Announcing Our 2022 Commodore!
Hello HSC Members! We are excited to announce our new Commodore Elect Catherine Gross! She was elected on Tuesday March 8th 2022 by the general membership. She will begin her onboarding process in the coming months to learn the ins and outs of the club. Then in September she will take over as the new commodore at the start of the fall semester.
Here are a few words from Catherine:
Fellow Club Members-
I hope everyone is getting excited now that it’s beginning to warm up and that soon we’ll be back out on
the water--I know I am. I would first off like to say how thrilled I am to be your Commodore Elect and to
emphasize how eager I am to take on the position of Commodore for the Hoofers Sailing Club this upcoming
year. I apologize again for not being able to attend the meetings that were held last week, but I can’t wait to
form relationships with all of you over these next few months and throughout this next year.
This September, expect me to hit the ground running. In addition to maintaining the growth we’ve seen
over these past couple years, a primary focus of mine will be to reinvigorate the club after the toll COVID has
taken on the participation of current members and the opportunities available to them. I hope to bolster the
lineup of activities and classes offered, emphasizing inclusion and diversity in the process. Further, I want to
ensure that the transition from the summer season into the fall will be a smooth sail for Hoofers and that I will
be ready to take on all the necessary responsibilities from our current Commodore, Austin.
I am absolutely elated to be your next Commodore and can’t wait to see what this upcoming year has in
store for us! I hope to see everyone out on the water soon!
