Officers reports:

2nd Vice Commodore: Clean up, sale, and throwing away of old windsurf gear continues. Special thanks for Jane for managing the sales. The repair area is much tidier; we still need to do some work on the novice boards before spring, and full inventory of the gear that remains. It's likely we will get 6 each of 180 and 220 RRD novice boards to replace existing boards from grant money. We plan an additional sale later to ensure enough yard space.

Rear Commodore: I have proposed five people for Sr projects to jointly run the Sr. Skipper study group. This is a lot of work, and they'll work as a team to make this course successful and well run. CPR and first aid class - we are working with Berkeley fire department to have this at a very good rate. We should have dates in the next couple of weeks.
