OFFICER REPORTS

Commodore: Thank you everyone for coming to the August GMM

Report on the dock situation. We reached out to three members of the port commission. Current waterfront manager is on leave so Denise Brown (the interim manager) came down with the harbormaster to assess the situation.

Stefano and the membership committee put together a packet which shows 29% growth in membership.

Tiago, the youth ride chair reports that we hosted four local organizations, and served 60 youths.

The Operating Rules committee completed an update of the ORs. Thanks the OR committee  members: John Bongiovanni, James Clarkson, Allan Champion, Mark Yampanis, Lydia Lopez, Yves Parent.

Second Vice: We have new Tabou boards. The new yard looks great, thanks to Cindoll and Kurt. The season is dying down, but there are still good days like today. This will be Peter Naulls’ last quarter, he is stepping down in November.

Rear Commodore (windsurfing): Commended Kurt, Zach and Peter on the yard work, and making sure novice windsurfing lessons happen every weekend. And thanked Zach takes care of the August fast track. We have a new senior, Prakash Stec.

Rear Commodore (sailing): We completed five Fast Tracks successfully. Our keelboat program is doing very well, fixed completely from last year thanks to a lot of instructors and enforcement of the Junior Skipper requirement. On average, we are teaching 6 more students each Saturday, 1 more each Monday, and 3 more each Thursday than during the same (summer) period last year. So far, we have awarded 6 more Sailing Novice ratings than we did in the entire year of 2016, and we have awarded 20 more Junior ratings than in the entire year of 2016. And it’s only August. So far, we have 5 new Senior Keelboat Seniors, Michael Needham, Francisco Kattan, John Bongiovanni, Nick Goyhenetche, and Ryan Lucus, four more than last year, with a couple more in the pipeline.

Third Vice: not a lot going on right now. Daisy has broken rudder. Big props to Nick G. who was skipper when it broke, he got the boat back safely. The shed if finally finished, thanks to Robert and Sheldon. We have new t-shirts

Port Captain: We hired five new day leaders, all have motor boat experience, and three have Day Leader experience.They will be great.

First Vice: We have new JY mains and jibs, we received the Venture mains and jibs, and new sails for RS 500. We have ordered a JY mast.

Vice Commodore (Donnie): I’m stepping down, having enjoyed the job as long as it was bestowed upon him. I’ve done it as best that I can with all of the gusto in my body. I love you guys. Thank you for supporting me in this position.
