Riverside Marina Update Summer is going great at the Riverside Marina! There is plenty of work to do to keep our shiny new marina looking perfect. The marina is less than a year old and has already gained a stellar reputation in the cruising community, as many visitors have told me. Each time a new transient guest arrives, they comment on how excellent our facilities are, how good the food is, and how wonderful the staff and members are. It is truly rewarding to be a part of the MIYC team.

I am happy to announce that we now have two marina attendants on our team as we gear up for a busy winter and spring season. John Hernandez is a sophomore at Lely High School and has been part-time at the club for three months. John has learned very fast and can already do most marina tasks without being told what to do. He can tie several knots, including the complicated Spanish Bowline that took me tons of practice. He got it on the first try! You’ll notice John’s exceptional manners and strong work ethic on the docks. Matt Bartos is our newest part-time team member and will join us full- time this Fall. At 20 years old, Matt is already a seasoned fisherman with countless hours offshore and in the backwaters on his boat. He plans to get his Captain’s license this Fall. Matt brings a wealth of fishing knowledge and experience to the table and looks forward to helping with fishing activities at MIYC this season. We miss seeing members hanging out on the dock after a sunset cruise or taking an after-dinner stroll, but we are planning some great waterfront activities for the upcoming season. Stay tuned for more info!
