2020 Winter Programs
During the off season, the MYC Program Committee invites experts to present boating topics such as chartering, engine maintenance, cruising, and safety. Most programs are Free and open to MYC members and the general public. These programs offer a great way to learn something new, meet fellow boaters, and stay engaged with the Club during the off-season.
