Thank you to everyone that came out Saturday and Sunday to clean up the club! We had a great turn out and so much got accomplished. I was so AMAZED how the club pulled together with short notice to fill the dock with food donations for Dano's Floating Food Drive. A HUGE "Thank You" to all of you. We have a great group of people here at the Akron Yacht Club! Stay safe and healthy.

I would like to take this opportunity ahead of our up coming meeting to remind everyone what the intention of our club is. The Akron Yacht Club is intended for the enjoyment of boating, encouraging camaraderie and fostering relationships with all that we have in common. I encourage all to keep this in mind, there is enough hate and intolerance in the world, let's keep it out of this great club that we ALL want to enjoy.

Thank you,
Chris and Michael Welday

Fellow Members

Tomorrow we will be moving the last part of the new docks to the club we will be meeting at Burchs at 5:30pm to move the main approach and the two stationary docks that are on poles. We will need at least a couple people to get in the water the rest can help from shore. Brannon is bringing a truck from work to pick these up with. We will have to sling them and guide them.

Donโ€™t forget about the meeting Thursday, Andrew will be assigning the new docks to people on the waiting list.

See you tomorrow,

Bob Ashley

Commodore

Our Story

The Akron Yacht Club is dedicated to the enjoyment of boating, promoting watercraft safety, protecting our waterways and environment, as well as being good neighbors. We firmly believe in and enjoy the camaraderie that boating naturally promotes among boaters. As a club, we are proud of the relationships and friendships that we have forged through the years with many other boating organizations; not only locally, but in the state of Ohio as a whole and the surrounding states as well. For many of us the club is our home away from home. It is where we gather and socialize with our friends and our other boating families. The Akron Yacht Club is governed by our Board of Governors and Club Officers according to the rules and regulations of our Constitution and By-Laws. Our club is non-profit and to keep our dues low, it is expected that members help with minor club and property maintenance when asked, attend our fundraisers and attend our social events. Our club operates solely though monies received from our annual dues, dock rental fees and fundraisers. Our members are also encouraged to attend our Membership/Operations Meetings which are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. For further information, or questions regarding the Akron Yacht Club call Bob or Debbie Stokes-Membership Chair and Chairman of the Board at 330-620-1564 (Bob) or 330-268-9279 (Debbie).

Thank you for your interest in the Akron Yacht Club and we look forward to meeting you!

A shout out to Andrew Wamsley and his committee for another great corn roast. One of my favorite activities at AYC. By the way, Andrew makes yummy cupcakes!
Anyone who isn't a member of the group, Portage Lakes Rocks, it really is a great group. It also lets you know what is going on in our area!
It has come to my attention that a boat was broken into at the club. The battery was stolen and their seat was damaged. I am going to check with the Sheriff to see if they can patrol more often. You may want to check your boats to make sure nothing is missing.
My favorite picture even from 2 years ago. My husbands favorite committee. It brings him so much joy to do this every year for the kidsโค
