Commodore's Comments

commodore flagGood winds and beautiful weather graced the Virginia Governor's Cup Regatta. We had a great response from sailors from various states along the eastern seaboard. The competition was intense in many of the races. Thanks to each and every member who volunteered their time and talents to make this the great event that it has been in the past and continues to be. Special thanks go out to Clayton and Ginger James for their tireless efforts, and to Brownie Bartley and her kitchen crew for the great breakfast biscuits, egg casseroles and other delights. Also, thanks to those who provided their boats to set up the courses and run the races.

Due to heavy rains on July third, the club's Privateer sank at the dock. Thanks to Hunter and Sam Wilson, R T. Davis, and some of their friends the boat was righted, hauled out of the water, and taken to a mechanic. The motor was deemed a total loss and our insurance paid replacement costs for it. The funds received have been placed in the Capital improvement account for future use. The Privateer hull is in very bad condition and the board has decided to sell it.

Labor Day weekend is going to be a busy one! On September 5th Keith and Carrie Barrack will be hosting the first ever Anchor on the Ware. There will be live music, games, food and beverages. This is an outdoor event, perhaps reminiscent of Waterfuss, and an opportunity to invite friends (and hopefully potential new members) to an afternoon of fun in the sun. You and your friends may come by boat or land.

Also that weekend we are looking forward to our Labor Day social, a Hawaiian Luau hosted by Ted and Brownie Bartley, Tom and Bonnie Bernard, and others on Sunday, September 6th.

On Sunday, September 13th, the club is sponsoring a "take a vet fishing" day. This is a small token of appreciation to give back to those who have served our country. Right now we have 15 vets and 15 fly fishing coaches whom we plan to take fishing. We need 15 boat owners who are willing to donate their time, boats, and fuel to take 2 (one vet and one coach) fishermen to their favorite fishing spot. Right now we have 8 boats lined up. If you are interested in volunteering please contact me at 804-694-0694 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

If you were at the Governor's Cup Regatta you could not help but notice that the building had a fresh coat of paint on the front and main entrance sides of the building. Gilbert Birdsall organized a paint and scrape party that resulted mostly in scraping old paint, and then contracted with a painter to have the job completed by the time of our marquee event. When you see Gilbert please thank him for his efforts.

As you can see, there are still a lot of activities that are planned and I encourage you to participate and bring your friends. This is your club! Help make it more fun by becoming more involved.
