The Royal Moma Yacht Club (RMYC) will show its lighter side this Sunday by holding a Gilligan’s Island-themed shindig at Café Carmelo in order to mark its darker side in the form of opening Moma Narrows. States a RMYC press release:
…a 45 meter time-trial course littered with dangerous obstacles as well as breathtaking views of MOMA building 6, The Narrows are a key element not only in the club’s developmental blueprint but also its fragile set of egos.
“The Narrows, or as I often refer to it — The Eliminator — is sure to really put the integrity of our club to the test,” commented Commodore [Adam "I always liked Mary Ann better than Ginger"] Goodman in what could be judged as a cryptic yet woefully optimistic tone. “As you all know, CFO [Nick "Poopdeck"] Papa had recently sworn off eating – in essence going off the food – as he was so excited about our soft opening success. However, after testing The Narrows, he seems to have gone completely back on the food. We all think it is some weird stress reaction, because not only has he gone back on the food, he seems to have to count to 37 in rapid succession before he can even get near his yacht. He seems completely broken.”
A representative from Café Carmelo is quoted as saying, “We’ll have a great big bash at my place Sunday May 27th at 1 PM, replete with all sorts of BBQ, Gin Titonics, sandwiches, disco music, and Russians.” Further: “All are welcome to this glorious event, which will also highlight and celebrate the addition of two new members to the RMYC – Floyd Jones and his offspring Will.”
For the landlubbers, this translates to a BBQ party at Cafe Carmelo and yacht racing on nearby Loch Moma, an excellent opportunity for prospective members to see what the RMYC has to offer.
Speaking off the record, an employee from the club’s pro bono media consultant, iBarnacle, said, “The RMYC will be making another run, the RMYC promises something for everyone,” before adding. “Let it flow, it floats back to you.”
