Message from the Commodore 

​Hello! As I write this, I am packing my trailer and ge9ng to go with some of our club members to the IDNIYRA World Championships.

If you ever get the chance to attend or just be a spectator at this event, you will be witnessing a real treat. The opportunity to meet and talk with some of the best sailors in the world is something that you will never forget. ​ The agenda for the next meeting will be “Tales from the world and North American Championships”.

Dust off your skimmer. We plan on having the Bob Reeves Skimmer Regatta as soon as we get ice. We could have this on Swan Pond. This will be a tribute to a man who got many people interested in our sport. It will be open to anyone with a skimmer, club member or not. Spread the word BE READY. We would also like to have the Rich Crucet Regatta. This will be for DN’s. So, if you have a DN, any DN show up. This would be a great way to honor our late friend, mentor, hot dog cooker extraordinaire.

We had an excellent turn out for our swap meet. There was quite a bit gear and boats available.

Our second meeIng of the season will be held on Tuesday, February 7, 2023. BS starts at 6 and meeIng promptly at 7. It will be live at the Weeks Yacht Yard. Be there!!!!

For those who like to plan ahead, we are having our 100th anniversary in 2023. We will try to have some sort of on the ice event. It will be called on very short notIce.

If you are looking for a boat, parts or gear, don’t be afraid to contact me. If you need runners sharpened, plank aligned or small repairs, contact me, or put an ice alert message out. As always, if anyone needs anything, please feel free to contact me at: dnus4925@yahoo.com.

Your Commodore, Scott Valentine ​
