Work Parties, Regattas, Eagle Watch, Plein Air Painting, Your Party ...
Social Info
At the heart of PYC’s success is our scheduled Work Parties and the tried-and-true members who keep the club shipshape. But after the work is done and the club is officially opened at our Commissioning in May, PYC is all about having FUN! and enjoying the challenges of wind and wave and this special place on the planet!

Work Parties
"To keep costs down, do the work yourself."
"Many hands make light work.

Following this prudent advice and led by a dedicated cadre of veteran members, PYC Work Parties get what needs to be done ... Done! From installing docks and maintaining the clubhouse to boat repair and road maintenance, it all gets done so each season can be enjoyed by all.

Mark your calendar and join us for fresh air and rewarding work. It's a party, so wear your water-proof dancin' boots and bring your camera and binoculars ... you never know what wonders nature has in store. (Coffee, donuts, home-baked pies and muffins will reward your efforts.)
