Dear GBYC Members:
I thank those of you who nominated me for the Board and I thank the Board for choosing me as your 2016 Commodore. We greet all returning members as well as new members joining GBYC this year. I wish you all a fun and safe 2016 on beautiful Lake Huron.
GBYC is known for its fellowship which enhances members' boating experience. I encourage you all to continue to foster this quality in the upcoming boating season by participating in GBYC events and supporting your fellow members.
This year your Board consists of an enthusiastic team. We have listened to your comments and will implement some changes, especially in the sail and social programmes. The Commodore’s breakfast and sail-past is scheduled June 18 in order not to tie up the entire Victoria Day weekend. Carefully check the events calendar posted on the GBYC web site.
The Board intends to manage the Club’s finances prudently while maintaining and improving our facility. I welcome ideas and input from the membership at large.
Please feel to contact me in person at the Club or by e-mail. I encourage all members to participate in our racing sail programme; it is great fun, you just have to experience it!
Members who don’t wish to enter their boats are encouraged to crew. Either contact skippers of participating boats or show up on the dock before the race events. It is a wonderful way to socialize and develop your sailing skills.
Participate, have fun, stay safe.
Commodore GBYC 2016
