Boats In – Spring Launch 2022
Apr 15 @ 7:00 am

Let the season begin! Crane day is FRIDAY, April 15.

  • If there is any change in the schedule, you’ll be notified. If you don’t hear anything, there is no change.
  • If your boat is being launched, you or a representative must be there to pilot it from the crane to your slip. Know where your sling points are, and mark them with painter’s tape if there is any question. Have your dock lines and fenders at the ready. Charge your batteries, and check your drain plugs.
  • Please follow directions from members in charge. Safety is our number one priority. Dress for the weather, with sturdy shoes and gloves.
  • NO alcoholic drinks anywhere near where boats are launched.
  • If you are not helping launch the boats, please stay out of the way, and keep cars clear of the crane area.
  • Remove your stands, debris and litter A.S.A.P. after boats are in, and keep the grass area clear for mowing.

An SRYC tradition. Celebrate the first summer holiday weekend by serving a beverage and snack on your dock and sampling all the others.  A little bit like an open house and dock walk rolled into one. Good times!

Wide Waters Blessing of the Fleet 2022
May 29 @ 1:00 pm
This special event is held every year on the water at Buffalo Rock. Cruise up river and take the side channel around Sheehan Island to scenic Buffalo Rock. There is plenty of room for boats to anchor with a beautiful view of the sandstone bluffs. Clergy will give the blessing from atop a houseboat anchored near the bluffs. Tune in via marine radio VHF channel 68 to hear the blessing.
A good blessing never hurts! Bring your boat (or dingy, canoe, kayak, etc) or cruise along with friends. Here’s to a healthy and safe boating season.
