Ex-Committee Reports

Saul (Commodore) We’ve finished overhauling one of our keelboats, but found that Daisy’s rudder is broken.

Jamuel Starkey (Vice Commodore) We gave 76 rides during our Open House today and our BBQ featured beautiful ribs that were quite a hit. I will continue to update the web site.

Michael (1st Vice Commodores) Another Lido is down with center board repairs. It would be beneficial to reduce the number of boats in the yard. The 470 is not functional most of the time; I will list it for sale on Craig’s list.

Will (3rd Vice Commodore) Thanks to John Mankey for sailing the Commander back from being overhauled at the Berkeley boat yard. Daisy still has rudder problems, so DNS until they are resolved. Our next overhaul is Dewey, with Donald following. Thanks to Saul for dealing with the rudder. Louie’s lights are not functional and currently there is no plan for Nenya.

Sheldon (Rear Commodore) There are 59 dinghy lessons given last month. Peter gave an awesome motor clinic, knowledge all Senior sailors need to know. There is a ongoing Skipper study group. I recently took CPR training, have the schedule for classes, and sign up sheets.

Meredith (Port Captain) We need Day Leaders. Several have applied from UCB, but they have not persevered for one reason or another.

Peter (Treasurer): On Spring Break in Cabo.

Lori (Co-secretary) Thanks to Peter for wandering through the city maze and finding permit costs for the clubhouse.

2) Will made a motion to change meeting time two meetings from now to 6:30pm. Motion passed, with unanimous vote.
