commodore flagWow! It's hard to believe summer is coming to an end. It seems like it was just yesterday we were raising the flags and firing off the cannon to kick off the season. I know my family and I have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the club this summer.

Once again, the Governor's Cup Regatta was a success! The Regatta was well attended by sailors from up and down the East Coast. A big thank you goes out to Ginger and Clayton James for yet another successful Governor's Cup and Junior Sailing Program. I also would like to thank all of the members who volunteered to prepare meals for the sailors throughout the regatta weekend.

On Saturday, September 16th the club will be hosting "Take-a-Vet-Fishing" for our local veterans. Please contact Bill Tunner or Steve Hanson if you are available to provide your boat or just volunteer your time to help out with this wonderful event. Unfortunately, the gale winds last year caused the event to be canceled. Let's hope the weather will be a little more cooperative this year!

I encourage members to take advantage of our club boats in the next few months before its time to put them away for the winter. Please contact either Joe Morgan or Steve Hanson if you want to reserve a date to go sailing this fall.

I am pleased to report, BOD meetings this year have gone very smoothly thanks to the hard work and efforts from this year's board members. At the end of 2017, two Board Members and I will be rotating off the board. Now is the time for WRYC club members to step forward and contribute their talents towards the continued success and growth of the club. Please contact any Board Member if you are interested in joining the board for the next three-year term.

In closing, I hope to see you all Sunday, September 3rd for the Labor Day Social, the last summer social of the year!
