Message From The Editor

Wake up! Hibernation's over

It's spring and that means you mangy bears can finally come out of the cave and get those boats in shape for the season.

Here at CYOB you can feel activity in the air. Info is pouring in, the CY Calendar is filling and there's a bounce to the sunlight coming in the window.

Your role in our lives is critical and now's the time to activate. We ask just three things from you.
1. Get your friends and dock mates to sign up for a subscription. There's no cost - just click here and CYOB will arrive in your inbox every two weeks. There are three editions - East, Central and West - so local coverage is just a click away.
2. Help with that coverage.. It's a big country and our regional editors can'tbe everywhere. Send us news and calendar events from your waterfront and we will be delighted to share.
3. Have a great time! CYOB wants your photos, experiences, race results, dock parties, anecdotes, blogs and opinions. The email is right below.

OK, sleepy time is over, now let's get at it!
