CR-914 News ....
- OK, I have a big problem with the page one cover
article! <br><br> The North Cove Knee Deep MYC should not
be receiving press like this in the CR-914 News
Letter. Why? Well, they are not a model yacht club what
so ever. They are a YACHT club that does NOT accept
outside AMYA members to join them. You must be a member
of the North Cove YACHT Club in order to sail with
them. <br> <br> About two years ago I called them and
asked if I could join them. I was new to the CR-914 at
that time, being from CT, they were the only club in
CT. that sailed this class. I was informed by Knight
Merrit, who by the way is a very nice guy as most of the
people there are, that I could come down and join them
for one day, but I should be looking else where for a
club to join. Well, I went down there and enjoyed a
great day of sailing. They have a great spot on a
sheltered harbor. I proceeded to win most of the races and
ended up coming in second place. No ribbon was offered,
nor did they care to even acknowledge the fact that I
did so. That was OK, but what bothered me most was
the fact that they just sent me on my way and said,
�good luck finding a club.�<br> So, to the point here.
I do feel that giving a club that one has no chance
of joining and is not even recognized by the AMYA a
front page write-up is wrong. It should not be on the
cover of an AMYA recognized news letter that in fact is
written by the AMYA CR-914 class secretary. <br><br> I
only hope that because of this �press� that the North
Cove Yacht Club will start to open it�s doors to AMYA
members that wish to join their Knee Deep MYC. <br><br>
