SLOW DOWN... RELAX... ENJOY...

"Pine Beach Yacht Club"

Message From The Commodore

Dear Members and Friends:

Back in the fall of 2019 when I became Commodore of Pine Beach Yacht Club, I had no idea that a short six months into my term, activity at the Yacht Club would effectively cease. COVID-19, as we would come to realize, changed the world as we knew it — even in our little community on the banks of the Toms. They were uncertain and difficult times, but times that tested us and made us stronger.

As more and more Americans are vaccinated, and the world economies re-open, the officers and committees at Pine Beach Yacht Club have been hard at work in preparation for what we anticipate will be among our best years ever! With a strong and growing membership, and a solid fiscal position, our founders Charles Wheeler and William Wilson would be proud that PBYC is ready to be a “…clubhouse to supply recreational needs and provide fellowship among residents...someplace to go and meet friends.”

Traditional events which have been perennial favorites of Pine Beach Yacht Club members for decades, such as the Feed the Need Junior Regatta, Sunday Races and Beef and Brews, and even the much-anticipated Commodore’s Cocktail Party, are all scheduled as part of this summer’s activities. Commodore’s Cove will once again host Friday nights, where food, drink, and fun can be had with friends while enjoying a beautiful view of the Toms River from our first and second floor decks! The social committee has been busy developing a calendar that will include old favorites and new forays, which are sure to satisfy your social and culinary requirements! Please keep an eye on pbycnj.com/calendar.html, as our event calendar is updated regularly. Speaking of tradition, Pine Beach Yacht Club ‘s Jr. Sailing Program offers something for everyone, from land-based beginner to seasoned racer, and is planning a full eight-week season starting Monday, June 21.

Looking ahead, I know that I speak on behalf of PBYC’s Executive Board when I say that we look forward to seeing you this year!! With hardworking officers and trustees as a backdrop of support, it will be my pleasure to lead Pine Beach Yacht Club in a spirit of nautical tradition, sportsmanship, and camaraderie. My goal, in short, is to help make Pine Beach Yacht Club your home away from home on the Toms.
See you on the dock!


Russ Whitman
Commodore
