Executive Committee Reports

Commodore—looking for new Rating Committee Chair, owing to lack of candidates who are both Cruising Skipper and Senior Windsurfer and are active in club, considering making position organizational duties only (i.e. giving tests only).

Vice Commodore—CSC gave about 60 rides Saturday 8/27/5 and about 50 rides Sunday 8/28/5 Thanks to everyone who skippered and organized the rides and especially to Susan Medina and Keri for the delicious BBQ’s

1st Vice—all but two of the dinghies are now fixed and the two that are broken will soon be repaired

Rear—August lessons were strong. Last week’s fast track was the biggest so far this year with 19 students, 7 of whom have already become Junior Skippers. Rhodes 19 races are Oct 1&2 and the club’s been offered sails and advice by one of the racers. The Vietnamese Boy Scout/Girl Scout group from San Jose has contacted Sheldon again regarding a lesson program. Coast Guard classes are coming up, Sheldon will announce them as well as First Aid and CPR classes in Martinez and San Pablo

Treasurer--We have $68,038 in the main accounts (plus about $2200 in the CSC extras account), up $339 from two weeks ago when we had $67,699. In the last two weeks we've hauled in $3,371: $3,240 in regular memberships, $56 8/27 Open House BBQ donations, $30 burgee, $25 windsurf locker (yea Meredith!), $20 booklets.

And we've spent $3032: $2032 on windsurfers (two new Techo 118l boards, foam to repair CSC 118l boards, harness lines), $296 8/4/5 General Membership meeting food; $278 on 8/27 BBQ food propane, $178 on Hugh the dayleader's August wages and taxes (Bon voyage, Hugh, it was great and hope you'll come back and be dl again!), $131 on clubhouse and deck construction (concrete for handicapped access ramp), $117 on dinghies (P15 mast repair parts, R19 rudder repair parts), Secretary-no report (out sailing!).
