“TO PROVIDE A MEANS FOR CLOSE FREQUENT INTERACTION AND MUTUAL SUPPORT AMONG MEMBER YACHT CLUBS”
In support of this objective, YCM has represented member clubs on their behalf by actively appearing on legislative matters in Annapolis and serving as their voice and ears to outside organizations and government agencies, supported our princesses and the Queen of the Chesapeake, worked to resolve issues raised by the members such as waterway clean up and improving the Queen’s Pageant, maintain a community “bulletin board” website that includes club events, protocol advice, member and boating information and notices, flyers, YCM newsletter links, useful links, and pictures from yachting related activities, hold monthly meetings at member clubs to allow open engagement by the members to pursue ideas, plans, and issues.
In addition, we publish the BAY BREEZE, a monthly newsletter, including guest columns, to keep member clubs informed of events, issues, yacht club protocol, legislation, meetings, and the latest YCM activity. We also publish the annual SHIP’S LOG, a yearbook that provides not only contact information, but useful details about each member club, club related advice, and photos of the recent year’s commodores, princesses, and activities. Through these publications, clubs are able to share a hearty “Welcome Aboard” and provide key information for land and sea visits among the members.
