  • Singlehanding
  • Merit 25 Donation
  • Saturday Morning Teaching Chair


Motion: John Mankey and Allan Champion be allowed to singlehand keelboats as long as they are harnessed in when above decks, with the exception of leaving and returning to the dock. They are also allowed to singlehand the dinghies at night, without another boat accompanying them. This motion has been previously passed, but there is no record of it in the minutes. David moved, Jennifer seconded, approved unanimously.

Merit 25

Motion: Accept a Merit 25 donation upon the completion of a survey and approval by the Third Vice. Jennifer moved, David seconded, approved unanimously.

Discussion: There is someone with a Merit 25 in the Berkeley Marina who would like to donate his Merit to the club. It does need a bottom job, it probably also needs new standing and running rigging. The main sail is in excellent condition, the head sails are unknown. If the boat checks out in the survey, it would be an excellent addition to the CSC keelboat fleet. This motion does not appropriate any funding for the boat, it allows excomm to accept the boat without having to vote on it again.

Saturday Morning Teaching Chair

Allan, in conjuction with excomm, appoints Todd Price as the Saturday morning teaching chair. Todd has been working tirelessly as the Saturday lesson coordinator and doing a great job! Yea Todd!

Does anyone want to be a Monday or Thursday Afternoon Teaching Chair?


Auric moved, Michael seconded, approved unanimously
