We are in need of hosts for the Talks,  which are generally hosted by one or two members who share the responsibility for refreshments. If you would like to be involved with helping to host the Thursday Night Talk Series, please contact Shelley Vassallo at

For those new SBYC members or members and guests who have not had the opportunity to attend a talk, the format is relaxed and informal. The talks begin at 7 p.m. on Thursday evenings with refreshments. They are 45 minutes to an hour long and not limited to boating. We try to appeal to a variety of interests.
