Rye Yacht Club, the informal, free-to-join boating group based “somewhere in Milton Harbor”, will host a “Meet and Greet” May 7 in the upper picnic shelter at Rye Recreation. Both members, of which there are nearly 90, and newcomers are welcome to attend. Wine and beer will be served at no cost.
The club is the brainchild of Dr. Jeff Dorfman, who moved to Rye eight years ago because of his love for boating. Dr. Dorfman had long been amazed at the amount of locals who never took advantage of their access to the water, so he started RYC in the fall of 2009 as a way to bring residents together. Members use the message board at RyeYC.org to arrange trips, so that boat owners and non-owners can get together to share both costs and good times.
If you’re interested in attending the May event, which begins at 4 p.m., RSVP at RyeYC.org.
