COMMENTS FROM YOUR
I can honestly say that my first month as
Commodore of The Florida Yacht Club
has truly been a pleasure and a privilege.
Having a fantastic staff and a dedicated
Board of Governors makes my job more fun
than work.
The Change of Command was fantastic.
Everyone enjoyed the delicious food,
fun, entertainment and camaraderie. To
everyone who attended, thank you! If you
did not, please plan on attending next year.
This event really showcases our food, facility
and friendships, the essence of The Florida
Yacht Club.
Most of the Committees have begun to meet
to plan their activities for this year. Please
consider joining one of our Committees
as these are the “heartbeat” of The Florida
Yacht Club. They are fun, rewarding and the
best place to meet new Members. Please get
involved.
The Big Plan construction is now in full
swing. We are excited about the final
result but please understand that while
construction is in progress, The Florida
Yacht Club will be somewhat of a mess.
In February, we have some great Club events
that everyone should make every effort to
attend. See the Events Page for a complete
list. Get involved and participate in these
great functions!
The Club’s major focus in 2015 is to
continue to deliver value to all of our Club’s
Members. In 2015, the Board of Governors
and the Club’s Management Team will work
hard to add new Members. We need your
help in order to be successful! Please bring
your friends and neighbors to our Club.
Show them that we are a Club full of warm
and friendly people with a great facility
and staff. We have only limited remaining
Memberships available, get your friends to
join now before we have a waiting list and
have to say “sorry, you will have to wait.” We
have a great Club but we need additional
Members to continue to improve our facility
and deliver value.
Please come and experience your fantastic
Club! We truly appreciate your patronage
and support. We cannot complete our
mission without you so we are counting on
each Member to help us increase the value
of being a Member of The Florida Yacht
Club!
Come have fun!

Membership
Dear Members,
All of the activity taking place around the Club is really terrific to see
and we believe that this is a good indication of the success we will have in 2015!
Last year was an exceptional year for the Club with increased utilization, encouraging
financials and the furthering of our exciting The Big Plan. We have several important objectives but continuing to grow our Membership
remains one of our top priorities.
With this in mind, please review the following initiatives:
1. Introductory Program: A perfect way to engage prospective Members and introduce them into the Club while they are considering. Membership. The Introductory Program is similar to our Summer Program but is available throughout the entire year for any three consecutive months.
2. 2015 Commodores Council: For those who sponsor two or more new Members (at least one Resident), their name will be placed on the prestigious Commodores Council plaque.
3. Reinstatement Amnesty: With all of the positive things taking place, we plan to receive a number of requests for reinstatements from past Members. Following a good response from last year, the Reinstatement Amnesty is available this year from March 1st - May 31st.
We are confident that these proactive programs will provide the platform we need to aid in Membership growth. Please contact our
Membership Director, Bailey Rowland, or any Member of the Board of Governors for additional information. Thank you in advance for
your interest in these initiatives as well as the consideration of your friends and associates who will benefit from them being a part of our
great Club.

February is one of my favorite cruising months. The annual Frostbite
Cruise is a Club Tradition for both boaters and those with land yachts.
The event, hosted by Past Commodore Ira, is on his farm overlooking
Black Creek and is an event not to be missed! Boats of all sizes form
a massive chain of lines, anchors and fenders as we attempt to tie as
many boats together as the weather will allow.
Spirits are always high as we gather around a warm fire and enjoy some
other spirits before cooking steaks over the massive Yacht Club grills.
If you return Sunday morning, a feast awaits with a breakfast cookout
that will warm even the coldest of winter mornings. Please join us for
this great Club Tradition!
Progress is slow but steady in the building of our new Fleet Center.
Power is being rerouted and transformers moved as we start building
our new home on the cove. The new facility will give us a great base of
operations to grow our sailing events, youth sailing program and other
boating activities.
We are planning a return to the Bahamas this year. If you are interested
in taking your boat over in June or flying over to meet everyone in the
Abacos, please contact me so I can add you to the list. We had several
boats make the journey last year and it was a beautiful week to enjoy
all of the activities the Bahamas had to offer. Don’t miss this year’s trip!
We have many opportunities to help with our sailing programs as
spring arrives. The Orange Peel Regatta is one of our major regattas
that we will host on March 20th - 22nd. We are always looking
for volunteers to help run these regattas so if you are interested in
volunteering, let me know.
I am very proud of the accomplishments of our Junior Sailing Teams.
Under the direction of Jodi Weinbecker, they have traveled far and
wide these last few months and have many awards for their efforts. A
special thank you to our team parents as well for your efforts in taking
your children to the regattas. You and your children make us proud
when we see the many accomplishments they have made representing
The Florida Yacht Club!

