Knotmeter - July 5, 2013


Friday, July 12th

In case you missed the first one, the goal here is to get non-boaters
on the water for an enjoyable evening on the lake!

If you are interested in participating email Glenn at and indicate whether you are a boater or non-boater or sign up at the office or bar. The evening will cap off with social time, munchies, food special etc!

Harbour Redevelopment Update

Thanks to everyone who attended the Harbour Design Town Hall meeting on July 3rd. The preferred harbour design
was presented and discussed with members who contributed valuable feedback. This feedback will be used during the next
iteration of the design process.

We will be continuing to work with Shoreplan Engineering to refine and improve the proposed design. Please keep
watching the Knotmeter and website ( for updates as this progresses.

The New Harbour website can be found here:
Any questions related to the project should be directed


It is time to ensure that all boats on the breakwall and in the yard are suitably registered with the main office.

 If you have registered your boat then please make sure you have attached the current year's transom sticker to your boat.

 If you have not registered your boat then please do so at the main office at which time you will be issued a transom sticker.

BBQ Area

For members that like to barbecue their own food at the club the barbecue for this activity is now located at the east end of the breakwall beside the tent that was recently moved to that area. Barbecue utensils are available at the bar. With regard to alcohol, this is a non-licensed area.

The new tent and patio area adjacent to the clubhouse is full-service. Please c’mon down and check it out. Our staff would love to serve you!

Message from the Commodore

Our sailing season has finally begun and as you've started gravitating back towards the water and our Clubhouse, I’m sure you've noticed some changes. Members of the Board of Directors, including those focused on Membership and House, and Club management have been working together to improve the experience that the Club provides to its members, particularly those members without boats. In addition, we’re also looking to encourage members to come down and use their Club and support the food & beverage operations. A vibrant and healthy Club is one that is full of members taking advantage of the facilities and services and fully enjoying themselves and the company of their fellow members....Click here to read more.

Sharks for Sale

The Club is selling two Sharks from its fleet and will use the money toward the purchase of a replacement in better condition. These two Sharks will be moved offsite this week and will be for sale for $1250 each. Both boats are in fair condition and need some TLC. Both include a mast and rudder and a 2-Stroke engine. 
Trailers are not included.
They are priced to move and would make excellent project boats.

August 16, 17, 18 Picton Jazz Cruise Weekend

For information contact John Kitney,

The block of tickets that was purchased by KYC have all sold out! If you are still planning on joining the cruise you will need to purchase tickets directly from the festival.

For details of this years’ Jazz Festival program visit

You don’t have to be a jazz enthusiast to enjoy the Picton weekend sail and related activities. This KYC Cruisers’ event has been running since 2008 and participation peaked about two years ago with 40 club members and friends. For those that can make it to the Picton Harbour on Friday we will arrange a restaurant outing together. For Saturday evening (after our “boaters and friends happy hour”) we plan to have a catered group meal (about $25 per person), after which ticket holders can head over to the Regent for the show. The town is pretty, the sailing is fun, the company is superb - and the Saturday night show this year should have wide audience appeal.
