From the Commodore:
Fellow Corinthian Members - we are definitely ‘at full blast’ for the summer!! Boats on the water; Competitive Racing; Sailing Classes underway; Dinner and Bar open 5 days a week; Improved selection of wines; Quizzo and Pub Nights; Fire Pit being enjoyed; even Lobsters on Sunday night - what could be better! Of course none of this would be possible without the great work of our Vice Commodore - Barry Sullivan, our Rear Commodore - Annmarie Long, our Committee Chairs, our volunteers, and our super staff led by Harry and Kristin Gleason.
Barry and Annmarie have included much more detail about the upcoming Social and Sailing events in their reports. But suffice it to say that in looking over our calendar every member should have something to look forward to this summer! And if you are interested in volunteering - there are opportunities on a number of different fronts - social, sailing, facilities, gift shop, marketing - you name it! Please feel free to reach out to me, Barry or Annmarie - it doesn’t matter if you have experience - even on the water!! Thanks again to all our volunteers!
Speaking about “on the water”- CYCCM volunteered to assist with the start of the Tall Ships Challenge, which took place 15 miles offshore- check out the cool picture!
CYCCM received some great kudos in the Tall Ships Challenge article found at https://tallshipschallenge.
For those of you who were able to come to our Spring Meeting - thank you! You heard updates from the Flag Officers and Committee Chairs - thanks to all of my colleagues for their reports and the work that they do. Since I know there is a lot of interest I want to specifically share that Long Range Planning Committee Chair Robert Bredehoft gave a very nice overview of the work that his committee has done to date on the plan. Robert also reported that we continue to make good progress on the Dredging Project - which is part of the Marine Resources portion of the Long Range Plan. If all goes well we hope to begin dredging in the August/September timeframe. An executive summary of the Long Range Plan is available on our website under the Members sub-menu - Board of Directors meeting minutes. And please join us for the Annual Meeting which is Sunday September 6th at 4:30 PM!
I have to share a couple of “Commodore Scrooge” reminders: 1) Please be careful when driving on Delaware Avenue - stay within the speed limits! The safety of our neighbors (which include a lot of children) is paramount, and the street is appropriately patrolled for speeders; and 2) The new House Rules limit guests to 4 times a year - regardless if multiple people invite the same person. All members are responsible for signing in their guests - that is mandatory. Unfortunately we have had a few violations of our policy and we will be enforcing it. Encourage your friends that want to come to our club to join! It is a great value, and as you know we are at least partially open 10 months a year. Don’t forget we have a special membership rate for those adult members under 35 years of age!
Finally - if you have not picked up your Yearbook and Address Book - it is available at the Gift Shop - 1 per adult family. Enjoy the summer at CYCCM! Please take advantage of all our club offers you!
