Have you ever noticed the burgees hanging in the Lakewood bar? It’s a long-time Club tradition to exchange burgees with other yacht clubs when LYC members visit their facilities. LYC member, Susan Hefner, traveled to Mississippi to visit her son and daughter-in-law and stopped by some nearby yacht clubs. She enjoyed Sunday brunch at Biloxi Yacht Club and Happy Hour at Ocean Springs Yacht Club. Susan received each of the Club’s burgees to bring home to Lakewood and add to our growing collection. She presented the burgees to the Board of Directors at their February meeting.
LYC member Al Goethe and Commodore Dan Faria of Ida Lewis Yacht Club exchanged burgees in Newport, Rhode Island the weekend of September 8. Goethe and LYC member Tom Sutton were there for the J/109 East Coast Championships. Sutton’s boat, Leading Edge, finished second and Goethe’s Hamburg placed third overall and first in the Corinthian division (no professionals onboard). As always, be sure to share your burgee exchange photos with us! We’d love to see them!
