Introducing PYC’s Tiara 35; “Encore”

It is with great excitement that we get to announce the purchase of our newest addition to the PYC fleet – Encore, a 35′ Tiara Open. She has twin Cummins diesel engines, which I know everyone will be excited about. In addition, the ample interior space makes it perfect for an overnight trip for four to Catalina and the spacious cockpit is great for enjoying some sun with family and friends while cruising up and down the coast. Encore arrived at our dock last week and while we would love to send you out today we are still in the process of outfitting it with everything to make your time on the vessel more enjoyable. We’re hoping to have it available to members in early November but we’ll keep you posted. As with any new vessel in our fleet, each member will need to go through on board training. We have group training dates scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 5 and Sunday, Nov. 20 at 10am, 12:30pm and 3:00pm. To sign up, please contact Kristin and she will get a date and time scheduled for... read more

Antennas & bridges don’t mix

Several bridges in Newport Harbor are great for the Tiara, Grady White and the Duffy, but not all. Some bridges cannot safely navigated under any conditions, while other bridges require some advance preparation to navigate under safely. With 7 islands—and therefore bridges—in the harbor to cruise around, let’s go over the steps to pass below without damage. First, check the tides and ensure you have ample water below the bridge. Most bridges are dredged for all conditions, however we do have occasional extreme low tides which can cause the navigable course under the bridge to narrow. At extreme high tides, a bridge you once went under may be impassable (such as Newport Blvd. bridge to Newport Island). Also consider if you’re “in” you may not get out of a waterway if the tide has changed during your stay. Next, do you have vertical clearance above? Make it part of your checklist to put the antenna down under every bridge (with exception of the Coast Highway bridge), and return the anteanna to its normal position once cleared. It’s easy to lower the antennae on the yachts with a twist of the cam-lock quick release on the antenna mount(s). The ratcheting action makes it easy to return the antenna to its correct, upright position. If you are not clear has to which bridges are safe and which bridges can cause a danger to vessel or crew, please contact our P.Y.C. Staff for... read more
