Join the New Member Activities Committee for a cruise (or drive) to Port Madison. *Greenbox starts at 4pm with potluck dinner served at 6pm in the clubhouse. Whether this is your actual first cruise as a new member or just one of your first visits to our wonderful collection of outstations, this is a great way to meet people, get to know the outstation facilities and rules and learn about Club traditions.

“Greenbox” is a longstanding SYC cruising tradition involving fun, appetizers and, notably, kind of a strange name.  Please bring an appetizer of your choice to share.  BYOB.

While we encourage all of you to arrive by boat and spend the night at the dock, this event is organized to make it easy to travel by car to spend the afternoon and evening with the group.  When you register, please let us know if you will be 
arriving by boat or by car. 

All members are invited!

Tuesday, May 24 ~ 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Where:  Mainstation Marine Room / Check-In at the Commodore's Room
