NYC Group Organizing Made Easy!

Say goodbye to reply-all emails and paper sign up sheets.  This summer NYC will coordinate many events and people with on line sign ups!


Members will receive an email this spring featuring the online volunteering site SignUpGenius.  It is free and easy to use! 
Prompts will help you to create an account if you do not have one. You can manage what NYC activities you would like to support.
A second SignUpGenius will follow regarding Thursday Night Pot Luck coordination. Expect that email in early June.


Jen Lannan is our volunteer coordinator and can answer any question you have when using Sign up Genius. She can be reached at

See ya at the dock!

+ A great summer job is available for a young sailor (or maybe an older, able bodied one) 

BOAT HELP WANTED:  My age and back surgeries have made it hard for me to get out to my sailboat from the beach or to sail singlehanded.

I am in need of an able-bodied young sailor who would help me to get back and forthfrom the dock to the boat and sail with me in the
afternoon in good weather in 
June, July, and August.  There would also be an opportunity to cruise in Penobscot Bay or to race on week-ends.
On average, this might amount 
to 20 hours a week (or more with overnight cruising).  In return, I would offer $200 per week and to teach what
I know from 60 years 
of sailing, racing, cruising, anchoring, navigation, rowing and sailing a Peapod.

If interested, call or write David Crofoot.
