here at the Club! Our membership numbers are strong and I have had the pleasure of meeting several trial members who were collectively seemed pleased with our food, service and their overall Club experience. Let’s remember to keep extending our hands, introducing ourselves and providing the warm welcome that trial members and new members alike have become accustomed to. This has been the most active season I have been a part of since joining your team in 2013. Membership participation coupled with a management team focused on creating a friendly atmosphere and delightful culinary experience, has been the key to our recent successes. Your Food and Beverage team realizes the challenges of the busy season and we are always trying to give the best food and service at all times. Please help us continue our growth by participating in our monthly Food and Beverage surveys. It really does make us stronger. Outside Banquet functions continue to spread the word about our “new and improved” clubhouse facilities, creating an atmosphere of good will that should turn into more MIYC members and continual growth in our outside catering business. Please join us on March 13 for our “Join the Family” Wine and Dine dinner, a five course culinary adventure highlighted by the great wines of Goldschmidt Vineyards. Nick Goldschmidt / Winemaker will take you through his travels, creating wines in over 9 countries. If you haven’t expressed your passion for world class wines lately, this is the event for you! Remember to make your reservations early and often. See you at the Club! Bob Aylwin Manager/Executive Chef
