Ex-Committee Reports

Saul (Commodore): CSC club members who would like to help letter write to the City of Berkeley regarding the moving of dry storage boats to the parking lot adjacent to our clubhouse, please pick up the letter at the club. The Cal Sailing Club current asking price for the donated Santana is $3500.00; the slip fee is 150.00 per mo.

Sherry (Vice Commodore): February was a great month for memberships. The 2000-03 average for Feb is 56 memberships and $2666 in dues. But in February 2004 we sold 98 memberships, yielding $5805 in dues. The increase may be attributed to good weather, good turnout at Open Houses, and the pending dues increase. Thanks to Sypko our membership chair for this update. At our March 7 Open House we gave 144 rides, which is more than any Open House in FY2003/04, with the exception of July 4th. Special thanks to skippers Jim Pottenger, Alan Arrowsmith, Bill Gavelis and Robert Ofsevits for providing "pre-open house" rides to the Cal Engineering Honor Society. We held two sailing land schools for the Shorebird Nature Center on March 9 & 10. Thanks to members Jim Ulrick and David Cranston for teaching these programs.
