OFFICER REPORTS

Commodore (Mary) - Joel met with Ali Endress, the Berkeley Marina manager, to discuss the lease and other waterfront business. There were no real take-aways, and the discussions are ongoing. The New Members’ parties are well attended, and creating a nice social environment. We have one more this summer and there will definitely be more next year. For future daytime parties we plan to ask a few skippers to come and give intro sails and/or more advanced sails which include rating evaluations. Next summer we plan to have 5 parties (up from 4 this year) some will be midday and some will be in the evening. We talked to Ray, he is on-board to be conduct chair. We will move forward and introduce him to the general membership, let everyone know what “conduct chair” means, and include a conduct chair FAQ on the website. We are still looking for a female co-chair, if anyone has suggestions.

 

Vice Commodore (Christina) - Emails are currently going out for the upcoming Open House (July 21). Volunteers are already responding. Steven, our banquet chair, is taking care of food. Loni is keeping track of our budget for club events. 

 

1st Vice (James) -  We had a dinghy repair clinic with adv dinghy students to get dinghies ready for fast track. Participation in the repair clinic is required for advanced dinghy students who want to be included in the upcoming gennaker lesson. Quest 2 is up and running.

 

Port Captain - We have a new day leader, Adrienne Coryell, who will cover the Saturday closing shift. Ray and Kevin are back and Heather left. Day Leaders are doing great, Adelaide Cahill got her junior rating and is sailing all the time. We are set for next semester too, when Ray won’t be here. Cooper is continuing to do DL trainings for dinghy rescues.

 

RC - We finished our 4th Fast Track, and Advanced Dinghy is moving along. Overall instruction is going well, although we have had days mid-week without enough instructors. We can probably improve this with an instructor workshop and working 1-on-1 with people interested in teaching. Wednesday Keelboat lessons are going well thanks to Christina and there has been good response from instructors. There have been several well attended workshops and clinics so far this summer. In August there will be a session to review the senior study group curriculum and timing. We will address questions as to whether we are teaching the right stuff at the right time and how or if the J80 fits into the curriculum.

 

Treasure -  As of 7/14/19 we have $7,583 in cash, down $1,430 from last report 6/30/19.  We also have about $17k of reimbursements to be made once DBW pays us $12.6k for the windsurf boards we bought on our grant, and about $4k for the Merit haulout, $2.9k credit card payment due end of July, and about $1.4k on Wet Marine account due next month, so we’re holding off on purchases over $250 for now.
