Enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow Fifty Point Yacht Club boaters at some of the finest clubs on Western Lake Ontario.
For each cruise we will require a volunteer cruise captain(s) to be a point of contact for FPYC boats going on the cruise and to receive any last minute change information from, or about the destination club. The cruise captain volunteer will have a guaranteed reservation on the cruise, regardless of when they reserve.
The cruise captain might host a pre-cruise meeting, usually scheduled on Saturday morning of the cruise weekend. At the meeting, the captain shares any instructions or other information from the host club (calling-in instructions and/or dock assignments), distributes the cruise list, assigns a radio channel for boaters and gets agreement on a fleet departure time for those planning to travel together.
On arrival the cruise captain checks with the Dock Master or Officer of the Day at the host club to make sure everything has gone according to plan with slip assignments and to determine where the group can get together for any group events. Cruise captains who wish to organize other activities, especially on long weekends, are encouraged to do so.
The cruise sign up will open on June 1. Please make sure you submit your renewal membership or new membership application by June 1, or by May 15 to receive the early bird rate. Registration details will be coming soon and will follow in a separate email to members.
FPYC has a cap of 15 boats per cruise. To make cruises as accessible as possible to all members, registration for 3 of the posted cruises will be allowed. There will wait lists for cancellations for over subscribed dates.
Please check your calendars and consider carefully the cruises you sign up for. This reduces the last minute work involved in cancellations, multiple slip assignment changes, substitutions and many emails by dock masters and cruise directors at both FPYC and our destination clubs.
