HRBYCA Monthly Meeting on Sept 26 at SYC

HUDSON RIVER BOAT & YACHT CLUB ASSOCIATION
MEMBERSHIP MEETING Sept. 26th
SHATTEMUC YACHT CLUB
46 WESTERLY RD,OSSINING, NY 10562
 
Commodore Dave Westcott and members of the Shattemuc Yacht Club invite you to the Sept 26th HRBYCA membership meeting. Get there by 6:30pm for the usual meet and greet followed by dinner. Our guest speakers will start their presentation after dessert.

Guest speakers:

Fran Dunwell is the Hudson River Estuary coordinator at the DEC. Fran has been directly involved in conservation of the Hudson River’s scenic, historic and environmental heritage since 1974. Specialties include: Knowledge about the history, environment and conservation policies relating to the Hudson River. We expect an update regarding the ongoing PCB problem with GE.

Dan Shapely is known for his affiliation with the Riverkeeper but will speak about a different project – a request to have a few clubs store 55 gallon kegs of craft beer on their floating docks. It seems the rocking action helps develop a better tasting beer. The idea is to mimic the sea conditions when IPAs were shipped to America years ago in the holds of sailing vessels.

  1. 2018 dues forms have been emailed to all the clubs. Printed forms will be available at the meeting. If you are not receiving the Treasurer’s emails please contact us.

Shattemuc Yacht Club’s Eco-Friendly Marina Expansion and Construction of Transient Slips Completed

DSC_0685

For immediate release

Dedication Will Take Place Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 2pm

at Shattemuc, Westerly Road, Ossining.

Public InvitedDSC_0729

Ossining, N.Y.– On May 13, 2017 at 2pm, Shattemuc Yacht Club welcomes the community to help dedicate its newly commissioned deep-water marina made possible with a public-private partnership between Shattemuc, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the NYS Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the Town and Village of Ossining. A variety of federal, state and local officials have been invited and are expected to attend along with representatives of various non-profit Hudson River advocacy groups. This event is the culmination of a five-year effort to signal the club’s welcoming of transient boaters. All those interested in the Ossining Hudson River waterfront, viewing the ceremony, and viewing the completed construction are welcome to attend.

Shattemuc Yacht Club, founded in 1884, received a Boating Infrastructure Grant from the United States Fish & Wildlife Service in 2015. This grant enabled the club to construct a series of deep water marina upgrades. Working in conjunction with local, state and federal officials, Shattemuc developed a two-phase program to remove the club’s aging seawall and to install a state-of-the art wave attenuation system. As a result of this program, the club will have a new facility for boaters visiting the Ossining area, with 48 transient slips and moorings and 18 new deep water slips for the Club’s members. The transient facilities will accommodate boats up to 65 feet with drafts of up to 7.5 feet at low water.

David Westcott, Commodore of Shattemuc Yacht Club, stated; “After five years of hard work, we are very excited to show off our newly designed marina and celebrate its completion. We couldn’t have done it without the hard work and support of our members and the Federal Boating Infrastructure Grant program that provided us with over a third of the financing we needed. Now we can share our beautiful spot on the Hudson with boating visitors from all over the Hudson Valley, New York and New Jersey, and even boaters transiting to and from Canada, the East Coast and the Caribbean.“

“We chose to install a state of the art environmentally friendly wave-attenuating system,” said Shattemuc Vice Commodore, Pat Yost, who initiated the project. “This system, originally designed in Finland, is used extensively in Europe, and was recently installed at the One°15 Brooklyn Marina on the East River. The system is based on a series of massive floating concrete docks which break up waves, providing a calm marina for transient boats while allowing for the free passage of fish and other marine life and clear sight lines to the Palisades across the river.”

Village of Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity commented, “We are very excited about the opportunity to welcome more boaters to Ossining’s glorious waterfront. Kudos to the leaders at Shattemuc for their dedication and vision to lead this effort.”
