Join your fellow members and enjoy a warm welcome at Keyport YC - details about happy hour/dinner - tbd.
Richmond County Yacht Club - a hidden gem nesteled in Great Kills bay in Staten Island. RCYC has incredible new facilities and great members !
For those only planning or able to make it to Richmond County YC on Saturday 8/20, the most favoranble conditions would be if you depart as close to 9:00am (10:30am latest) to clear the VZ Narrows by 1130 so you don't fight the incoming tide.
For those who will be coming from Key Port - we recommend to make a passage at around 2pm - arrive on a rising tide at the entrance channel.