Tennis
My Point
The Florida Yacht Club will be hosting a city wide Junior Team
Tennis event on February 28th. If you have a child that is in our
Orange Ball Group or older they are probably eligible to play in
this cool event. For more details regarding this event, please give
the Tennis Pro Shop a call. Due to this event, the courts will be
completely booked on the 28th of February. If you would like to
play, we will do our best to find you a court close by. Thank you
in advance for your understanding as we host this.
I want to congratulate Mark Worsham on being appointed as the
Director of Junior Tennis for the winter/spring program. Mark’s
responsibilities and goals will be to keep the communications
strong and current on all junior activities at the Club and around
Jacksonville as it pertains to the FYC Juniors. Mark will be
communicating through weekly emails, phone calls, Clubster,
Facebook and good old fashion “face to face”. He will be focusing
on building the “team” atmosphere by creating fun team events.
Please let us know if you have any ideas to help us continue to
improve and keep FYC Junior Tennis #1. Go Zone Team! If you
are not receiving email updates and would like to get on the list,
please let us know and we will be happy to add you.
February will begin the USTA league season. We have 12 - 14
USTA teams representing FYC this year. With Working Women’s
and USTA leagues crossing over on play time, our court sheet
will be very busy on Saturdays. Please keep in mind that we are
down one court right now. We will always do our best to find
you a court to play on.
Due to the construction with The Big Plan, the Mixed Doubles
Club Championship has been postponed. This Championship,
the Finals and the Players’ Party will be rescheduled to a date
following the completion of the Tennis Courts.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we are down a court
and will be down to six lighted courts during the construction of
our new courts. The new courts as well as all of the lights should
be completed and ready to play on by March 1st. We will keep
our fingers crossed for that completion date!

Happy Valentine’s day! This night is usually the highlight of
February except for maybe the Super Bowl and the Daytona
500. This year we are doing something a little different from the
norm on Valentine’s. I have created a special menu that will be
the only menu available (the menu is on the Events Page) on
Saturday the 14th. It has been awhile since it fell on Saturday
so make reservations now and guarantee a special meal for that
special someone.
Another one of the many things to look forward to this month
is the FYC Sunday Buffet. We have decided that in order to
better serve the Membership, we are going to enhance the
buffet with some new additions like Smoked Salmon, Cereals,
Yogurts and a Special Entrée that will change from week to
week. There will be a small price increase but this will still be
the best value in town.
The next Chef ’s Dinner Series will be on March 26th in the
Astor Room. I think this concept has been a tremendous
success thanks to the support of the Membership. It’s a great
chance to take advantage of learning new cooking techniques. I
will answer any questions the best I can and hopefully everyone
walks away having learned something about cooking. Look for
the menu in next month’s NewsWaves.
As for the Club traditions, we are having the Frostbite Cruise
at Ira’s Farm on Black Creek which is always a great time. We
will supply the attendees with a full salad and baked potato bar.
The Members are responsible for supplying their own entrée.
The entrée of choice is usually steak. Like last year, I will be
cutting the steaks by the ounce. See the Events Pages for pricing
and pick-up information. You reserve your steak and I will cut
it and vacuum seal it for you to take to the Cruise for dinner
Saturday night. Why go to the grocery store when you can have
FYC quality food?

How Good Was the 2014 Vintage?
A vintage wine is one made from grapes that were all, or
primarily (varies by region but typically at least 85%), grown and
harvested in a single specified year. Vintage is the year in which
the grapes were harvested. The importance of vintage, however, is
both varied and disputed. In wine produced on the colder limits
of wine production (Burgundy for example), vintage is often
very important, because some seasons will be much warmer and
produce riper grapes and better wine. On the other hand, a poor
growing season can lead to grapes low in sugar, which lowers the
quality of the resulting wine. In many wine regions, especially
in the New World, growing seasons are much more uniform.
In dry regions, the systematic and controlled use of irrigation
also contributes to uniform vintages. However, such wines are
regularly labeled by vintage because of consumer demand. Wines
of superior vintages from prestigious producers and regions will
often command much higher prices than those from average
vintages. This is especially the case if wines are likely to improve
further with some age in the bottle.
For the men and women who make wine, perhaps no word is
more packed with nervous anticipation than “harvest.” After
months of spending time, sweat and money in their vineyards,
it’s the moment to see what nature delivered. For California, 2014
brought another year of record-breaking drought. For America’s
East Coast, winter brought a deep freeze. For much of Western
Europe, 2014 was unpredictable, with sun, clouds and plenty of
hail in some unfortunate spots.
Napa Valley vintners are celebrating another early and excellent
quality year. In spite of the drought and the South Napa
earthquake, vintners are using words like “quality,” “depth of
flavor” and “excellent” to describe their expectations for the
vintage. Many are also noting “perfect weather,” “abundant crop”
and “good fortune” among the blessings they are counting in a
season where Mother Nature threw a curveball. In Washington
and Oregon, sunshine was abundant and harvest came early.
French winemakers report a challenging but ultimately
rewarding year. From Bordeaux to Champagne, spring was warm
and sunny. But summer brought cloudy wet days to much of the
country, requiring countless hours in the vineyards. Just in time,
September brought sun.
So, the answer to how good a year was 2014, varies by region, but
in general, it was quite a good year after all!
The Wine Club meets for a tasting class the SECOND Tuesday of
each month. Make a reservation to try it out by calling the FYC
Front Office (904) 387-1653. If you have questions, send me an
