Ex-Committee Reports

Commodore (Saul) Barbara Knox is willing to organize the YMCA rides this summer in exchange for a free 3-month membership. There is a Waterfront Commission meeting on Wednesday.

Vice Commodore (Jamuel) We gave 97 Open House rides today. One person came yesterday, and was given a ride. May 28 looks like a good day for the Ashby Shoal breakfast.

1st Vice Commodore (Michael) Nothing new to report.

2nd Vice Commodore (Asma) Members are enjoying the new windsurfing equipment.

3rd Vice Commodore (Will) Daisy is still without a rudder. The other two haul-outs will happen as soon as possible. Will will check into a report of frayed halyards on Daisy. Louie has a new battery thanks to Peter Kuhn and Will.

Rear Commodore (Sheldon) We seem to have an adequate supply of teachers. Lesson totals are down, possibly due to the inclement weather we experienced January through March. We have given 192 total lessons this year, down from 402 total lessons this time last year. Peter Kuhn is giving a motor clinic on May 1. Malou is giving laser/byte lessons once a month from April through September. A Jr. skipper rating is required to participate. There is a possibility of an upcoming rudderless sailing clinic. Fred Fannon may give a knot/splicing clinic in May. The senior skipper study group is over. Thanks to Jan, Saul and Jim P. for teaching. Twenty people signed up, eight followed through, three are interested in taking the written test now, and two would like to take it later.

Port Captain (Meredith) A few more dayleaders have been hired.

Secretary (Caryl/Laurie) Caryl reported that there is interest in getting a new CSC sign to fly/put up when we have Open Houses. Lori asked this to be an agenda item.

Treasurer (Peter) What we got, I don't know, but in the bank, we've got $75,184, up $1641 from what we had two weeks ago, which was $73,543 in the main accounts. (We've also got $2,200 in the CSC Xtras account, but Jane will tell us about that.)

In the last two weeks, we've garnered $4,992. $2900 in regular memberships, $1960 in windsurfer locker associate memberships, $105 in clubhouse donations, $27 in interest.

And we've spent $3,351 including, $1,633 in dayleader paychecks for March, $521 taxes for 1st quarter, $666 dinghies (JY trapezing parts, trailer dolly, sail repairs and fasteners), $207 keelboats (engine fuel lines, transom screws, and new battery to run Louie's lights), $258 for windsurfing (epoxy sail repair tape thread boom-cover-glue for board hospital), $84 skiff (gudgeons bolts tiller extension for low tide rescue skiff setup), $122 tools (dremel tool).

New Agenda items:

1) Ranger 26 donation. A Ranger 26 has been offered to us, but the owner wants us to keep it, rather than sell it. The buyer will be notified and told that if we accept it, we will probably sell it.

2) Money for repairing Louie. Saul made a motion to spend up to $10,000 to renovate Louie at Sven's. The motion was seconded. Discussion followed. It might actually cost $17,000. Caryl commented that we could buy a boat for the club for less money than it would cost to renovate Louie. Saul explained that the ensign fulfills our needs (cruises, teaching, Open Houses), better than most boats because of the size of her cockpit. Sheldon asked why Louie couldn't be replaced with the ensign that is sitting in the yard. Saul commented that it is good to have a back-up. A motion was made to table the agenda item. Will seconded the motion. All were in favor.

3) Ashby Shoal Breakfast date. Jamuel made a motion to have the Ashby Shoal breakfast on May 28. It is the best date as far as tides go. Sheldon seconded the motion. The motion passed with all in favor.

4) Free 3-month membership for Barbara Knox. Saul made a motion to give Barbara a free 3-month membership for organizing the YMCA rides. The motion was seconded and approved with all in favor.

5) May 5th General membership meeting agenda. Saul made a motion to approve the following agenda for the May 5th meeting: Free dinner and dessert, officer reports, officer elections. Will seconded the motion. The motion passed with all in favor.

6) CSC Sign. Lori presented an idea for a CSC sign to be used for Open Houses. It would be an old jib, with stenciled lettering. Peter mentioned that we already have one, but no one can find it. No motion was made. Lori will look into getting it made.

7) Lori proposed photographing the old windsurfing gear that the club plans to sell, and posting the photographs online for sale as her senior windsurfing project. It was suggested she add more to the project. Lori also mentioned that she would be willing to share what she learned at the Grantwriting workshop to interested club members.

8) Low tide rescue skiff. Peter made a motion to spend up to $2,000 on a low tide rescue skiff. Meredith seconded the motion. Discussion followed. The motion passed with all in favor.

9) Will made a motion that Bill Hodgkin's senior project be approved (signed off). He spent many hours working on Nenya. Peter seconded the motion. The motion passed with all in favor.

10) Donation of kayaks. Sheldon asked about the kayaks that were offered to CSC. No one knew anything about when or whether they will be donated. Kayak lessons were to be included with the donation.

11) Donation of Cal 25. Jamuel will look at the boat.

12) Ken Henderson's senior project. Sheldon explained that Ken Henderson would like to give at least one training session in first aid to a minimum of 10 CSC members as his Senior Skipper project. Discussion followed. To make a formal proposal, Ken will have to present his project proposal at an Ex-Com meeting.

Will made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Peter seconded the motion. The motion passed with all in favor.

Meeting adjourned.
