Tax Day Has Passed

Tax day has passed, spring is here and summer is not far off and sailing season is upon us. Welcome to everyone to our 38th season of sailing. Our calendar has been put together and is always viewable on our web-site and notification of events is done by both newsletter and gmail. If you aren't getting the electronic notification please let Al Dewan know so we can make sure we have your proper email address.

There has been a change of some officers in our upcoming year and I want to thank the following for both their efforts and time of service to the club. They are Mark Brady, Jenna Meyer, Ersang Ma, Rick Jasionowski, Aaron Loichle, Isaac Hall, Gary Payne, and Greg Raybon. Thank you and the following are their elected replacements: Henry(Skip) Cioffi-Vice Commodore, Kathy Butler-Rec Secretary, Donna Gugger-Newsletter, Curtis Butler-Safety and Security, George Evans-Staff Commodore, Scott Rathburn-Rear Commodore and the following Board of Directors- Gary Butler, Peter Shearer, Wolfgang Kornwebel, Rory O'Connor and Noah Herzon. We hope to see all of you at the club and any questions can be addressed to any officer.

Moving forward the race schedule has been posted and George Evans has some changes and surprises in store so please take note and if you have any questions or would like to help out, feel free to contact him. Socially we have our Wine-Up approaching on Memorial Day w/e and if you can help or have any ideas for events please contact Skip Cioffi. The caring of the club is continuous and beach clean-ups are scheduled throughout the season and usually start between 9 & 10 am. You can help out regularly by placing your trash in the proper container and while coming up from the water's edge please look for pieces of glass, which continuously wash ashore onto the beach and any comments or ideas can be addressed to Scott Rathburn. If you have an event or story in mind or maybe a boat or parts to unload please contact Donna Gugger for the newsletter.

Keeping this short and sweet, here's to much wind and great weather, SEE you at the beach.

Learn to Sail

Our next Learn-to-Sail event is planned for Saturday, Sat, May 9, 12 pm, at the Cat House. The topic will be sail shape and Mark Modderman will be our featured speaker. We hope you can attend this informative session.

We changed 5 of our Fleet Races to Learn to Sail and Fun Events so our experienced racers can share their knowledge. After our whiteboard session is over, we will hit the water for a race. The race will be scored and posted on our web site but will not count toward Skipper or Crew of the Year. The first Fun Race is planned for Sunday, May 24, 11 am.

If you need advice on buying a new boat or just someone to answer questions, we can help. Our Staff Commodore, George Evans, has offered to help anyone who would like to contact him for advice. funforsail1067@yahoo.com (908) 692-6833

Crew Finder

If you are looking for crew or to be crew, send an email to our Commodore.
