Happy Holidaze

Yes friends, it's time to wrap up 2016. What a year - great summer for boating, everything else was well… So now, let's put that one away and look to 2017 right off the port bow.

The snow is falling, we have holiday time and families and Xmas trees, Hanukah festivities, other faith holidays and all. But then it's the New Year and even if you don't have a charter planned, there's still plenty to do to keep the boat spirit warm.

Just to make sure you have it all in front of you. The Onboard elves have been busy filling up the CY Calendar and you can head there at Starting this January, we are being meticulous to pack it with good things to do beginning with all the boat shows upcoming. Regatta and other spring and summer dates have begun to roll in. Here's a tip. - I like to click the far right icon to show a whole month at a time. BTW, if you have a date to add to the Calendar, please drop us an email.

That's it for '16. We shall rejoin your inbox on the second Thursday of January. On behalf of the whole CYOB team, may the holidays and the New Year treat you to the very best!
