YAM Holiday Gathering a Jolly Success!

Social Events

This past Saturday approximately thirty members and their guests rallied for Richmond's annual Christmas Parade, followed shortly thereafter by a warm holiday gathering hosted by YAM Committee Members Arch and Katie Durham. Despite a little mist in the air attendance was strong at the parade where children were elated to see the 'Big Guy in Red' welcome them with waving arms and joyous cheer. The gathering afterwards was absolutely wonderful...a beautifully decorated home packed full of tasty holiday treats and seasonal beverages for all to share.  Sincerest thanks to all who came to enjoy the day and especially to our gracious host family, the Durhams!

I am completely amazed how rich the "Corinthian spirit" has been at our club and how many members are volunteering for our upcoming two day regatta.  After a year of being bound by a computer our kids finally have the opportunity to be on the water again to represent our amazing sailing program and club.  We are hosting the Virginia State Championship which is also the season opener for CBYRA.  With registration open for about a month we have been successfully amassing an army of volunteers to serve over 100 sailors along with their family and friends.  As far as the eye can see will be an armada of kids geared and ready to give it their all June 26-27th …
