SOCIAL DIRECTOR: Dar Capistrant
Hey! My name is Dar Capistrant, and I am your Padre Island Yacht Club’s 2017 Social Director.
In the past the Club has had many fun events, and this year is shaping up to be no different. The yearly calendar is full of activities and events and more are being added all the time. Most parties are arranged around a theme such as the Super Bowl, 4th of July, Thanksgiving or Christmas. Many of the parties involve a cookout, potluck or just yummy appetizers with many of the events having the Club members kicking up their heels to various bands and artists. My goal as Social Director is to provide a variety of activities that that will cover everyone’s personal interests. I invite you to come to the Club, check us out, and see if all this fun is for you!
the Fleet Captain, Below Decks:

on January 21 at 2:00 pm. All club members are welcome to attend as well. The
blessing will be performed by our very own ordained minister, the Reverend Fred

really appreciate having someone to help with the small boat events, especially
since I do not have a small boat. Looking for a fun year on the water with all

Happy New Year! I am proud to serve as your Vice Commodore working
with Butch and supporting his goals. Along with Butch, I intend to continue
working to achieve the continued excellence that the club has experienced in the
past. We must see that our club continues to attract new members and steer it on
a path that assures a sustainable future. Given that goal, I view my job as in
charge of support services and I need help. I am asking that anyone with
particular skills like electrical, plumbing, carpentry, not afraid of ladders,
good at not killing plants, etc. and are willing to provide support, to get in
touch with me. Email and phone both work. I would like to set up a list of
skilled folks that can be called on to assist me with the various maintenance
