Shooting Sailors!

"Pull, BANG, Dust" 

In addition to its boating and social activities that revolve around the clubhouse, OCYC also has an activity that occurs on the mainland. This is the "Sailing Shooters" group, which congregates about 4 times a year to shoot clay pigeons. This group originated in the fall of 2020, and has flourished to around 40 active participants including: men, women, novices and experienced shooters. Typical venues are Cedar Creek Sporting Clays in Millville, and Red Wing Sporting Clays in Port Republic. This is an outdoor activity where one can enjoy socialization before and after the regular boating season. Even if you are not a shooter, the trip through the woods is enjoyable, and lunch afterward is always a good time! Come join us!

Update May 23, 2022 :

    The weather for this year's season opening SPRING SALVO SALUTE was an exact replica of last year's kickoff event in May. Forecasted beastly hot weather however, was not a problem in the morning back in the woods with a gentle breeze blowing. We had 26 shooters, including several guests.

Since Deauville Inn was overwhelmed by the initial count of 35 for our group , we made  an 11th hour switch to "Levari's American Grill" in Tuckahoe, where, even though undergoing reservations (this year we were in a new room rather than last year's tent), they did a good job of taking care of our group. Thank you Gidge, for your last-minute arrangements to secure a location.

Awards were presented at Levari's as follow:


First Place- Brooks Garrison. 28/30 

Second (Tie) - Brian Medolla, Bert Rossica 20/30

Third -  Jeff Hextall. 18/30

Fourth- Brian Huntsman. 17/30 (Using father's Ithaca not fired since at least 1985).

Fifth (tie) - Kyle Townsend, PC Matt Vollmer, Russell Hanscom. 16/30 (Russell using rental shotgun).


                    WOMEN                                                                   NOVICE

First Place  - Cindi Hanscom                                                  Julie Ridgway


It was a great day for all who attended, and we are all looking forward to the next Season Opening Event at OCYC's Opening Day! The next "shooting Sailors" events will start in October.
