New Years Update
Thanksgiving message from the Commodore
This image pretty much sums up the 2020 season. The good news is the sailing season happened, the sobering news was we were all restricted, even the duck from doing all of what we love. Now we pack up our gear, fold the sails for the winter, and dream of a return to summers past. But before we stow away everything, I want to take a moment to recognize a few of our own that shined this season
First, I would like to congratulate Paula Fleck as this year’s winner of the Madeline O’Neil Quinn Memorial Cup. Paula’s passion for sailing is witnessed every time you see her, whether it was in her 210 SNAFU in the 70’s and 80’s or on Catnap most recently, she embodies the spirit and hospitality that Madeline was known for. Congratulations Paula!
Next, I would like to shine the light on Eifion James who has been quietly chairing the House committee for the last decade. His dedication to the club and the ability to work with the many talented members is rare. This year he was honored by Kevin Logue as the recipient of the Commodore’s Trophy. Eifion earned this honor not just for the work he does with the House, but for his co-running the unenviable task of taking on the new website, and oh yeah, he coordinated and stewarded the signing of our lease for the next 30 years. I am proud to say that he accepted the role of Rear Commodore and look forward to working with and for him over the next few years. Congratulations Eifion!
Last, but certainly not least, the Executive board felt it was high time to bestow an Honorary Lifetime Member award to the legend Bill Bradford. Here is a link to a presentation he did on the history of the club back in 2016 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTi7oDv7DkA
No matter who you are, how old you are and your skill level in sailing, the only thing that seems to matter to Bill is your passion and love for the sport, as he clearly does. His efforts over the last 35 years not only rescued the Club from certain demise but propelled it back to where it was. One of the most prestigious clubs on the Eastern Seaboard, known for its Corinthian spirit, its inclusiveness, and its spectacular hospitality. Congratulations Bill!
Three Cheers to these three deserving members!
