Young Members of the New York Yacht Club and American Yacht Club Gather in New York City

Members of the Swan 42 Class gathered in New York City on two occasions recently to meet with Young Members of both the New York Yacht Club and American Yacht Club.  The NYYC's First Thursday in February was first and two weeks later, the American Yacht Club met at the Union League Club.  

The purpose of the gatherings was to encourage young members of both clubs to participate in the Swan 42 Fun Regatta to be held at AYC in Rye, NY on Sunday, April 19.  Several Swan 42s will be on hand with owners and half their regular crews.  The remaining crew positions will be allocated to young members who have signed up for the event.   These talented sailors will provide sailing CVs which will then be kept on file on the Swan 42 Class website and will be available to Swan 42 Owners who need positions filled on their boats for regattas where they may have a shortfall in regular crew members. 

Young Members who would like to participate in the regatta or who would like to be added to the crew pool should contact Diana McConnell, Class Manager, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
