The Old Point Comfort Yacht Club (OPCYC) is a private organization located at Fort Monroe, VA. It is dedicated to promoting safe racing and cruising, maritime training, and social camaraderie for the benefit of its members and guests. As such, the club runs more races, cruises, training programs and parties than any other on the southern Bay. Skill levels in the club run from novice to seasoned Bay, Caribbean, and Atlantic voyagers and racers. Club members have a reputation for down to earth friendliness and can be counted on to help you out on your sail or power vessel whether it is serving as crew, installing a part, or learning a new technique. The club is a vital part of the Hampton Roads maritime community and often donates to various local charities.
Tanya and Jonathan Romero are hosting a cruise to Waterside down in Norfolk on the weekend of Nov. 19-20 for the Grand Illumination Parade. So our OPCYC season has been extended and we have a new addition to the OPCYC cruise calendar! For this cruise we will sail down to Waterside and prepare hot libations and food, crockpot style, to enjoy the Grand Illumination Parade. This year’s theme is “Winter Wonderland”. We will have a “boat crawl” between watching the parade festivities and we will also have a Best Decorated Boat contest.
