2019 BWYC Fleet Review Ceremony
The “Review of the Fleet” is the celebration of the opening of the yachting season, and
was begun almost 40 years ago. The celebration begins with a flag raising. This will
be followed by a brief ceremony presided over by Commodore Eugene Schmitt, in which
he will recognize Past Commodores, the Current Flag Officers and Board Members, as
well as the Junior Officers. Outstanding sailing accomplishments of the previous
season will be recounted and a few comments made.
The actual “Review of the Fleet” follows. All participating boats, sail and power, will be
led out of the harbor by Fleet Captain Kippy Chamberlain on the BWYC Club Boat to parade
in circles in front of the pier. Each boat is judged on the basis of the imagination and
ingenuity of its decorations, and humorous prizes are awarded to the winners. All boat
owners are urged to participate, so begin now to plan how you will “deck out” your boat.
