Officers' Reports

I have been in touch with John Mann of the Waterfront Commission. He informed us that we're still waiting on permits from the Department of Public Works before an RFP can be issued for construction . I'll continue pushing for progress, but it is not looking promising as we approach the November deadline.


Co-Vice Commodore:

We had a good turn out for the GMM/prom, members seem happy, things are going well. Open house this Sunday, membership is great!

1st Vice-Commodore: We're taking more measures to get members to perform repairs for damage they cause while sailing,  including messages to the list and communication via teachers during lessons and fast tracks.   Hiking straps and new rig tension lines are in progress for the bahias. 

Also, we're planning a maintenance clinic for some time in September to install such things.

2nd Vice-Commodore:

We have some great events to cap off the windsurfing season. We'll be having a junior windsurfing fastrack the next four Sundays in September. Anyone with a novice rating can sign up. Contact Sophie Horiuchi for more information. We are also having a three week J+ fastrack in September. These will be on Saturday afternoons at 1;30 behind the clubhouse. Contact Rob Miller at for more information. 

Rear Commodore:

The Fast track season is completed. I will assess with others interested  and share the results of the season with omm members and set the rules and schedule for next season.

Thanks a lot to Lon in providing a lot of support, and thanks to all the coordinators who did an awesome job putting the courses together and running them.
I will get a Cruising Skipper (CS) and a Senior skipper study groups organized. The CS group will be this fall and  the senior group will be next spring. The CS group will include a CPR class for aspiring and  current CS who need a renewal.
