Commodore's Comments

commodore flagWhat a wonderful St. Patrick's Day Lunch! Once again, I would like to extend a big thank you to Shannon & Corey French and Martha & Bruce Soles for hosting another great event this year. We had an excellent turn out with several guests in attendance. The decorations made the social very festive! Thanks also to Brian Marshall for catering such a delicious lunch.

Our annual work day is scheduled for Saturday, April 8th beginning at 8:30 in the morning. There is something for everyone to do, including cleaning patio chairs, trimming bushes, mulching flower beds, and blowing leaves off the tennis courts. We are usually finished sprucing up the club around noon, depending on the turnout.

Lunch will be provided to everyone who attends. This is always a fun time for members to get together and enjoy each other's company. Please reach out to BOD members or Committee Chairs if you need any additional information or to let them know you are planning on attending. We want the club looking its best for the upcoming season. Don't forget to bring your tools!

As we move closer to the boating season, Fleet Captain Joe Morgan is preparing a list of repairs needed to the clubs two keelboats. Joe is looking for volunteers to help out with getting this work completed on the weekends in April. Contact Joe if you are available to give him a hand with these jobs.

I encourage our members and their guests to take advantage of the adult sailing program this summer. What a great benefit we have to offer, sailing Wagtail and Snagglepuss on the Ware River. It is very important to mention, the lessons are FREE.

I am sure everyone is looking forward to some warm weather and getting the boating season started at WRYC. The Flag Raising and Derby Day Social on Saturday, May 6th are right around the corner. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
