1. PK moved that we approve expenditures; Jennifer Kroon (JK) 2nded; Unanimously Approved (UA).

2.  Caryl Woulfe, Jared Brockway and Robert Ofsevit requested approval to take Meritorious on a private cruise to Petaluma—leaving Saturday 9/1 and returning Sunday, 9/2.

Discussion: Sunday, 9/2 from 1 -4pm is an Open House.

JK moved that we approve the cruise, with the amendments listed below; Seamus Vanecko (SV) 2nded amended motion; UA.

Amendments: Meritorious either needs to be back in time for Meritorious to be used in Open House rides on 9/2 at 1pm, or cruisers will need to pick a weekend that does not involve an Open House.  

3. Gunther Weber requested approval to lead two dinghy cruises—one to Paradise Cove, and one to Aquatic Park in San Francisco—as part of his qualifying cruising skipper cruises.

Discussion: some concern about a cruiser skipper candidate going outside of the cruising area, although there is precedent for it; some concern about there not being enough dinghy cruises for Juniors to participate in; and some concern that a keelboat will not be able to successfully rescue a dinghy in high wind conditions. PK moved to approve both cruises; no one 2nded.  JK moved to approve with amendments listed below; SV 2nded amended motion; 6 votes for; 1 vote against—motion approved.

Amendments: only the Paradise Cove cruise (which is an easier cruise to the Tiburon peninsula in lighter wind than the SF Aquatic Park cruise) would be approved as a qualifying cruise with the following safety precautions in place:

A. Every boat will have at least two senior-rated sailors (or above); one junior may be in a boat with two seniors.

B.  Every participant of the cruise is required to have a radio, whistle, flashlight and a wet suit.

C. A club keelboat with working motor will accompany the cruise to carry provisions and lend assistance if necessary.  Both the keelboat skipper and supervising skipper will be experienced cruising skippers.

D.   All boats will be thoroughly inspected for damage and repaired if necessary.


4. With the purchase of the RS Venture and RS 500, we are running out of yard space. JK moved that we get rid of (by any legal means) one Precision (aka Pig); Yves Parent (YP) 2nded; UA.

PK moved that we get rid of (by any legal means) two Precisions (aka Pig); Heidi Kearsley (HK) 2nded—2 voted for; 6 voted against; 1 abstained. Motion not approved to sell two Precisions, only one.

5. Kevin Rendueles (KR) moved to adjourn the meeting; SV 2nded; UA. Meeting Adjourned at 6:50pm.
