WiFi Towers & Dock Raising

Hi All,

On Saturday, the 25th of September, SSYC will be putting up WiFi towers around the club grounds. So if you have time, around 10:00 AM, please stop out & help. Should not take too long (I hope).

Also, the SSYC dock has been set to the winter time height. This is necessary to protect the docks against ice damage this Winter. We will be posting the list of low docks on our information boards on the east & west sides of the club. The SSYC dock is next to slip 180.

See you Saturday! Bill

No Fireworks at SSYC

Just a reminder that fireworks are strictly forbidden at SSYC. Boats are very flammable vehicles and any violation of this rule can result in a major violation and even expulsion from the club. We want everyone to enjoy the holiday but safety of our membership and the boats moored at the club comes first.

Simply enjoy the holiday at the public fireworks and your home.

Sincerely, SSYC BOD

2022 America’s Boating Club of Saginaw Bay Boat Safety Inspections

The 2022 America’s Boating Club of Saginaw Bay (formerly called Saginaw Bay Sail and Power Squadron) will be at SSYC for boat safety inspections summer. Sign up sheets will be posted for a boat inspection at the bath houses once a date is finalized. This is a good way to learn a little more about your boat and boating safely on the Saginaw Bay. It helps avoid (but not necessarily stops) those untimely  inspections by the Coast Guard too.  Hope you take advantage of this great opportunity.
