About Commodore Malee Nuesse

I have been a Hull Yacht Club member for more than 23 years with 11 of them on the executive board. I started my volunteerism as the chair to the Social Committee, launched Tide Lines and the printed wall calendar, served as eBoard secretary for 5 years and worked my way up to Commodore today. I was never a racer, but always loved sailing and being on the water; all three of my daughters went through the Jr. Sailing program with Isabel briefly racing with the Laser Fleet while home during COVID.

My husband Mike and I have owned several sail boats since we were first married 33 years ago. Starting with a 1940’s Dark Harbor 20 wooden day-sailer, we cruised Boston Harbor and surrounding areas for many years until it was sailed back (with no motor or running lights) to its original home in Islesboro Maine by Mike and a friend. We moved on to an 18’ wooden cat boat, then to a couple of Pearson sailboats and lastly, to power with Almost Home, our fun and economical 35’ Bruno Stillman sport cruiser. Sailing was always "the" destination, now we motor to it.

Recently retired from my professional career in subscription marketing management for the newspaper industry and now a ceramic artist, I plan to bring my organizational, innovative and leadership skills to my new role as Commodore.
