Commodore's Comments

commodore flagWhat a fantastic Independence Day party (and of course fireworks) we had this year; I hope you had a chance to attend! Since I am writing this before Anchor-On-The-Ware, I am hoping that, by the time you read this, I will have learned what Beer Yoga is all about (something new for this year’s event, courtesy of Erin Matthews).

We continue to have an active summer. The renewed Sunday Sailing Series continues in full force with our growing fleet of Albacores. All are invited to come and participate. If you are feeling mellow, please know you are welcome to bring a beverage and chairs and watch the activities on the water. Boats start launching about 1pm, and races start at 2 pm. Adult Sailing classes have been well attended (Saturdays from 9 am-2 pm), but we still have plenty of spaces available. Please contact me for more information.

Finally, our annual Governor’s Cup Regatta is scheduled for the first weekend of August. All are invited to watch or pitch in and help. Please contact Brownie Bartley for helping with meals or Clayton James for helping with the Race Committee.We have had some movement on several of the Board projects mentioned in recent Telltale editions. First, and as mentioned last month, we are dusting off previous studies on the installation of a pool on the property. If I recall, John Singleton and Peter Worthington last looked at this several years ago. We will reexamine what they learned. Craig Klein will lead the next steps by talking to pool experts. Second, the possibility of controlled hunting on the property moves forward, albeit more slowly as Tony Villani recovers from shoulder surgery. We are looking at both of these projects as added benefit for current members and to attract new members. Both projects will be submitted to membership for a final vote if we move forward. Feel free to let me know if you have thoughts.
