Commodore's Comments

Greetings all! I am not yet ready to complain about hot weather. Your board has been busy with their various duties as you will see in some of the articles below. Junior Sailing has begun; the 4th of July social is right around the corner and before you know it the 50th annual Governor's Cup regatta will be upon us. Bring a friend to the socials, and for that matter, to the Governor's Cup as I'm sure they will enjoy the activity. They may become our next member.

A concern has been brought to the attention of the board regarding pictures on our website. Participants of Junior Sailing and the Governor's Cup sign a waiver (for lack of a better term) that allows us to post pictures. However, we do not have anything in place for our members or guests.
