  • Commodore Bob Hood reports that he will be proposing some changes in windsurfing ratings requirements. He is also working on organizing an ensign race around Treasure Island open to all cruising and senior skippers who have passed the written test and racing rules test. He would like all officers to plan and promote senior projects.
  • Vice Commodore Marceline thanks all skippers that gave open house rides last weekends. People got rides in a timely fashion and were happy. On April 26 there will be a 7pm meeting at Hs. Lordships for planning the Eastshore State Park. It will be a good opportunity for club members to express interest in sailing access to the north sailing basin which is part of the new park, and all club members are strongly encouraged to attend. The club will participate in the Berkeley Bay Festival on April 28 from 11 - 4. We need 10 seniors and 10 juniors to take people for rides and receive work credit. We have CSC hats available for $10 each from Jolanda DeBoer or Vincent Fallourd.
  • Second Vice Commodore Brian reports that he is planning to host an event featuring famous windsurfing instructor Jason Voss. The swap meet is scheduled for Sunday, May 6 from 9-12 and will be attended by Vela Windsurfing Resorts. We got 5 masts for half price and 8 carbon booms donated! This is $5500 worth of gear for $750! Rumor has it the Mistral/Naish will host a demo day at the club!
  • Third Vice Commodore Chris Havel reports that we will haul out Nenya, probably on April 21. Thanks to Sypko and Alan for their work on wiring and batteries. He congratulates Ed Corbett for his 30 year membership in CSC!
  • Rear Commodore Jolanda reports that we need teachers for Wednesday night lessons. Please contact Peter Bascek or Chris Havel. If you have taught 20 hours you are eligible for an extremely cute hat - contact Jolanda. The women’s program starts April 29 from 2:30-5 and on other dates from 1-3. Please check the flyer in the clubhouse. There will be another teaching seminar on Saturday, May 12 at 2 pm. Skippers try to take only 2 students per boat and limit lessons to one hour. Diane Althoff has organized windsurfing lessons on Thursdays from 1-2. Thank you Jim for organizing the capsize clinic and we look forward to the next one.
