Congratulations to Kyle Harris-Smith, who was elected to the position of Commodore during the elections held on 8/13. Kyle has been a long time member of the Hoofer Sailing Club, able to trace his root back to the youth program over 17 years ago. We look forward to the upcoming year and seeing what it brings.
One of the first duties of being elected Commodore is choosing your board for the upcoming year. If you are or think you may be interested in serving on board for the upcoming year, please let Kyle know. Kyle can be reached by emailing his current post firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending your information to the current Commodore who will then pass it along to Kyle.
On Monday, July 21 we will be completely switching over to the new reefable Badger Sloop sails and making some changes to the rigging and de-rigging procedures for the fleet. At this time, you will need to watch a short video that will describe the changes and take an associated quiz before you will be able to check out a Badger Sloop. Starting on Monday, you will be able to access the video and quiz through the Sailing Club website and your rating will be automatically reinstated upon completion of the quiz. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; this was preferable to attempting to get over 500 members through re-certification lessons.
