The 2015 Boating Season is Here!!

By: IBYC, 5:39 PM GMT on May 17, 2015

The finishing touches are underway as we speak to ready the waterfront for it's opening day of May 22nd. See the clubs website for complete launch schedule (I've placed a link to our site below on this page under 'Recommended Links').

The waterfront, out of necessity, has seen a lot of very involved improvement projects which bumped up our start date a bit this year. So we would like to thank all the boating members for their patience and understanding.

On-board property security

By: IBYC, 4:12 PM GMT on August 29, 2014

Recently a portable fuel tank (full of fuel) was stolen from one of our members small Whalers. No need to feel that security in the IBYC mooring field is an issue, as these types of occurrences are very rare. The last incident I can remember is a fishing rod being taken from a boat, and that was three seasons ago. However, just to be safe, consider a lock for your fuel tank, and when you are done boating for the day stow valuables such as fishing gear and electroni...

U.S. Coast Guard inspection at IBYC waterfront

By: IBYC, 2:48 AM GMT on July 11, 2014

This years Coast Guard inspection of crew documentation and IBYC Launches Cygnet and Carlotta went swimmingly. In fact it is common each summer for the inspectors to comment on how good the launches look and how well safety systems and mechanics are maintained. The entire IBYC launch crew performed the Man Overboard drill flawlessly. Upon launch inspection, other than no reflective tape on the launch's throw rings, we passed with flying colors. Concerning crew membe...

Hurricane Arthur

By: IBYC, 2:59 AM GMT on July 04, 2014

As I write this on Thursday afternoon, the consensus among meteorologists is that come Saturday afternoon Arthur will have veered east of MA, with perhaps only the Cape getting hurricany in any way. As boaters, this should absolutely not lull us into a sense of security. For one thing will be certain regardless of what this storm ends up doing: Storm Surge. We all know that storm surge causes coastal flooding, however, especially IBYC boating members whose boats are...
