The Waukegan | Joseph Conrad Yacht Club Board of Directors will meet for the first time in 2019 on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 7pm. All members are welcome to attend the meeting.
January 5th the winter night was brightened by wonderful performances by Grzegorz Tyszkiewicz and Natalia Kawalec. Songs varied from popular tunes to tales from the sea to English and Polish folk tunes. The singers alternated easily between English and Polish in a delightful bilingual concert.
Many of the songs were popular standards and the audience joined in to sing the choruses. In several songs the singers provided the words to the audience so they could join in.
Everyone had a wonderful time bringing life to the club with song.
The Fall Series of Waukegan | Joseph Conrad Yacht Club kicked off Saturday, Sept 15 with light winds. Racers worked every gust and lift to make their way north. The first boat finished just after 2pm.
The lake was full of boaters coming out of every harbor.
