Officer’s Reports


Commodore (Mary) Welcome to our first virtual GMM! I want to acknowledge and thank you for contributing to the club fundraiser in March. We are grateful that you are all here. I want to acknowledge how much we appreciate all of you, our members. Your generosity made it possible for us to have the ability to get through this and plan for the future.


I've been attending meetings with DBW affiliates to learn how other aquatic clubs are reopening. The Bay Trail Update: the work is largely done, there is still some signage that needs to be placed. The final product will also involve dock updates. Due to construction, there are times when we might be down to one dock.


Vice Commodore (Christina, Min, Tone, Lonnie) When we reopen we will not be having large groups, parties, or open houses in the near future.


First Vice (James, Memo) the dinghy fleet is still in the yard. We actually have two JYs on order. When the factory reopens up we will get two new hulls. And we have funding to purchase a 3rd. This means there will be 3 brand new JYs by the end of this year. 


Second Vice (Sofien) We ordered more booms and universals to accommodate the high touch restrictions. Racing and kid’s lessons are on hold. Our focus is to get the club open and reevaluate what’s next.


Third Vice (Ryan) The keelboat fleet is good. We are making plans for the maintenance we can do safely. Most work requires groups, but Dr. Who did get a bottom job. Other projects are on hold.


Rear Commodore (John - Sailing and Jennifer (JJ) - Windsurfing) 

John - We’ve been keeping up momentum with virtual activities. The Senior Study group is almost finished with virtual sessions. We have video sessions almost every-week for general members on various sailing topics. We are working to figure out how and when we can restart lessons. 

JJ - I Jennifer, I stepped into this position when it was vacant earlier this year. Our lesson plans are on hold until we can do this safely.


Port Captain (Brenden, Kevin) DLs are doing well. A few are in the area and will be involved in the reopening work.


Treasurer (Peter - for Stella)- Annual Statement of Financial Condition May 1 2020

As of May 1st we had $69,942 in the bank, and our property was worth $470,121 (depreciated book value). Bank balance (including the loans from the Small Business Administration) was up $48,966 from 5/1/19, property was down $28,773 (because depreciation exceeded purchases). This statement was prepared without audit from the club’s books.
