OFFICER REPORTS

 

Vice Commodore: Greetings! We’ve cleared out an area in the windsurfing yard, in the shelter where the windsurfing sails are stored, so that we have a dry place in case it starts raining. We have Thai curry with chicken make by our lovely volunteer Ashley. The first Open House of the season was excellent and we hope to continue the season strong.

 

First Vice: Hopefully the dinghies have all been sailing without falling apart.  We’re getting some new sails and we’re still working on the dinghy container. A dinghy repair workshop will be coming soon.

 

Second Vice: Repairs are continuing, and we will be having a planning meeting next month for windsurfing 2017.

 

Third Vice: The keelboat shed is moving along, and we’ve ordered three new sails. Daisy will be coming out for a bottom job.

 

Secretary: We just checked our AED, located in the clubhouse behind the desk, and it is fully functioning. Open House flyers for this year are in the clubhouse - feel free to grab some and distribute them around the Bay Area!

 

Commodore:

Joel Gussman: Our commodore Steph is stepping down after many months of being co-commodore. Thank you Steph, for your many years of service to the club.

 

We’ve created a Membership Committee, chaired by Stefano Maffulli, to coordinate efforts to increase membership at the club and get our numbers back up to 2014 levels. We’ve also connected with an organization that does promotional videos for nonprofits, who Mike Sherrell will be working with. Anyone who would like to help out with tabling, advertising, or who has skills in these areas, should contact Stefano Maffulli (smaffulli@gmail.com). One thing that any member can do is go review us online! On Google, Yelp, or Facebook. And the most important thing is to bring a friend down to the club.

 

Tiago Forte has been appointed as the new Youth Ride Chair.

 

The DBW meeting is coming up in Humboldt, which I will be attending. The City Waterfront Commission will be meeting March 8th from 7 - 9 pm to review our application for free berths from the city. Our secretary Pilar will be going, and anyone else who wants to is welcome to attend. I also will be meeting with the city to discuss the upcoming construction of the Bay Trail.

 

Our next Open House is March 26th.

 

Sophie Horiuchi is stepping down as Port Captain, we’d like to thank her for all of her service to the club.

 

Stephanie Evans: Thank you to Joel for stepping up, he’s done a great job the last 6 months working with me, and will do an awesome job by himself. Thank you to him and to all of Excomm!
