Cal Sailing Club

The regular meeting of the Executive Committee of the Cal Sailing Club was held at the Clubhouse on Thursday, June 22, 1995. Commodore Scott Hotes presided.

The meeting was called to order at 7:10 PM. In attendance were Scott Hotes, Narcisse, Dan Acland and Bill Csajko. There were not enough Executive Committee members present to constitute a quorum. Also in attendance were members Rebecca Haussmann and Ken Shepherd.

A report on the status of the Club's finances was not available. 


Commodore's Report (Scott Hotes)

Annual Report. Scott presented the Club's Annual Report at the Waterfront Commission meeting on June 8. Cliff Marchett is the new Marina Manager (a newly created position). It appears the Commission is close to making a decision on our new lease, which includes the waiver of the slip fee for "Daisy", and the expansion of the Clubhouse grounds.

Letter to Harbormaster. Scott noted that Robert Ofsevit sent a letter to the Harbormaster thanking them for the good job done repairing the rails on the dock in front of the Clubhouse. This action was appreciated by the Executive Committee.

Vice Commodore's Report (Veronique Anxolabehere)

No report was provided.

First Vice Commodore's Report (Narcisse)

Dinghy Status. Tim Brandon purchased the three Lido booms. Six Lidos are now sailable; two still need work on the centerboards. Robert Ofsevit is painting the topsides of "Lion". Rebecca Haussmann helped in purchasing the painting supplies required for "Lion", plus some extra supplies to have on hand for routing maintenance. Zaaf Hasnain has been replacing the boom vang lines, telltales, and other lines on the Lidos. Narcisse will purchase paddles for the Lidos.

Tool Shed Inventory. Narcisse will make an inventory of the supplies in the tool shed.

Second Vice Commodore's Report (Olivier Colliou)

No report was provided.

Third Vice Commodore's Report (Dan Acland)

Keel Boat Status. Dan and Barbara have not had time to work on the dismasted Ensign or the keel boat radios, but should be able to begin soon. Dan will work with Scott this Saturday on the radios and the lights on the keel boats. An Ensign was advertised for sail in Sausolito, but the rigging was in poor condition and the Club will not consider purchasing it.

Rear Commodore's Report (Louis Benainous)

No report was provided.

Treasurer's Report (Patrick Twohy)

No report was provided.

Secretary's Report (Bill Csajko)

Operating Rules. Bill made some more proposed changes based on comments received from Louis, plus some of his own due to further review.

Port Captain's Report (Stephen Gehlbach, per conversation prior to meeting)

Skiff Status. Stephen will have a work party this Saturday to repair the hull on the 30 HP skiff.


Membership Committee (Rebecca Haussmann)

Status of Database. Rebecca now has the Club's membership database, and provided a copy of the latest list of members. There is a total of 358 members as of today. Rebecca will retain her Port Supply card as a committee chair due to her active participation in maintaining Club boats.


Acting Commodore. Scott will be out of town for the month of July, and Veronique will be the Acting Commodore during his absence.

Budget. This year's budget could not be voted on due to the absence of a quorum.

Operating Rules. The Executive Committee discussed Bill's newly proposed changes, plus some changes proposed by Scott. A significant item of discussion was the wording of the new rule regarding sailboard lessons. It was generally felt that the current system of having no regularly scheduled windsurfing lessons is inadequate, but there was no consensus on what type of program would work in our Club. The proposed rule will only say that rated windsurfers are encouraged to provide instruction to members as needed. Discussions on the proposed Operating Rules will continue at the next Executive Committee meeting.

The meeting was adjourned at 9:25 PM.

The next Executive Committee meeting is scheduled for Thursday, July 6, 1995.
